Leonard Cohen Presents Anjani At Joe’s Pub, New York
Dick Straub, who shares with me a sojourn in Oklahoma, an admiration of John Irving, and a passion for the music of Leonard Cohen & Anjani1 has passed along this link to the video of the recent performance of the duets, Never Got to Love You and Whither Thou Goest, at the “Leonard Cohen Presents Anjani” concert at Joe’s Pub in New York.
Never Got To Love You and Whither Thou Goest
As a bonus, watch the video of Leonard Cohen introducing Anjani, who performs one of Leonard’s own songs “The Gypsy’s Wife.”

- Anjani and Anjani Thomas: An Aside On Names: Anjani and Anjani Thomas are, for the purposes of the Heck of a Guy blog, synonymous names, both of which refer to the exotically lovely, dulcet-voiced singer best known for her Blue Alert CD and her long-term relationship with Leonard Cohen. I include this clarification on posts about Anjani-Anjani Thomas in part for the purpose of what the folks at Wikipedia call disambiguation (i.e., to positively identify for the reader and remove any doubts the reader might have about which Anjani of all the possible Anjanis is being discussed) and in part to aid and abet the search engines. While a rose is, famously, a rose is a rose, a “tea rose,” for example, is not exactly the same as a “rose” – especially to a search engine. Searches that include “Anjani” as part of the search terms may not produce the same results as the same search terms other with “Anjani Thomas” substituted for “Anjani.” Should any other Anjani, say one who has not produced a CD called “Blue Alert” or one who has not been associated with Leonard Cohen for the decade, I promise to do my best to make that identification clear as well.
