Linda Cohen – Leda

Linda Cohen
Leda
Label: Poppy
Catalog Number: PYS-5702
Released: 1972, 70's
Stream:

Linda Cohen was a mostly self taught musician from Philadelphia who along with being a fixture in the local avant-garde music scene, worked diligently as a classical guitar teacher for over 35 years. Her solo debut Leda is a perfectly minimal blend of gentle, fingerpicked acoustic guitar with baroque, blues, and classical stylings. Cohen is wonderfully accompanied on the record by warm modular synth and bass played by a number of guests from Philly’s underground music scene. The other instruments never overpower or distract from Linda’s playing and instead lightly color the scene with splashes of psychedelia, creating a sparse, yet comforting listening experience. Leda also includes gorgeous cover artwork by the late-great Milton Glaser RIP!
