It is difficult to put your own fingerprints on Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, but Gregory Harrington is able to do so. This is because of the tremendous close-knit and touching woodwinds that establish the song’s narrative. The richness of Harrington’s Hallelujah continues as additional elements are included in the mix. With nods to classical, jazz, and blues weaved in here, Harrington is able to make something that absolutely soars. The careful care-taking of the different instrumental elements makes a Herculean chore into child’s play. Few non-vocal tracks are able to express the same gravity as what is present here.
