Art of Time Ensemble is a Toronto based musical collective of leading Canadian musicians from the worlds of jazz and classical music. Formed in 1997 by Andrew Burashko, Art of Time has become an integral part of Toronto’s cultural scene. They have become a destination for today’s most accomplished artists working in music, dance, theatre, film, and literature. The artists with whom the Ensemble has collaborated represent the finest in their disciplines, including writers Margaret Atwood and Michael Ondaatje; singers Barbara Hannigan and Madeleine Peyroux; actors Brent Carver and Martha Burns; dancers Peggy Baker and Evelyn Hart; and filmmakers Peter Mettler and Bruce MacDonald among many others.

"The 13 tracks on this album were recorded live in concert as part of a Leonard Cohen tribute in 2018. Over three nights, this tribute also featured 15 Canadian authors and poets many of whom knew Leonard Cohen personally. These shows were deeply emotional, and it shows in every single performance.  “In choosing the songs for this tribute, I wanted to cover the entire span of Cohen’s career, showcasing both, well- known classics and lesser-known tracks such as “Come Healing” and Treaty” from very late in his career. I also, very deliberately chose a diverse group of composers and arrangers with disparate sensibilities to create a very distinct aesthetic universe for each song. The singers on this album are all veterans and icons of the Canadian pop music scene - all forces of nature in their own right. Their passion for these songs shines through in every performance.”        - Andrew Burashko
