Video: More Delights From The July 9, 2013 Leonard Cohen Lucca Soundcheck

Remember “The Pitch,” the 43rd episode of Seinfeld, in which George Costanza promotes the idea that “Jerry,:” the show he and Jerry Seinfeld are pitching to NBC, would be “a show about nothing” (i.e., no plot, no stories)? Well, this is the “Leonard Cohen soundcheck video about nothing.” And, it’s delightful.

Video: Webb Sisters’ Gorgeous Performance Of If It Be Your Will – 2013 Leonard Cohen Brussels Concert

Also notable, in addition to the talents of the Sisters Webb, is the obnoxiously inappropriate, disruptive shouting from the audience during Leonard Cohen’s introduction to the song. Note that Cohen never falters, hesitates or flinches during the disturbance. One gets the idea that this isn’t Leonard’s first rodeo.

Video: Leonard Cohen’s Delightful Performance Of “I’m Your Man” – San Jose 2009

Leonard Cohen – I’m Your Man
San Jose: Nov 13, 2009
Video from arlenedick15

While the visual elements of this video are suboptimal because of the angle, this is an outstanding Leonard Cohen performance of one of his standards, and the audience’s reactions alone would justify a viewing as would Roscoe Beck’s echoing Cohen’s “Please” with his perfectly elongated and inflected “Puleeeze.”

It’s a treat.
