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.

Photos Of Interest: Leonard Cohen Montreux Concert – July 4, 2013

Leonard Cohen: Montreux Jazz Festival July 4, 2013

I’m taken by the photo sets by AlexServant2009 in large part because they include not only the standard action poses that were routinely featured in the media during the tour but also shots that capture spontaneous moments that are sweetly evocative rather than heroic (for an example of this category, see the final shot of the group below).
