A Source for Tacoma Trailer?

Wherever did Leonard get the musical inspiration for Tacoma Trailer, the instrumental cut on The Future? The Jazz Police have discovered a clue. It may be stolen from a 1968 piece by Yusef Lateef Listen to this beautiful piece, especially 5:59 onward. Sound familiar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Ode to Leonard Cohen from a fellow Zen Monk

This surprising piece is in the men's fashion section of the New York Times. A zen monk who is a member of the National Rifle Association!! Is that a new "men's fashion?" Well, he "took his gun and vanished" as the Partisan song says, and left a noble silence. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/12/06/fashi...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I just noticed that there is no question mark after "You Want it Darker," so I now understand it to be an assertion, not a question. Heretofore I and most people understood the title as (Do) You Want it Darker? They would answer jokingly, "Yes please," to mean they like Leonard's dark songs. But the...
