Tribute to Leonard Cohen

Montreal International Jazz Festival 2008

(Chris Botti - Hallelujah + Leonard Cohen - Suzanne)

(Madeleine Peyroux - Dance Me To The End Of Love)

(Michel Pagliaro - The Future)

(Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah)

The tribute concert, the video of which I watched, didn't feature Leonard Cohen himself. From leonardcohenforum.com:

This summer, Leonard Cohen went home for the first time in 15 years, and his city held a really loud party for him.

The occasion was the annual Montreal International Jazz Festival, and the event combined a free outdoor tribute concert for more than 100,000 on the city's main drag, rue Ste-Catherine, and an indoor concert by Himself at Place des Arts.

Leonard Cohen: Everybody Knows, airing Sunday on CBC, is a partial record of that event.

The show consists of black-and-white footage of Cohen performing such hits as "Hallelujah", "Suzanne" and "Closing Time" from the concert hall, intercut with colour film of the outdoor concert.
