KW-25-2019: More Cohen Tribute-Projects: A Crack in Everything 2019 / 2010 in Copenhagen.

Some 40 international contemporary artists and musicians interpret Leonard Cohen’s life and work in a comprehensive exhibition, setting new standards for the encounter between music, literature and visual art in a contemporary art exhibition.

Drawing large crowds when it opened in November 2017 in Cohen’s home town of Montréal, the exhibition invites visitors to participate in several interactive works. In this way, the exhibition develops an immersive and engaging sensory experience.

Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything is organised by the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) and curated by John Zeppetelli, Director and Chief Curator at the MAC, as well as Victor Shiffman, Guest Curator. The exhibition is presented in Copenhagen by Kunstforeningen GL STRAND in collaboration with Nikolaj Kunsthal.

The exhibition is on display at both art galleries from October 23, 2019 to March 8, 2020.

KW-24-2019: The MONTREAL CONCERT of Bob Dylan in 1975, when he says: This Is For Leonard , if he is still there, before Dylan soarts to play #ISIS. – Und Beinahe wäre Cohen mit Dylan auf Tournee gegangen

Egal, ob §Fälschung, Dichtung und Wahrheit über Bob Dylan“, worüber sich dieser Tage so manche Feuilletonisten/ innen mokieren:

Der Film „Rolling Thunder Revue“ des US-Regisseurs Martin Scorsesse über die meiner Meinung nach interessantest  Tournee von Bob Dylan  ist eine vielschichtige Collage aus Fakten und Fiktion

Für mich ist diese umfassende Anthologie, die Musik von Bob Dylans legendärer erster „Rolling Thunder Tour“ 1975 auf vierzehn CDs enthält, nicht nur das beste , was ich seit Monaten/ jahren an Neuveröffentlichungen gehört habe, es ist auch ein unverzichtbares Dokument von der wohl interessatesten Tournee von Bob Dylan.

Insgesamt enthält die Box 148 Tracks, von denen mehr als hundert bislang unveröffentlicht blieben. Neben fünf professionell aufgenommenen und kompletten Bob-Dylan-Live-Sets sind die bisher unveröffentlichten Tour-Rehearsals in New Yorks S.I.R. Studios und im Seacrest Motel in Falmouth, Massachusetts in der 14-CD-Box enthalten. Zusätzlich enthalten ist ebenfalls eine Bonus Disc mit selten gespielten Songs dieser Tour.  Bob Dylans „Rolling Thunder Revue“ begann im Herbst 1975 und zeichnete sich dadurch aus, dass sie mit wechselnder Beteiligung von Gastmusikern in vorwiegend kleineren und ungewöhnlichen Venues an der US-Ostküste und in Kanada Station machte. Bob Dylan „The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings“ begleitet den von Martin Scorsese inszenierten Film „Rolling Thunder Revue A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese“, der am 12. Juni 2019 seine Premiere bei Netflix haben wird. Sämtliche in diesem Film gezeigten Bob Dylan Performances sind auch in diesem Boxed Set zu finden.

Mit dabei und für Cohen – Fans erstaunlich wie unglaublich, spätestens jetzt aber in hoher Soundqualitätz nachzuhören: Das Konzert Bob Dylans vom 4. Dezember 1975 in Montreal.

 

On December 4, 1975, at Canada’s Forum de Montréal, Cohen went to see the Rolling Thunder Revue. That night, Dylan introduced a new composition by saying, „Here’s a song about marriage, this is called ‚Isis‘ … This is for Leonard, if he’s still here.“ It has been written that Cohen had left the venue by this time, but Larry Sloman, in his book On the Road with Bob Dylan, wrote that after the show:

  • Ratso (Sloman) rushes back to Leonard’s party and escorts them backstage, worming their way through the crowds, stepping over the huge rolls of toilet paper that were thrown from the rafters by the enthusiastic audience … Backstage, Leonard greets the troops, and everyone repairs to the hotel for a party in one of the downstairs banquet rooms.

… und es gab sogar Gerüchte, dass Cohen auf dessen Rolling Thunder Revue Tour zu Dylan`s Künstlergruppe hinzustossen sollte…
