Michael Chaves Talks about Working with Leonard on You Want It Darker

Postby MarieM » Thu Aug 31, 2017 4:59 pm

Michael Chaves, Adam's friend, talks about working with Leonard on all the songs of You Want It Darker. The discussion in this podcast is a bit techy and less about the meaning of the works, but you get a real feel of how Leonard worked. Michael also has some very touching and meaningful insights.

Ditto!
Don't skip over this one, it is an excellent revealing interview.
There is a little bit of "popping" on the microphone of Michael's phone, but it well worth a listen.

Too much Leonard Cohen is never enough.

Thanks all.

Yes, the sound quality is a little lower than usual due to a spotty internet connection. Otherwise, I'm pretty happy with this episode.
