“Sometimes I’d return home to find [Leonard Cohen] had recited a new song into my answer machine and I’d marvel at how fortunate I was” Jennifer Warnes

I recently noted that, as Leonard Cohen memories go, it’s hard to beat David Weiss’s:

My most lasting memory of Leonard Cohen is of a night we spent together at a Tom Waits concert at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles.

Well, Jennifer Warnes may have a winner:

Sometimes I’d return home to find [Leonard] had recited a new song into my answer machine.1
