As its title suggests, “Travel Day for Leonard Cohen Band by Dino Soldo 10/14/2009” is a cinema verite travelogue constructed around the bus-borne journey between hotels for the musicians and support staff of Leonard Cohen’s band.
The video is narrated and directed by Dino Soldo, whose primary roles are playing “instruments of the wind” at Leonard Cohen Tour concerts and occasioning a certain amount of swooning among female fans. Mr Soldo is also, not coincidentally, the star of the flick with supporting roles played by crew, other band members, and backup singers.
A small speaking part, “man in hat occupying front seat of bus,” is adequately performed by one Leonard Cohen.
