It is unconscionable that in the headline, subhead, text or cutline of this Guardian story — about a festival-goer who called the Spanish police on Larry Ochs’s trio for not being jazzy enough (and they actually came and investigated!) — nowhere is there a single Leonard Cohen joke. Did the policia enter the concert hall shouting, “Jazzer, drop your axe”? Did they discuss the fan’s grievances over grilled turtle meat? Did they even have the decency to go through Ochs’s folders? Oh, come on!
