via the internet from the monastery’s computer. Dial-up I think, not like today!

Yes, nostalgic memories... there was only one telephone at the monastery, and Leonard could not get his computer online if one of the other monks wanted to use the phone. It was a very slow dial-up connection. At that time we couldn't send any picture attachments. He asked his manager to fax a first selection of items. The first fax was about 20 meters long. The fax machines of that time did not use sheets but paper rolls. Two days later the same items materialized in Finland by FedEx (as color photo copies, taken from his notebooks).

How interesting Jarkko! Where there's a will there's a way - we take so much for granted nowdays.

Are all your posts so negative - you don't like the Webb Sisters singing on their own and now I see you don't like Dino either! Would you have Leonard standing alone on the stage with his guitar for 4 hours? Don't you appreciate that these people complement Leonard's performance?

I love every single member of the band, and they bring a rich and beautiful sound to proceedings.

However, I much prefer the sound with Alex rather than Dino, and as such hope Dino never performs with leonard again.

I love the webbs with my whole heart, but wish leonard would sing with them. These are not negative points!
I will see Leonard tomorrow night in Halifax and am looking forward to hearing the violin.I liked Dino's contributions a lot when I saw Leonard in Glace Bay a couple of years ago but I don't blame LC at all for wanting to create a different sound.I know I personally would rather hear the violin over a saxophone.

I really missed Dino at the last concert. I will always love Leonard AND Dino was definite value added to mix. I will search him out

Well nothing is going to change now. You can always watch Live in London for your Dino fix.

... yes (sigh) ... and Songs From The Road. And there watching Dino as a most musical, sensitive, ingenious, creative and respectful sideman.
