Thank you for posting this video Al.

As always a beautiful job of filming such a beautiful song.

I listened to today's soundcheck and was quite impressed by the many (great) songs that were played. For those who are interested in these songs, here they are:

1. Tower of Song (First two choruses and Leonard on his own)
2. Night comes on (Leonard)
3. Night comes on (Leonard - Immediately after finishing the song, he started it again)
4. Avalanche (Leonard)
5. Dance Me To The End Of Love (Leonard and band)
6. Going Home (Leonard and band, only first chorus)
7. The Future (Leonard and band. With the "give me crack and anal sex" line instead of "careless sex")
8. Anyhow (Leonard and band)
9. Field Commander Cohen (Leonard and band)
10. Coming Back To You (Beginning)
11. It it be your will (Beginning)

I was really happy to hear Night comes on (twice!), Avalanche, Anyhow and Field Commander Cohen. :D

Whatever happened to "the master of breath" Dino Soldo is none of my business, but I greatly missed him during the concerts. To me, his wind instruments were an indispensable balance to all the other string instruments. This has left a huge void which even the genius violin of Alexandru Bublitchi cannot fill..... :D but also :(

I was so fortunate to see 2 of the 5 concerts (august 14 and 17) and all I can say to those who have tickets for the upcoming concerts:
sheer beauty is coming your way.
