This is indeed wonderful since in the newspaper reviews, one of the things that seems to sometime overshadow the raves is the 'scripted patter'. Keep the unscripted patter coming LC - we love anything you say!gussiecat wrote: yes, everyone was definitely "looser"......even the patter was less scripted (some of the time anyhow).......just so wonderful.
Absolutely stunning photos Eskimo! Thank you!
Eskimo thanks for the great photos. Indeed, I must apologize for my large head appearing in some of your photos. I hope it wasn't obstructing your view too much. As for the show, I was just telling someone that I thought Leonard's voice was amazingly full and well tuned. Didn't sound like his original, early recordings, but why should it? And Javier Mas was sitting directly in front of us, and he was fantastic on his 12 stringed instruments. Truly a pleasure...Eskimo wrote: Click here for my photos on flickr - the back of your head(s) may be in 1 or 2.....

Feel free to repost my comments. My girlfriend was so happy to hear "Famous Blue Raincoat" towards the end of the show. That is one of her all time favorites. She was a long time fan, before she ever knew me many years ago, and had seen him at several venues in the past. She really felt, and again it could be the proximity, that he was really "there" and in the moment. Obviously, the show has a setlist and many things are planned and rehearsed in advance, but it did not feel canned or forced in any way. It felt genuine and his admiration for the other musicians seemed heartfelt and warm. A very special evening...IMHO...
