ABC News did a nice piece on Leonard on their Sunday Evening News last 
night. 
He really elevated the public attention to Jazz even though he took many 
other photos. 
He was fortunate that he got his negatives out of New Orleans before 
Katrina hit.

> Viewers everywhere - from London to Afghanistan - will experience the uniqueness of the world's largest free jazz festival, how it blends urban chic and a hip and diverse audience with some of the best music on the planet. "It will be fun, spontaneous, and capture the unique vibe of the festival that Russ Davis (Voice of America) described as "Jazz Disneyland" last year," says Festival Director Terri Pontremoli.

> The format of the programming allows artists to share some of their special projects - not only the performances - but what inspired and what went into their works, with hundreds of thousands of people on the web. This broad-ranging exposure may result in more performance opportunities and increased cd sales. "It not only showcases the greatness of Detroit and the Jazz Fest, but perhaps more importantly, nurtures the art form in ways we could only dream of a few years ago," added Pontremoli. "Outside of being here, it's the best seat on the planet!"
