    When was File:Liberati Portrait.png shot? Likewise File:Liberati in millitary.jpeg.
    The portrait was shot for a local newspaper (His American hometown Detriot) in 1923, and the military uniform was found appearing on the Library of Congress

    That should be noted in the picture summaries
  7. Overall:

I made some copyedits.

  • The major issue with this article are the POV wordings that are teeming in the Style section. An example is "In 1895, he became known for establishing now a well-known tradition of circus bands when be began traveling with the superstars of the circus world, the Ringling Brothers, for whom he opened performances of their popular circus gaiety.[12]" - the underlined is not defined exactly (and is confusing), and the italicized wordings are too expressive for an encyclopedia.
  • What is his nationality? The first sentence should include his date of birth and date of death, per WP:OPENPARA
  • That he was a virtuoso should not be merely noted in the lead
  • Only the infobox informs us when he was born or died. So, there should be more information regarding that, such as the cause of his death.
  • You use the +ing form too often. For example, instead of "he was also known for being a respectable bandleader for" you could just write "he was a respectable bandleader". The prose will become more engaging.
  • "He married his wife, Elsie, in 1881. They lived in New York and had one daughter." is unreferenced. What was his daughter's name? Perhaps add more information to his family life.--Tomcat (7) 20:34, 25 December 2012 (UTC)
    Most of the concerns remain unaddressed, so failing this. Wizardman 23:58, 13 January 2013 (UTC)
