Gianfranco, you might want to tone it down a little, and if you can find other (important) people like those that he worked with to attribute the claims of his significance to. See the section in neutral point of view on artistic works. In this person's case, the roster of the people he worked with should be able to speak for themselves.
- You are right, Robert, but what I found on the net is only an amount of enthusiast celebrating quotes, perhaps even more emphatic than my text (this  is the average tone I read), and effectively there isn't any opposing view (or I wasn't able to find it), so I couldn't balance it. I thought that it wasn't appropriated to add only celebrative quotes (the ones available - I have some jazz magazines here that really worship this man, I concluded it was better not to consider these).
- Music, and its special genres in particular, are always described alternatively with (sometimes religious) passion or with derogatory definitions, it is difficult to find an equilibre. And I admit that, having been a musician myself, I can easily fell into the same manicheim.
- However, I think it is true and not discussed that most of the jazz we are able to listen today depends on Granz's work. I actually am convinced that he really was a deeply important figure and this might be a not neutral start, but with extreme honesty, how else could we describe his role in music? :-)
Hello. I have mentioned Michel Ruppli's and Bob Porter's very fine book on Norman Granz' labels and JATP, plus my own articles and Radio Broadcasts!! Is Ruppli's and Porter's book (and broadcasts on Radio Denmark) not a reliable source?? Are you an expert on JATP, and Norman Granz?? I am an internationally recognized expert on Jazz at the Philharmonic, and Norman Granz. I have studied JATP and Norman Granz for 40 years!! If there is an error in my article, then please amend (not delete!!) my article. Best, Niels Ervill. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:41, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Hello. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:44, 5 August 2010 (UTC) My series of 68 Radio Broadcasts on Radio Denmark, about Jazz, Jazz at the Philharmonic and Norman Granz were entitled: "Jam Session"!! Under Ref., I have mentioned the name of the particular Radio Broadcast: "Jam Session", and the number, month and year!! Plus, of course, the famous book by Michel Ruppli and Bob Porter! Everything should be OK now. By the way, are you the director of Wikipedia?? Best, Niels Ervill.
