Norman Granz — American Musician born on August 06, 1918, died on November 22, 2001

Norman Granz was an American jazz music impresario... (wikipedia)

I'm talking as a professional impresario. I'm not judging anybody at all.
My juices needed restoring. I needed a sabbatical from the record business.
To play today in London, next week in Madrid and the week after that in Warsaw is a bit better than playing Newark and Baltimore and Philadelphia. I've been doing that for 20 years.
If you look at my audiences, even in Europe, they're hardly teenagers.
The public, hearing pop music, is, without knowing it, also soaking up jazz.
