Norman Granz 1 of 7

This comment in in fact in the form of a question - How come they don't come like Granz anymore. Sure, he made money- but, he gave out so much. I cannot but be filled with admiration that he was able to have recorded and produced so much that otherwise may never have made it onto tape and vinyl ( and now in CD formats). Just think of all those many hours of the best of Tatum! Some of the fine late work of Ms. Fitzgerald eg. Duets with Pass, happened only because of Granz, in my reckoning. May his tribe never die out ( if possible).
