	I figured it was a mistake, but it seems to me that the entry was 
on the nose for the most part regarding GG's life, but in the last line 
said something like "His repertory extended from Back to the Second 
Veinese School and to Jazz." Seems odd to me that that they would confuse 
pianists on the last line. I eally wish I could be more specific but I 
don't have my music arsenal up at school with me. It would either be from 
the entry on GG in the 8th edition of Bakers or the 1980 Grove.
