I recall hearing an ITG tape featuring a young principal from Seattle talking about his pitchfinder, and showing how and how not to play the famous Ravel Piano concerto lick, and I liked 'em both! So a good question might be:
"So, really, what did you do different the second time?" followed by:
Find the tape and listen to how I held the half note tied to the 8th too long
then rushed the three following 8th notes!
The second time I released a little sooner so I could play the three 8th notes evenly.
Holy Cow! This event had to have occured over 25 years ago! I don't know if I would remember something to that level detail 2 months after if happened, much less 25 years later!
Now that's a steel trap mind!
See Manny! You do know how to swing! (or did)
ITG News: ABQ launches 5tet DB
A nifty device that lets one move the tuning slide out and in while playing. More popular in Europe than in the USA these days, but Manny was using them 25 some odd years ago.
Now we have inexpensive tuners that teach us to play in tune so we no longer need to adjust individual pitches in rehearsals or performances anymore.*
