    Mr.Clean,you are making a MOUNTAIN out of a MOLEHILL.
    I pursued the issue to determine if an error should be condoned without initiating corrective action by the player making the mistake.
    His response placed the issue at rest.
    Case closed !

    I second your vote.
    In the last 25 years of witnessing "LIVE" music in the Pittsburgh,Pa area ,I've seen nothing but stellar performances.
    The only example I can recite that should not be construed as a 'musicial mistake' occured last November 3 during the University of Pittsburgh 37th Annual Jazz Concert when a trumpeter missed his "Q" and Jon Faddis quickly completed his part while the line was repeated and the band played on.

    Mamma Mia !
    You would have been the ideal person for the 173rd Abn Bde in 1967 when they took
    the fight to Hill 875.

    Buonasera Chris:
    Thanks for your kind words.

    The approach I take in support of the arts is akin to what other do during LENT.
    Me and the missus give up an extra week of travelling/vacationing along with a few bottles
    of Gallo 2007 Vintage while directing those savings towards Music,sweet CLEAN music.

    This season (22nd) and for the very first time,the Manchester Craftsmen's Guild increased
    the Concerts from 8 to 16 with a cost of $500.00 for 16/10 for $335.00/8 for $270.00/
    6 for $225.00 and 4 for $150.00
    Me and the missus joined heads together since she is an English Major and can't count and yours truly is a purported Math major who cant read.
    Anyway,with help from our friends,we reckon that 16 Concerts is a bargain @ $31.25 per concert per person and I also reckon I'll have to remain dry until I reach my $500.00
    in savings.

    Arrivederci

    Ah- Brava, Mr. DiMonte!

    You and the Ms' are genuine enthusiasts. I sure envy you all. I'm getting there. My ears are percolating more and more all the time.


    Cheers!

    I think we are not talking about the same things.

    If the audience wants inspired music then they have a right to expect that the pros just "go for it". Playing safe is not what they payed for. If note perfect is the goal, there will be most likely a sacrifice in the musicality.

    My preference is inspired!

    Reducing a wonderful evening to one note is just plain stupid, even if the CNN effect has made this procedure popular.
