I've never heard jazz musicians use the term "close enough for jazz"--
only classical musicians. The reasons seem obvious enough. The cellist
Eugene Eicher, whom I took beginning bass lessons from (at UGA in 1980
or so-- I delayed my graduation 6 months so I could study with him!)--
used to say that, after our no-doubt-excruciating efforts to tune up a
half-dozen beat-up basses. Under the circumstances I forgive him...
If anybody on this list is seriously interested I could check
with a friend who plays both jazz and orchestra gigs in Atlanta.
