Patrick" Subject: Re: % % Goverment work (saying) (fwd) 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. --peter patrick
