that's not a big deal. count basie had about a dozen of those back in the
mid-fifties, and everyone in the band sounded in tune. ellington also had
many of those, and audio quantizers too, just listen to the version of
"solitude" he made in 1957 for columbia. and that's nothing, parker and
gillespie had each an autotuner, an audio quantizer AND and a real-time
time-compressor, that's how they recorded "ko ko" in perfect unisons at
breakneck speed in 1945. most people didn't know that.
