RE: Triple play again

OT by now, but when you have older pianos that can't really be kept in top condition (like a 3/4 iron frame) you can take liberties, which is great fun. If you take the face off it and have a tuning key you can manipulate it in real time., I had a friend who was a pianist who was pushing towards the Andrew Hill style until he discovered the Bandoneon (my fault) but he would play Andrew Hill sequences or melodies and I would pitch bend with the piano in realtime. It sounded unimaginably perfect. My job was also to get it back to pitch after, with often meant over-shoot of the correction. But yes, it was one of the best sounds I've ever heard. God I wish I'd recorded it.
