Does the reduced air pressure at the top of Everest affect intonation?

Fortunately, no metal mouthpiece to stick to lips

My Playlist for this month's tune includes:
I forgot to mention your picks, Rhys. I've always loved Mose and he's in form on this recording. Most musicians I know think he's an underrated jazz pianist, but fortunately he got attention with his vocal tunes. Georgie Fame is known as a "jazzbo" among those who appreciate the music, and were surprised after "She Said Yeh Yeh". He recorded a new version with killer musicians like Steve Gadd and Will Lee (new:30 years ago!). The most surprising of the three is Zoot, I've never heard him so restrained and simple. A truly great saxophonist.

I used a transcription of the lovely version by Ben Webster as the basis of a tenor recording I just made. Ben played the rarely-heard verse in a very rubato way with pianist Hank Jones before going into tempo and finishing with the final section shifting up a semitone. That rubato proved too much of a challenge for me using BiaB so I played it solo before the rhythm section came in.
