I read somewhere that George Gershwin when he used to entertain at parties, by playing the piano, had the ability
to play tunes that others associated with certain tastes or sensations, 'Play the one that tastes like onions'
he would ponder a moment and then start tinkling out the tune the guy had forgotten or didn't know the name of.
Or somebody else would request,'Play the one that feels like this' and the guy would run his fingers across
Gershwin's shoulder blades; George would play a few notes and then into the requested tune.
A gift or a burden?
Just my 2 percent.
