Listening to  LW records is only evidence of relative pitch awareness.
The recorded performances do not confirm the presence of perfect pitch.

Naming a pitch in isolation, out of thin air, doesn't seem to be a
particularly valuable performer skill. More like a parlor trick. (Yawn.
Check, please.)
My favorites are the posts that discuss and encourage "Groove" over
anything else.
