The first time I met Nick was in 1987 when he and John were doing their Trio Years tour. I went backstage, and Nick had one of those early rectangular electronic tuners (Korg?). He was in love with it. "State of the art, baby," he said. To me, that suggests that tuning to concert pitch had always been an issue for them.
As for playing along at home, if your turntable, CD player or tape player is even a little slow or fast, it can make the pitch screwy. If that's the case, there's probably not much you can do about it.
PS: Oops. I didn't see pto's post. Maybe there is something you can do about it.
