1. Does he actually have perfect pitch?

Either way--I am very pitch-sensitive--and he did great!

2. It certainly seemed so, to me, and I have a good music ear.

3. I hate to be a grump, but grump:

perfect pitch doesn't mean being able to remain in tune/stick with one key.

It means someone says "sing x over high C" and a person can sing that exact note.

Relative pitch means that when someone plays the first note, you can figure out/sing notes a particular interval away from that note.

I sung with a number of folks with perfect pitch and they can get you the first note and it matches what the tuning fork/iPod app says that note is.

4. Al Green approved of his delivery.

That's all that matters to me and my amateur ears.
