 Hi, I have no idea how the expression originated exactly (especially
as a modifier applied to entertainment contexts), but I think this
definition will give you a little hint.

Hope that helps,

Dr. S. Roti

From: The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (4th Ed.)

absolute pitch NOUN: 1. The precise pitch of an isolated tone, as
established by its rate of vibration measured on a standard scale.
2. Music The ability to identify any pitch heard or produce any pitch
referred to by name. Also called PERFECT PITCH.

Lately I've noticed the term "pitch perfect" turning up again and again,
often in an entertainment context (i.e. Sissy Spacek gives a pitch
perfect performance in In the Bedroom). From my point of view, it seems
to have appeared out of nowhere. Has this term been defined and/or
documented yet?
