The daily practice battles between USC teammates Brad Bridgewater and Lenny Krazelburg have managed to push both swimmers to faster times almost every time they show up at a meet. It was never more evident than Sunday when Bridgewater recorded the sixth-fastest time in the world this year, winning the 200-meter backstroke in 1 minute 59.69 seconds at the Santa Clara International Invitational. Krazelburg was second in 2:00.

The old saw "You don't know what you've got till it's gone" certainly applies in the case of expatriate vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater. Bridgewater's opening set Tuesday at Catalina Bar & Grill, her first Los Angeles club date since she relocated to Paris about 10 years ago, was an impressive homecoming that displayed just what's been missed in her absence.

Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships in Gainesville, Fla., on Friday.

Putting the strong musical personalities of vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater and pianist Jacky Terrasson together on the same bandstand seemed risking a clash. Both are distinctive stylists accustomed to the spotlight, musicians who develop a palpable sense of drama when they perform. Could two such assertive performers coexist without getting in each other's way? Not a problem.

**** DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER "This Is New" Verve A musical free spirit if ever there was one, Bridgewater always has defied categorization, and her anything-goes brand of vocalizing reinvigorates the music of Kurt Weill. One would be hard-pressed to name another female singer working today who can finesse the theatrical elements of Weill's songs while also infusing them with comparably brilliant scat singing, propulsive swing rhythm and gorgeously lush tone colors.

The lights of Manhattan glittered in the background, as jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater set her sights on bass player Christian McBride. Cooing, crooning and creeping toward him on the stage, she sang an up-tempo, sexually suggestive blues, moaning "Oooh" and "Aaah" as an erotic tension built, stopping just short of physical contact. It was a trademark moment for one of the jazz world's most celebrated divas, but it was also incongruous: Bridgewater had just sung "Mother's Son in Law," a tune made famous by Billie Holiday, and the rest of her songs -- including "Good Morning Heartache," "All of Me" and "God Bless the Child" -- were also immortalized by the iconic singer.

Energy, excitement and exhilaration are common characteristics of a Dee Dee Bridgewater performance. And her opening night Wednesday at Catalina Bar & Grill in Hollywood added another: entertainment. The drive to engage an audience, to keep the pace quickening, to perform at the highest level of intensity seem to be the most essential aspects of her musical goals at this point in her career.

Jazz singing is a complicated mixture of elements--among them, the capacity to generate rhythmic swing, an understanding of improvisation, respect for a song's story, a good ear and a little attitude thrown in for good measure. The variations between these elements--more of one, less of another--is what makes for the differences between singers. And listeners will tend to favor those singers who most thoroughly reflect their own preferences.

It appears Brad Bridgewater doesn't quite have a watertight hold on a U.S. Olympic team spot. Bridgewater, a 1996 Olympic gold-medal winner, was pushed to the limit Friday by Newport Harbor High sophomore Aaron Peirsol in the 200-meter backstroke at the Swim Meet of Champions in Mission Viejo. Bridgewater, 26, ranked second in the world, clocked the fastest preliminary time Friday morning with a 2 minute 04.80 second swim at the Marguerite Swim Complex.

Dee Dee Bridgewater's latest album, "Dear Ella," is a salute to legendary jazz vocalist Ella Fitzgerald. In her opening night set at Catalina Bar & Grill on Tuesday night, Bridgewater made it clear that she intends to remain closely connected to the music and the style of performance symbolized by the first lady of song. When someone in the jampacked, strongly reactive audience asked for one of Bridgewater's tunes from her brief flirtation with fusion jazz, she smiled but declined.
