Danny Wright's name may not ring much of a bell in the Southern California music community, but he's been selling records big time around the country. The Fort Worth, Tex.-born pianist, who performs Wednesday at Tower Records in Tustin and Saturday at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego in La Jolla, has sold a total of more than 2 million copies of the eight albums he has recorded. It's quite an achievement for a regional artist on a small label.

Danny Wright's name may not ring much of a bell in the Los Angeles music community, but he's been selling records big time throughout the country. The Fort Worth-based pianist, who performs Thursday night at the Wils/ Ebell Theatre, has marketed more than 2 million copies of the eight albums in his catalogue. It's quite an achievement for a regional artist on a small label. His recordings, which generally can be found in the New Age bins, actually defy category.

Maybe Tom Hernandez has stopped being surprised about the seemingly endless supply of talented running backs that show up at San Fernando High. One of this year's prodigies is sophomore running back-defensive back LaKarlos Townsend, who is battling for playing time on both sides of the ball.

Normally, Michael Wynn is the most recognizable player in the San Fernando High backfield. On Friday night, however, he was a tough guy to spot, what with his face mask lodged into the turf and all. Crespi's Christian Fauria, Frank Romano and Joe Mahoney were much easier to identify. They were the ones celebrating over Wynn's fallen body after they combined to sack the All-City Section quarterback five times en route to a 17-7 nonleague victory over the fourth-ranked Tigers at Pierce College.

Newsday excerpted a scouting report on post-World Series endorsements by an advertising agency, Foote, Cone & Belding-San Francisco. On the Athletics: Jose Canseco: Ultimate power symbol. Good looking. Not many Latin athletes to compete with. Speaks well, but has nothing to say. Behavior modification needed here. Rickey Henderson: Unique skills. Good looking. Speaks well. Good style. Presence. 'A' material. Mark McGwire: State-of-the-art "American" for advertisers.

The Angels did not trade for Robert Fick this summer, but he would be thrilled if they did this winter. Fick, the Detroit Tigers' only All-Star this season, could provide an appealing alternative to Brad Fullmer at designated hitter next season. The Angels inquired about Fick last month, before they acquired outfielder Alex Ochoa. But the Tigers would not have traded him for the price the Angels paid for Ochoa--backup catcher Jorge Fabregas and two non-prospect minor leaguers.

In "The Matador," a delightfully sly diversion, Pierce Brosnan breaks the mold and turns in what might be considered the performance of his career, the kind of witty, relaxed star portrayal that recalls those of Cary Grant and other Golden Era legends. Setting him up to perfection is Greg Kinnear, every bit as amusing and assured. As if this weren't enough, Hope Davis, one of the most protean young actresses working in films, lends further sparkle and drollery.

There were many tangible reasons why Granada Hills High defeated San Fernando on Thursday night--and why it was in such lopsided fashion. For instance, San Fernando turned the ball over four times and the Highlanders turned the miscues into 21 points. And maybe it had something to do with Brett Washington and Leon Glasgow, who rushed for a combined 258 yards. Or factor in the Granada Hills defense, which held San Fernando to 80 yards.

Ever hear a 16-year-old talk about the good old days? Heck, '8 7 was a great year, wasn't it? But Patrick Konrad doesn't sound like your average teen-ager. He sounds as though he misses his twin brother, Marty. Marty and Patrick played football Friday night when St. Francis High played host to Blair in a nonleague game. Marty is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound tight end-linebacker for St. Francis and Patrick is a 6-1, 212-pound two-way lineman for Blair. Both are juniors.
