**1/2Eric Marienthal "One Touch" GRP Orange County resident Eric Marienthal has some of the most exuberant saxophone manners of anyone playing contemporary jazz. His work, whether with Chick Corea, David Benoit or on his own recordings (now numbering five), is always lively and invigorating. That's why it's sad to report that this album doesn't quite live up to the promise.

Jazz fans from Italy to Sioux Falls, S.D., will have a chance to see saxophonist Eric Marienthal on tour in the next month, but probably none will see him as close-up as those who packed Spaghettini's lounge Sunday evening in Seal Beach. Marienthal, a Costa Mesa resident, is one of the leading lights of the jazz-fusion world, a musician who turned a stint with keyboardist Chick Corea's band into a solid solo career.

Squeezing the music of Eric Marienthal's high energy ensemble into the intimate confines of Le Cafe's upstairs jazz room in Sherman Oaks is a bit like trying to contain a windstorm in a pup tent. Fortunately, the saxophonist's first set Monday night managed, for the most part, to keep the musical quality as high as the decibel power. Performing pieces that were drawn from his newly released GRP album, Marienthal--perhaps best known for his work with Chick Corea's Elektric Band--sounded like a player who is on the verge of discovering his own musical personality.

Marienthal is a saxophonist based in Orange County, best known for his stint with keyboard player Chick Corea's band, an association that has defined much of his previous solo work. On "Street Dance," he teams with popular fusion keyboardist Jeff Lorber, and Lorber's influence dominates the recording, giving it a decidedly different feel. It's not the first time Marienthal has employed Lorber in the studio (they also played together on 1990's "Crossroads").

Hey, Eric Marienthal! You've just spent six months touring Europe, South America and the United States, with Chick Corea, David Benoit and under your own name. Now whaddaya goin' to do? The answer, in Marienthal's case, ain't Disneyland. When the popular Orange County-based saxophonist comes home from a stint on the road, he returns to the Studio Cafe, where he's been appearing on and off for some 11 years.

It has all happened quickly for Eric Marienthal. At 30, the Costa Mesa resident and member of keyboardist Chick Corea's band has established himself as one of the hottest young saxophonists on the contemporary jazz scene. Things started breaking Marienthal's way in early 1987 after he met Corea while playing in Los Angeles with another keyboardist, John Novello. "We were playing every Monday night in a club called One for L.A.

Saddleback College's non-commercial radio station, KSBR-FM, recently raised $26,000 during its annual membership drive, about the same amount that was pledged last year. "People are counting their pennies right now, so this was better than we expected," station general manager Mark Schiffelbein said. The jazz-format station will use the money raised during the weeklong drive, which ended May 8, to pay for operating expenses and equipment not covered by the college.
