Most collegiate jazz programs have long been viewed as cookie-cutter producers of technically adept big-band players. But Carney, a former rock 'n' roll pianist, found out that California Institute of the Arts in Valencia was different. When he enrolled there a few years ago, he discovered that the emphasis was on individuality.

There's more than a little local flavor in these two contrasting releases from Los Angeles-based performers. Carney's "Fables" is an appropriately diverse collection of styles that borrows from zydeco, European classical, new music and Gamelan traditions, without neglecting blues, bop and swing.

Slinging out one zesty hand-crafted number after another, pianist-composer James Carney fronted a choice quintet Friday at Lunaria. Almost all the selections played in the first two sets were taken from Carney's new "Fables From the Aqueduct" album, a collection that uses life in Los Angeles as a loose thematic center.

Late-night jazz clubs have always played an important role in the genre's life. Often operating after hours, they offer musicians an opportunity to get together in an informal setting to stretch out, jam and do their own thing once the demands of more commercial gigs have been met.

Juanita Darling, in "Tales of 1980s Brutalities by Contras Arise in Honduras" (Oct. 27), notes that "gleaning information from U.S. documents has been difficult, with page after page censored with a black marking pen." About half of the declassified material concerning Father James Carney, the priest who disappeared in Honduras in 1983, is blacked out. The U.S. government must be more cooperative in releasing more information concerning Carney and the other disappeared persons of Honduras.
