November 7, 1990 | From Times Wire Services
American bass James Morris has been described as a bigger-than-life cowboy because of his love for wide open spaces and his imposing presence on and off the stage. He has also been described as demanding and aloof. But after a Monday night season opener for the Opera Company of Philadelphia, Morris was in good spirits--partly because his wife performed in the same opera. Morris sang Count Almavivia ,the philanderer in Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro."

The World Travels 1950-2000 Jan Morris Norton: 480 pp., $27.95 * Here is a tapas bar of a book, full of tiny bits carrying tangy flavors, likely to keep a taster up into the wee hours. None of these recipes is new. The writings are all excerpted from Jan Morris' long career, first as a newspaper reporter, then as a magazine correspondent and eventually as an author of three dozen books covering nearly every place on Earth worth covering. Their rearrangement gives these bits new life.

Moving indoors after a jolly summer need not be melancholy; falling leaves do not mean lowered expectations. On the contrary: Returning to the comforts and elegance of Ambassador Auditorium, for the beginning of a 19th season of concerts at the Pasadena showplace, one had to be optimistic. Much is promised, not only at Ambassador, but at most of our roofed-in musical locales, in the months ahead.

Someone who was innocent of literary fashion and the hierarchy of genres could easily write a thesis comparing the work of V.S. Naipaul and Jan Morris. Both, after all, are near-contemporaries and fellow graduates of Oxford and the British Empire (albeit on different sides). Both are master stylists, though in major and minor key, who have returned over and over to the same places as if to worry out a conundrum within themselves and in those places.

James Morris established a reputation as one of the world's premier journalists in 1953, when, at the age of 26, he climbed Mt. Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary and filed exclusive reports of the expedition with the London Times.

Inch for inch and pound for pound, Northridge guard James Morris has to be one of the nation's toughest college basketball players. An off guard at 5-foot-8, Morris routinely gives away more than six inches in height to opposing players. But more often than not, Morris wins the battle. He is the Matadors' most tenacious defender and averages 10.8 points, second-best on the team.
