Jamie Findlay makes guitar music the old-fashioned way: without electricity. "Hey, I'm not knocking the electric guitar," says the 35-year-old, who plays at Mucho Gusto in Costa Mesa tonight. "But there seems to be more than I can do with the classical instrument. It's been my choice for several years." Before that, he's quick to note, he spent plenty of time playing electric, including the eight years (1976 to '84) when he made a good portion of his living on the road with Top 40 cover bands.

A quartet with a front line of saxophone and guitar is not a particularly common jazz combination. With a few first-rate exceptions, that is--among them the L.A. Four, Charles Lloyd's group with John Abercrombie, and Pat Metheny's partnership with Michael Brecker. Add the Acoustic Jazz Quartet to the list.

John Pisano, a jazz guitarist who wrote some minor hits while a member of Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass in the '60s and later worked with jazz guitar great Joe Pass, loves his chosen instrument. "The guitar fascinates me," Pisano said. "There are so many directions you can go. There's always something to do, something to learn." If there's one thing Pisano cares about as much as picking up a guitar, it's listening to colleagues play it.

Solo piano recitals are a rare occurrence in Ventura County, unless attached to a special event like the Ventura Chamber Music Festival. Recitals by artists of international renown, in a space as intimate and flattering as the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza's Scherr Forum, are truly unexpected. But thanks to the new Ventura Chamber Music Series, in its brief but impressive first season, the respected Russian pianist Mikhail Voskresensky will perform Saturday.

The other day, the saxophonist Dale Fielder was talking to a fellow in his early 20s. Fielder was trying to explain why he'd picked straight-ahead jazz as his mode of expression, rather than, say, the more contemporary and lucrative "smooth jazz" style. "I'm not into this for the money or to be a star," Fielder, 42, told the youth. "This is a calling. This is my passion. I want to play the highest form of music there is, basically challenging myself." And jazz is definitely a challenge.
