Is Jeff Gonzales the Cal Worthington of contemporary saxophonists? Maybe the 24-year-old Seattle native won't attempt to stand on his head as he plays, or ride his dog Spot, disguised as a hippo, into a nightclub. Then again, he's not about to stand still in front of a microphone and simply deliver sweet phrases.

Renaissance at the Dana Point Cafe's sixth annual jazz festival this weekend promises a more intimate experience than is usually associated with jazz festivals. Held on the cafe's ocean-view patio during the day and moving inside at night, the three-day event allows fans to get close to the music in a club-like atmosphere. Barbecue items will be sold during the afternoon sessions; the cafe's regular menu will be available during the evening.

The Hyatt Newporter jazz series, like jazz itself, is swinging like a pendulum. In its early years under co-sponsor KLON-FM, the series presented such straight-ahead giants as fluegelhornist Art Farmer and pianist Jay McShann. Last year, with Ritz Entertainment doing the booking, the series presented pop and contemporary acts, including bassist-producer Marcus Miller and Earth, Wind & Fire vocalist Philip Bailey.

Norman Brown borrowed a lot from fellow guitarist George Benson when he played the Hyatt Newporter on Friday. Brown most resembled the big-selling Benson as he scatted in unison with his own guitar licks, the same technique that drove Benson to stardom. He also sounded a tonal quality similar to Benson's and played two-note unisons an octave apart, a technique that Brown's trend-setting predecessor picked up from the late Wes Montgomery.

There just wasn't enough of Ronnie Laws during his appearance Sunday at the Rhythm Cafe. His set, though certainly not long, was adequate in length--the saxophonist was on stage a bit less than an hour, playing both past glories and selections from his latest album, "Deep Soul." But there was little that was deep and only a modicum of soul in Laws' performance. For the most part, he was missing in action.

Though it got off to a slow start attendance-wise, Saturday's edition of the Dana Point Jazz Festival, held on the patio of Renaissance at the Dana Point Cafe, turned out to be one great party before the afternoon was over. And while the crowd showed up fashionably late, the music, led by Jeff Gonzales' trio, was right on time. Blame the early starting hour (11 a.m.) or the weather (cool and overcast) for the sparse audience during Gonzales' opening sets.
