Talk about contrasts: One of the hottest congressional contests in Southern California next year could pit a ponytailed guitar god against a balding tax lawyer.

Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), a Harvard-educated tax attorney.

China Club Jams On: Contrary to an item in Monday's Morning Report, the China Club's legendary Monday night Projams are still alive and well. The action has never stopped, but the players have changed, said club publicist Joe D'Ambrosio. Jim Ehinger and the Nasty Survivors were moved to Thursday nights to make room for the Kal David Band, which performs at the Projam on Monday nights. Kal David, former member of the Fabulous Rhinestones, is known to invite his friends to perform.

Re "A Hair's Difference and More," Ventura County editorials, May 23. I assume that what you find "weird" and "loco" is Jeff "Skunk" Baxter running for Congress as a Republican. For me, the weirdness was seeing Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) standing on the lawn of the White House at the infamous post-impeachment pep rally. His blind support for our felonious President Bill "the Mad Bomber" Clinton sealed his electoral fate for many of us. As for Jeff Baxter, go for it, Skunk.

That's the Chet McCracken Jazz Band playing regularly at the new Oxnard Airport restaurant. But where's Chet McCracken? The well-known jazz drummer is on the road with the Doobie Brothers and won't rejoin his band until after the Doobies' Aug. 25 date at the Greek Theatre. Reached in Napa, where he was rehearsing with Doobies Michael McDonald and Jeff (Skunk) Baxter, McCracken said he never expected his Doobie gig to last this long. "But they just keep going and going."

There was a very special softness to Los Enanitos Verdes' pop-rock songs Wednesday at the House of Blues, a gentle quality that was very different from the nervy sonic attack that defines the other, more popular rock en espan~ol bands from Argentina. But the three members of Los Enanitos Verdes (augmented Wednesday by a keyboardist) are from the province of Mendoza, not from Argentina's big, gray metropolis, Buenos Aires.

A couple of other potential trouble spots loom in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's near future, the most immediate being the question of just who will be representing the Eagles and Steely Dan if they are inducted in their first year of eligibility next year, which seems pretty much a sure thing--alongside other likely inductees Paul Simon and Jackson Browne, and perhaps Lou Reed and Pete Townshend.
