Will the real Jerry Hadley please stand up? Two tenors, both personable, appeared under the same name Saturday night amid the glitzy neo-Deco splendors of the Alex quasi-movie-palace/would-be-concert-hall in Glendale. The first Hadley was a bright and brash opera star with a penchant for easy effects. The second turned out to be a hard-sell show-biz idol who often sang artfully. Ah, paradoxes.

Jerry Hadley, the celebrated lyric tenor who gave his first Southern California recital Wednesday night at Ambassador Auditorium, commands an extraordinary talent. His voice is compellingly sweet and pure, fresh and bright. He uses it with canny finesse. He can rise to ringing forte climaxes. He also can file the sound down to a pianissimo point that shimmers in the mist. He focuses generous, daring head tones when mood, tradition and ascending lines permit.
