There's been a subtle shift in pianist Jim Chappell's music during the last few years. And with the changes has come a surge in popularity--especially in the Philippines. Not that the 38-year-old keyboardist isn't enjoying a wider audience in the States as well. His current album, "Over the Top," has broken into Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart. But on a recent tour of the Philippines last summer, he was awarded the kind of adulation usually reserved for pop superstars.

The killing of five people in Los Angeles and Albuquerque, allegedly by a man obsessed with hunting Nazis, has prompted a soul-searching review of handgun policies in the New Mexico city that prides itself on its rugged Western identity. As Nathan Trupp awaits arraignment in Los Angeles in the shooting deaths of two Universal Studios security guards, Albuquerque Mayor Ken Schultz is asking the city's gun shop owners to attend a meeting with city officials Wednesday.

The 900 residents of this Texas farming community vow that the next time a prospective doctor comes to town, it will be one heck of a house call. The chili will be extra spicy, the chicken mesquite-grilled to perfection and the steaks lavished in hickory barbecue sauce. Bands will twang at a town square hoedown. The schools and churches lining Amherst's brick streets will be shown off.

Bennie Wallace learned his way around a saxophone by studying "practically all of the great jazz saxophone players: Eddie (Lockjaw) Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Johnny Hodges, Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and Lester Young. "There's been periods where, as all sax students do, I discovered a sax player and what made him great," Wallace said. "One whole year, I was into Lester. At 19, it was Stan Getz, and I think everyone goes through their Coltrane period."

For many around City Hall, the script for recent election vote counts reads like a cross between a Monty Python skit and an episode of "The Twilight Zone." Like the year wet ballots had to be dried in a microwave before they could be counted, not to mention foul-ups involving duplicate and lost vote cards.

His right hand moving in a blur of improvisation, gripman Stephen Dickson bangs the cable car bell with the syncopated clang of a street-cool jazz percussionist. "I call this riff my 'Get out of the way 'cuz I'm coming through the intersection--in B-flat,' " he says. "I'm playing my vintage 1873 bell, so I hope they're listening."

Toni Thompson once slept in shelters for the homeless, but today she and her 5-year-old son, Ruel, live in a spacious, well-tended two-bedroom house, its backyard lined with cheerful yellow and pink rosebushes. The house is a miracle born of San Francisco's dot-com bust. For years, living in the least-affordable city in America was close to impossible for those of modest means.

San Francisco recently announced an international competition to redesign its down-at-the-heels Union Square, a pigeon-infested park hidden behind high hedges with only a fat lady atop a 90-foot-tall granite column visible from the street. The pillar celebrates Adm. George Dewey's cakewalk over the decrepit Spanish Navy in Manila Bay in 1898 and is the only part of the square declared off-limits for the redesign.
