** 1/2 Dorothy Donegan, "Live at the 1990 Floating Jazz Festival," Chiaroscuro. Donegan, who several decades ago took some pointers from Art Tatum, must give some bass players nightmares.

Linford Christie was chosen for the British Olympic team Monday, but the 36-year-old sprinter still hasn't confirmed whether he will defend his 100-meter title in Atlanta. He won the 100 in the British trials, and finished in a dead heat in the 200 with John Regis, but has refused to commit to the Olympics. Jonathan Edwards, the world record-holder in the triple jump, was missing from the British team. He sat out the Olympic trials because of an injury, but is expected to make the team.

Edwards, a devout Christian, will not compete in the triple jump this weekend at the British track and field trials because the event is scheduled for Sunday.
