The way John Pisano loves Brazilian music, you'd think he was born in Rio de Janeiro instead of Brooklyn. "When I was playing with Sergio Mendes in Brazil a few years ago," guitarist Pisano recalls, "people would look at Sergio and point at me and ask, 'Brasileiro?' 'Is he Brazilian?' My main energy has been into Brazilian stuff for years."

A man with alleged family ties to organized crime has been released from prison because of jury "errors" four years after he was convicted of a gang-style slaying that he claimed was self-defense. Salvatore Marino, 38, left San Quentin Prison only hours after a federal appellate court judge cleared the way for his release. Marino had been convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to nine years in prison.

Cornetist-fluegelhornist Don Rader and his combo put it together, literally piece by piece, to begin their second set Saturday at Vinnie's Ristorante. The experience, for the few who were there to see and hear it, was an object lesson in how music is constructed. It started before any of the foursome--Rader, keyboard player Joe Massimino, bassist Jack Prather and drummer Jack Lecaire--even stepped into the tiny space that serves as a bandstand.

Flutist Holly Hofmann knows her strengths and has the smarts to play to them. First, Hofmann puts her exquisite tone in the forefront. Working in a mainstream jazz mode Saturday at Vinnie's with the solid trio of keyboardist Joe Massimino, bassist Luther Hughes and drummer Art Rodriguez, the San Diego resident emphasized her lovely sound by playing plenty of long notes that allowed it to ring. Even when she played brief notes, they still had a nice fatness to them.

Guitarist/composer John Pisano likes to joke that his particular affinity for Brazilian music stems from his having been a Brazilian in a former life. "I was in Brazil with Sergio Mendes a few years ago and when I started playing, people would look at Sergio, point at me and ask, 'Brasileiro? ' 'Is he Brazilian?' " the 57-year-old musician recalled at his Studio City home. "I've just had a feel for it (Brazilian music). I can't put my finger on why. The feeling's been there a long time."

When you hear pianist Guilherme Vergueiro's highly rhythmic, strongly melodic Brazilian music, you might think he's blended a heavy jazz element with the strains of his native land. But don't suggest that to him. "I just play samba," said the 37-year-old musician, who appears Friday and Saturday at Maxwell's in Huntington Beach. "The samba is the Brazilian jazz," said Vergueiro, who hails from Sao Paulo and who has lived in North Hollywood for two years.

Ten homeless people left the Santa Monica streets for a bunk bed on a clean concrete floor last week as part of the city's strategy to close the parks at night and provide an alternative place for people to sleep. But although Samoshel, a new homeless shelter at 505 Olympic Blvd., opened its doors to its first residents Thursday, it won't be fully open for another month. And it will probably never attract everyone who spends the night in the city's public areas.

Mike Stewart, in his 24th season as a cross-country coach at Newbury Park High, knows as well as anyone that running well in September doesn't guarantee similar results in the championship meets in November. But he's been pleased with the way the top five runners on his boys' team have performed in the first two meets. Newbury Park defeated Camarillo, Crescenta Valley, Burbank and Agoura on Sept.

When jazz drummer Art Blakey died in October, the jazz world lost one of its legends, but Blakey's spirit lives on through the many famous alumni of his bands: Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Dorham, Lee Morgan and others. One of the last to benefit from Blakey's tutelage was former San Diegan Brian Lynch, a member of Blakey's group until it disbanded after his death.
