MUSIC An L.A. native who's been a fixture around town with the likes of Peter Erskine, Anthony Wilson and veteran trumpeter-vocalist Jack Sheldon, pianist Josh Nelson sounds poised for national prominence on his fifth album as a bandleader, "Discoveries. " Though packed with nods to the vintage sci-fi of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne, the album's sound feels grounded in the now, with rich ensemble playing and a gracefully ambitious compositional voice. Here he performs with a nimble quartet that features guitarist Larry Koonse.

When Mississippi football fans gather to tailgate in The Grove, a 10-acre plot shaded by large oak trees in the center of the Oxford campus, they recall the glory days of former quarterbacks such as Charlie Conerly, Jake Gibbs and, of course, Archie Manning. It has not been easy for any of the quarterbacks who have followed Manning, who led the Rebels to an 8-3 record and a Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas in 1969 as a junior.

My age is 53 and I've never had a front-row seat at Dodger Stadium. Like young Josh Nelson [Viewpoint, May 4], I too was at the Dodger-Cub game on the afternoon of April 28. Unlike Josh, I was there to see a baseball game. Like Josh, I brought a baseball. Unlike Josh, Mike Piazza signed mine. I thanked him. Instead of asking me for $50, Mike wished me good luck. Maybe there is something to be said for age and maturity. ALAN MATIS Woodland Hills So, a 12-year-old writes that Mike Piazza wanted $50 to autograph his baseball.

My age is 12 and April 28 was my first time to have a front-row seat at Dodger Stadium. I was really excited because I thought I was going to get some autographs. No offense to the other players, but I was mainly trying to get Mike Piazza's autograph. But when I asked him to sign my baseball, he said, "You got 50 dollars on you, kid?" JOSH NELSON Northridge

When Fullerton Coach Marv Sampson raves about quarterback Josh Nelson, his praise is not confined to Nelson's football skills. Nelson, a freshman, began pushing for the starting job during summer drills and won it by the second game of the season. But it is Nelson's personal qualities that impress Sampson most. Nelson, who is 6 feet 3 and 195 pounds, was recruited by UC Davis after playing at Servite High School last season. But he didn't feel right about leaving Orange County.

I looked forward to Bill Plaschke's article in Sunday's edition (May 12) about the questionable letter written by Josh Nelson that besmirched Mike Piazza's good name and reputation. I had to read it three times, thinking I had missed "it." I read that in the past that letter "would have been checked 10 times before landing in a newspaper." But, nope, I couldn't find "it." "It" is an apology to Mike Piazza and to his good name. Shame on you!! I was taught that a person's good reputation was one's most valuable commodity and could not be bought or sold, yet you feel no compunction about printing a letter willy-nilly that damages one of our finer sports figures on and off the field.
