Quincy Jones, jazz musician, composer and producer of records and television shows, burst back into the limelight as a performing artist Wednesday, winning six Grammy awards for his eclectic album "Back on the Block." "I can't believe this," said Jones, a tremor in his voice as he accepted the album of the year award at the Grammy ceremonies. "I've been in this academy since 1958 and this is the first time I ever dared to think about having a Grammy under my own name. And I'm so proud."

Julie Gold is living a fantasy, but one made possible largely by the harshest of realities: Her song "From a Distance," a gentle prayer of hope and harmony, has become the song of the Persian Gulf War. The song is actually 5 years old. But a version released by Bette Midler last fall has tapped into the often ambiguous mind-set that has accompanied the war.

I really identified with Amy Sutherland's article in the June 25 issue ("No Baking? That Truly Takes the Cake," Commentary). As a former Pillsbury Bake-Off winner (3rd Senior) in 1959, I have been echoing her sentiments for years. When I competed as a new bride many years ago, the converted kitchen in the grand ballroom of the new Beverly Hilton Hotel smelled like heaven. Although my Golden Onion Rolls had a distinct, enticing aroma.... I had many fans, including Ronald Reagan -- who was with General Electric -- and Art Linkletter and Greer Garson, who were the hosts of the Bake-Off.

John Madden's got his team, and I've got mine. And here to introduce the first Valley and Ventura region all-name high school soccer team is, well, Jon Madden, who also happens to play on the Chaminade High boys' team. To get us started, we should probably go with Gogo Rothbart from the Buckley girls' team. After her, we will break off the players by academic subjects. Leading all historical discussions will be Genghis Hernandez of the Burroughs boys' team.

There really is no place to put Nanci Griffith, except maybe on the A-list of singer-songwriters. The Texas-bred pop-folk-country performer's show Tuesday night at the Coach House ranged from stately pop anthems extolling peace and brotherhood (or decrying lack of same), to folk-tinged reveries about past times lost or recaptured, to a fun-loving hillbilly stomp through the normally somber Rolling Stones number "No Expectations."

The Scene: BMI's Pop Awards Dinner at the Regent Beverly Wilshire on Tuesday. The annual black-tie gala honors the songwriters and music publishers whose songs were most performed on American TV and radio between October, 1990 and September, 1991. BMI (like competitor ASCAP) is in the business of collecting the royalties for that play. One veteran joked that the initials, which represent Broadcast Music Inc., actually stand for "Brings More Income."
