From one angle, trombonist/composer/computer programmer/pedagogue George Lewis could be perceived as a case of a jazz musician who crossed over. In the '70s and '80s, Lewis was involved in the Chicago-based jazz amalgam known as the AACM, the Assn. for the Advancement of Creative Music, and a member in good standing of the transatlantic free improvisation community, playing with Derek Bailey, John Zorn and countless others.

Pleased with what he called the "best opening meet I've had in years," Carl Lewis tied George Brown's 1950-52 record of 41 consecutive long-jump wins with a leap of 28 feet in the Houston Invitational. Lewis' jump was made before fewer than 1,000 fans at Robertson Stadium. But Lewis, who took all of his six attempts in preparing for the Pepsi Invitational at UCLA May 18, said: "It's better than a bunch of booing people at the (Los Angeles) Coliseum."

There have been some great comedy teams on television--Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, George Burns and Gracie Allen, Chris Schenkel and Nelson Burton Jr. None of these were as funny as Chick Hearn and Al LoCasale were on the Ram-Raider telecast. I sure hope they are paired again because that was really funny stuff. CHUCK HILL Van Nuys

More arts and entertainment coverage on the Web. MOVIES A Day-Lewis vs. Clooney bout? Uncertainty is in the air as the race of all races heats up. No, we're not talking about the 2008 presidential primaries -- we're talking about the 80th annual Academy Awards! Yes, indecision reigns, but this much seems certain: This year's best actor race looks like a knock-down-drag-out between Daniel Day-Lewis and George Clooney. More at the Notes on a Season blog at TheEnvelope.com. MUSIC How the electric guitar became king The birth of rock 'n' roll is not only a weighty subject for a film, but one in which myth takes precedence over fact.

Since its Broadway debut in 1943, "Oklahoma!" has been performed steadily around the world. The production on stage now at the La Habra Depot Playhouse is another successful attestation to the folksy power of this ever-popular musical. "Oklahoma!" was the first collaborative effort of America's most celebrated musical-comedy team, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein.

The great ideals of academia seldom find their parallels in the real life of the academics themselves. It's a truth that Richard Nelson spears mercilessly in "Some Americans Abroad," his play about American professors in England now in a San Diego area premiere at the North Coast Repertory Theatre through May 23. The piece had its U.S. debut at New York's Lincoln Center Theatre in 1990.

In the days leading to Saturday's football season opener between Ventura College and Moorpark, Ventura Coach George Rosales promised a competitive contest. He must have been thinking of some other game. Moorpark destroyed hapless Ventura, 41-6, rolling up 389 yards of offense while limiting the Pirates to 144 in the Western State Conference interdivisional game. The Raiders have now won eight consecutive times against their county rivals. In that span, Moorpark has outscored Ventura, 298-46.
