Bassist Pat Senatore is a youthful 61-year-old who has played a ton of good music in his life. Among his ace associations: Stan Kenton's Orchestra, Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass, the V.I.P. Trio with Cedar Walton and Billy Higgins, and more than occasional performances with such esteemed jazz men as pianists George Cables, Roger Kellaway and Billy Childs, saxophonists Joe Henderson and Joe Farrell and trumpeter Freddie Hubbard.

The good news is that Pasquale (Pat) Senatore is back in business--and this time under weatherproof conditions, unlike those he had to deal with at the Oceanside Club that bore his name. To musicians, Senatore is best known as a bass player who toured the world with Stan Kenton, Les Brown and, for five years, the Tijuana Brass. But the Southland's public may remember him better as the man who, from 1978 until 1983, owned Pasquale's, overlooking the beach at Malibu.

The fate of Donte's, which was to have reopened as a refurbished jazz club after its recent sale to Japanese businessman Ken Akemoto, is now in doubt. Pat Senatore--hired by Akemoto as musical director--said this week that the businessman told him he'd changed his mind about reopening Donte's and would instead put the property back on the market. Donte's closed April 2 after almost 22 years.

Is everybody down and out in Beverly Hills? If not, how does one explain that the presence Friday at Le Bouvier's Beverly Hills Saloon of Joe Pass, who has packed the great concert halls of the world, attracted half a house? It was not the happiest of occasions for the guitarist, playing the first evening of a two-night stand.

Wilbur Brown is a veteran of the jazz wars who still seems willing and able to fight a few more battles. At 58, his tenor saxophone playing resonates with the powerful energies of nearly five decades of inventive mainstream improvising. Brown was at Legends of Hollywood on Saturday night and the Cat and Fiddle Pub on Sunday--a typical weekend for a player who has had a highly active, but remarkably low profile in the Los Angeles jazz community.
