There was a coming out party of sorts at Spaghettini Rotisserie and Grill here Thursday. The occasion, an appearance by Orange County-based keyboardist Peggy Duquesnel, marked the first night of the restaurant's new five-day-a-week jazz policy in its adjoining lounge. In addition, it was also a well-deserved showcase for Duquesnel's compositional skills. The pianist, who's worked for such notables as Leslie Uggams, the Platters and guitarist Phil Upchurch, is familiar to O.C.

Add voice to an instrumental combo and things can suddenly change. The brass immediately become hushed, accompaniment becomes more predictable and the drummer reaches for the brushes. A certain tentativeness permeates the proceedings. But it doesn't have to be that way, as Orange County-based keyboardist Peggy Duquesnel's quartet and singer Julie Kelly proved during the first set Tuesday at Cafe Lido.

There's no doubt that guitarist Dave Murdy's first recording, "That Goes to Show Ya!," is a straight-ahead jazz session, just what the record company asked of him. But within that context, Murdy presents a variety of styles, including blues, boogie, bop and bossa nova, not to mention his own compositions, which have a decidedly contemporary feel. "Yeah, all those things fit into the mainstream thing real well," Murdy said last weekend in a phone conversation from his home in Yorba Linda.

There was a late arrival to Dr. Art Davis' appearance at El Matador on Thursday. No, it wasn't the bassist or any other member of his trio; the missing component was Davis' amplifier. As unusual as it was to hear an upright bassist perform at a venue where electric bass is the instrument of choice, it was even more unlikely that Davis would lead his combo during its first set without amplification for his acoustic bass. Not many would be able to pull it off. But Davis did.

It isn't easy for singers to put their mark on familiar songs and make them their own. But that's exactly what Yve Evans did at Tuesday's first set at the Cafe Lido. During a performance of a half-dozen jazz and pop standards, Evans applied a clear, supple tone and a clever sense of phrasing to put her brand on such overdone numbers as "When I Fall in Love" and "Satin Doll."

Orange County jazz fans are fortunate. The opportunities to hear and see a diverse range of what's nowadays considered jazz--performances ranging from sizzling, beat-heavy fusion sessions to foot-stomping Dixieland revivals--overshadow those of other West Coast metropolitan areas, places that claim to be jazz hot spots (take that , San Francisco, Portland and Seattle). Let's take a minute and count those blessings.
