Conte Candoli and Pete Candoli, trumpet-playing brothers, have been jazz stars since the '40s. But there was no sign of musical wear and tear in their set at Charlie O's Friday night, delivered to an enthusiastic, packed-house crowd. Over the years, Conte--at 73, four years younger than his brother--has been primarily identified as an improvising artist, while Pete has been much admired for his dependable work as a lead trumpeter.

Put two brothers together in a business and bankruptcy may loom on the horizon. Put them together on a bandstand and be prepared to duck the dissonances. So how is it that trumpet-playing freres Pete and Conte Candoli have been hanging out together musically--and apparently amicably--for nearly half a century? "Easy," Pete said. "We have a ball. Believe it or not, there's never been a rough word between us." And, Conte said, "we don't let stylistic differences get in the way."

When the Oak Park Jazz Festival kicks off Saturday, jazz lovers will have paid for more than just a day's worth of musical enjoyment. The event--1:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Oak Park High School--will benefit the Brookside Elementary School performing arts curriculum. The day's lineup includes jazz bands of Simi Valley High School, Pierce College and a group formed by employees of Rocketdyne. Enthusiasts, though, won't want to miss the event's headliner, Joe Vento's All Star Jazz Band.

Wednesday's "Jazz Masters" concert at the Hollywood Bowl provided an object lesson in how the jazz world has been splintered into generational camps. The program, which included a make-shift group of veterans dubbed "The Golden Men of Jazz," and the trios of 87-year-old violinist Stephane Grappelli and bassist Ray Brown, made much of seniority and little of the artistry that carried these performers through their distinguished careers.

Fans of this region's jazz era of the 1950s and '60s had a chance to see and hear some of their favorite players in action Saturday night in "A Jazz West Coast Christmas" at the Hermosa Beach Playhouse. Among the many well-known artists appearing in this seasonal cornucopia were Conte and Pete Candoli, Dave Pell, Jack Montrose, Bob Enevoldsen, Med Flory and Pete Jolly. And, leading the program's three segments were saxophonist Bill Perkins and veteran arranger-composer Pete Rugolo.

The second "Jazz at the Music Center" concert was more successful musically than on the levels of economics, acoustics and organization. There were barely 1,000 paid admissions Friday at the 3,200-capacity Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. Again there were sound problems. Jeannie Cheatham, singing with the Sweet Baby Blues Band co-led by her trombonist husband Jimmy Cheatham, was audible on ballads but battled to be heard on upbeat tunes. However, this entertaining group drew the only standing ovation.

The musical relationship between Stan Kenton and Pete Rugolo paralleled, to some extent, the linkage of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. In both cases, an older, more established bandleader found, and formed an important partnership with, a younger composer who shared a similar musical view. Obviously, the musical results of the Kenton-Rugolo connection were considerably different from the music that flowed from Ellington-Strayhorn.

The first day of the 16th annual Playboy Jazz Festival followed a pattern that has served producer George Wein well in the past. You can be sure that the program will open with an amateur band, usually a good excuse for showing up late. This year it was the Roosevelt High School Ensemble, fair on teamwork but weak on solos (aren't they all?).
