I have read the article on Robin Elson, and have a tremendous feeling of rage and anger with regard to her neighbors who were so busy watching her husband brutally attack his family but too cowardly to call the police. Had they done so, this woman may have been spared God knows how much cruelty, to say nothing of what her children have suffered. There is no way on earth a jury could have found her guilty, if there is any justice left.

There was a surprisingly small crowd present Sunday at the start of the jazz portion of UCLA's annual Jazz & Reggae Festival at Drake Stadium, given the quality of the program. The contemporary-oriented lineup, including Blay Ambolley's Afrikan Jazz Ensemble, Russell Gunn with DJ Apollo, conguero Francisco Aguabella's Latin Jazz Band and the Emiliano Rodriguez Orchestra, showed a strong world-music orientation, and offered an appealingly diverse collection of sounds.

Watching Ballet British Columbia dance choreography by William Forsythe, Sunday in Glendale High School Auditorium, you might have confused this 5-year-old, 18-dancer ensemble with the far older and larger National Ballet of Canada, a company that also recently visited the Southland.

A piano trio tackling Stravinsky's knotty masterpiece "The Rite of Spring" may sound audacious. But the trio has been here before, delivering a stout take on the composer's "Variation d'Apollon" on the 2009 album "For All I Care.

After 12 years together and 10 albums (including the upcoming "Made Possible," due next week), the members of the piano trio the Bad Plus have always seemed like musicians with simply not enough to do. All jokes aside, the band's members, Ethan Iverson, Reid Anderson and Dave King have made time to work with a variety of collaborators over the years, which in addition to including such names such as Billy Hart and Joshua Redman also feature...
