For Anaheim composer Ric Flauding's "Refuge" album, the road to record-store shelves has taken more than a few twists and turns. Flauding admits that the slow pace has been frustrating--more than 2 years between the time he started recording and the album's release last month. But he says it was worth the wait: "Refuge" seems to be taking off, getting regular airplay on 125 stations across the country, including jazz-oriented KKGO-FM (105.1) and new-age KWVE-FM (94.7) in Los Angeles.

Orange County jazz fans know Peggy Duquesnel for her strong keyboard work, heard often in these parts with the bands of saxophonist Wayne Wayne, guitarist Ric Flauding, or the group N'Color as well as during appearances under her own name. What's less known about the 31-year-old musician is that, in addition to being a fine keyboard technician and improviser, she's also a promising composer.

Saxophonist Daniel Jackson unveiled his Real Jazz Band last New Year's Eve at Croce's, but the real news in Jackson's career didn't come until last month. It happened when fluegelhorn player Art Farmer was in town to work Elario's, and the club's talent coordinator asked Jackson to play a tenor sax for the dates. Just one problem. Jackson didn't own a tenor, and hadn't played one in more than 15 years.

Trumpeter Harry (Sweets) Edison, who opened at Elario's Wednesday night, cemented his already formidable reputation during the '40s as a featuring soloist with the Count Basie Orchestra. Rooted in the swing of the '30s and '40s, Edison's solos made such classic Basie tunes as "Panassie Stomp," "Jive at Five," "Shorty George," "Texas Shuffle" and "Moten Swing."

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.

On a sweltering summer evening, where else would you want to be than your friendly neighborhood park? Imagine it. Perched on a lawn chair you watch the kids fling linguine at each other while you work your way through a picnic dinner--soothed by the sounds of live jazz.
