One night earlier this week, guitarist Ron Anthony could be found tuning his custom-made D'Angelico in the downstairs lounge at Chadney's restaurant, across the street from the NBC-TV studios. In a tiny room that holds fewer than 80 people, he was working with singer-keyboardist Patrick Tuzzolino, who opened with a relaxed, undemanding vocal version of "Route 66" that seemed just right for the laid-back atmosphere.

Guitarist John Pisano's weekly guitar nights at Spazio have become one of the Southland's most dependable jazz destinations. Every Tuesday, a different guitarist joins Pisano on the venue's intimate stage, sometimes romping through the blues, sometimes digging into straight-ahead jazz, occasionally exploring the heavier timbres of rock and fusion. With veteran guitarist Ron Anthony in the guest chair on Tuesday, the mood became laid-back and swinging.

Ron Anthony was 15 and living in Homewood, Pa., the first time he picked up a guitar. The feeling, he said, was magical. "I started to play it immediately," said Anthony, who now resides in Burbank. "I knew this was what I had to do with my life." Anthony, who plays tonight at Monteleone's West, has gone on to have a successful career as a guitarist, racking up two very prestigious positions along the way: working in George Shearing's quintet, and with Frank Sinatra.

All future bookings (including shows this weekend by longtime Frank Sinatra and George Shearing guitarist Ron Anthony) have been canceled.

The decibel intensity of the rock group playing in the Bonaventure Hotel Friday night echoed through the vast lobby at near-pain levels. For jazz fans in search of the third annual John Pisano Jazz Guitar Festival, it was, to say the least, an unnerving welcome. Fortunately, once inside the crowded confines of the Bonaventure Brewing Company, the sounds changed dramatically--from eardrum-shattering electric guitar feedback to the more caressing qualities of jazz guitar.

There was a celebratory feeling in the air Monday night at Rocco's in Bel-Air. John Pisano's guitar nights always seem to draw a full house, but the advance word that Herb Ellis was appearing, and that he would be offering a kind of farewell performance, brought out an overflow crowd. The evening actually began with a two-guitar set featuring Barry Zweig and Ron Anthony accompanied by bassist Chuck Berghofer.

And the prospects seemed even more questionable when one became aware that the owner, Rocco Somazzi, was--at the time--a 27-year-old Swiss Italian with very little experience in the restaurant business.

There's an old line about life here on Earth, the planet that serves as home to Frank Sinatra: "It's Frank's world. We just live in it." When vocalist Jack Wood convenes his weekly jazz party on Thursday night at Kikuya in Huntington Beach, he'll have a slice of that world at his back.
