When Paul A. Orduna joined the Los Angeles City Fire Department, isolation was as much a part of his job as fighting fires. "Every day I would go to work, and nobody would talk to me--except the captain to give me orders. If I walked in a room, (other firefighters) would walk out. "Right from the first day they took me in the office and told me, 'Bring your own pots and pans. You have to cook your own food and eat after every one else has eaten.' " The year was 1957.

Pacific Standard Time will explore the origins of the Los Angeles art world through museum exhibitions throughout Southern California over the next six months. Times art reviewer Sharon Mizota has set the goal of seeing all of them. This is her latest report. If you suffer from PST fatigue (PST-igue?), “Trouble in Paradise: Music and Los Angeles, 1945-1975” at the Grammy Museum may be the antidote. This small but engaging show covers the same era as other PST exhibitions, but through a decidedly different lens.

My father's trumpet came out on Saturday at dusk after he finished the lawn work--along with the wooden music stand holding finger-worn sheets of Bach, Mozart and Miles Davis' "Sketches of Spain.' He always bowed his head and ruffled the keys before playing. Sometimes his music sounded tired, like he got some days, but mostly it was golden: "The Shadow of Your Smile' and Bach's "Joy' phrased in low, guttural notes that he seemed to be playing only for himself.
