The past year has been a momentous one for composer and pianist Peter Delano. First came his eight-album deal with Verve Records and the release of his debut recording, with a band that features saxophonists Michael Brecker and Gary Bartz. Then he posed for British GQ magazine in a hip Jasper Conran designer jacket and shirt. Next month, he has a showcase performance in his hometown of New York City. And to cap it all off, today he turns 17.

Perhaps the spontaneous invention of music taps a part of the brain that matures more slowly than the part that directs the articulation of written music. Or perhaps the mysteries of jazz are just more fundamentally elusive.

I was delighted to see Don Heckman's excellent article about the Joshua Redman/Sergio Salvatore/Jack Elliott presentations at USC as part of the American Express Gold Card Grammy Festival ("These Teachers Are Music to Students' Ears," Nov. 10). I know from experience that the youngsters who were fortunate enough to attend that event really appreciated their exposure to jazz. Last summer we touched more than 50 youngsters from all over Los Angeles County during six weeks of free master classes at the Music Center.

"Who's the teacher here?" whispered a surprised listener who casually wandered into a Master Class at USC's Bovard Auditorium Tuesday afternoon. It was a little hard to tell. On stage, young jazz tenor saxophone whiz Joshua Redman, 22, and even younger jazz piano prodigy Sergio Salvatore, 13, were offering bits and pieces of professional advice to a few hundred university and high school students.

* * * Sergio Salvatore, "Tune Up," GRP. Salvatore's first album, recorded when he was 12, marked the remarkable arrival of a prodigal new jazz pianist. Now 13, his second outing iseven more of a revelation. That Salvatore can swing hard is stunningly apparent on pieces such as "Autumn Leaves" and "Au Privave." Even more impressive is the subtlety of his dynamic touch on ballads--especially "Almost Home" and "Over the Rainbow"--and a bristling duet with Chick Corea on "Sea Journey."

Tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman, one of the leading figures on the modern jazz scene, and pianist Sergio Salvatore, the 13-year-old wunderkind, arrive in town next week in unusual circumstances: Instead of being featured in a small group context, the artists appear with the 75-piece American Jazz Philharmonic. The free program, which takes place Tuesday at 8 p.m. at USC's Bovard Auditorium, finds Redman employing his gusty tenor tone on John Clayton's "Three Shades of Blue."
