Over the years, the brash young kid has become a respectful student of history, even a teacher. On a recent day in Arizona, while most of his teammates were watching the Masters in the visiting clubhouse, Matt Kemp sat by himself in an adjacent room taking in a documentary about Jackie Robinson . "As I get older, I want to learn more," Kemp said. "Growing up, I knew about Jackie Robinson, but I didn't know about the significance of it the way I do now. " Kemp spoke at length Monday about Robinson's impact before the Dodgers celebrated Jackie Robinson Day at Dodger Stadium.

Some snoozed and some closed their eyes, but most of the 200 men who packed the Union Rescue Mission's main hall Thursday gave a rousing reception to noted cellist Sharon Robinson, of New York's Pro Musicis. Robinson, who played selections from Rachmaninoff and other classical composers, asked whether anyone in the audience would like to comment on the music, and one homeless man asked if she would play something "pizzicato"--or by plucking.

The anniversary is No. 66, which, although not particularly special numerically, feels more celebratory this year with the release of the film “42.” That would be “42,” the story of Jackie Robinson integrating baseball and changing America, and also the No. 1 movie in the nation last week. On Monday, baseball celebrates Jackie Robinson Day again, with all players wearing No. 42, but the main focus remains with the team Robinson broke in with, the Dodgers. His widow, Rachel Robinson, daughter Sharon, and son David, are to be in attendance at Dodger Stadium for the festivities.

The trio comprising pianist Joseph Kalichstein, violinist Jaime Laredo and cellist Sharon Robinson is hardly a stranger to these parts, as attested by the large, clearly partisan audience present in the Leo S. Bing Theater of the L.A. County Museum of Art on Wednesday.

Now, two new books are appearing to celebrate Jackie Robinson. His widow, Rachel Robinson, has written "Jackie Robinson: An Intimate Portrait." The other, by his daughter, Sharon, is titled "Stealing Home: An Intimate Family Portrait." To judge them fairly, you do best to keep the subtitles in mind. With the help of journalist Lee Daniels and an editor, Rachel has produced a beautifully illustrated book, full of touching and poignant moments.

Leonard Cohen, 78, jogged onto the stage of Nokia Theatre like he'd run in from the parking lot. The singer-poet, wearing a hand-tailored suit, a bolo tie strung around a cleanly pressed shirt and a black fedora, stood before the microphone to begin with “Dance Me to the End of Love” at precisely 8 p.m. Surrounding him was a six-piece band that included not only bass, percussion and keyboards, but a three-man string army that offered texture via...

A glance at the program--after frantically trying to get through the Convention Center's rodeo overruns and Grand Prix roadblocks--might suggest that the Long Beach Symphony had offered Wagnerian bookends Saturday at the Terrace Theater. Wrong. Hagen's "Fire Music," the curtain raiser, had nothing whatever to do with "The Ring."
