Police were looking for a motive for a shooting spree in which a man opened fire with an assault rifle in a quiet neighborhood in Edmond, killing one man and critically wounding another before being killed by police. Authorities said it was a random act of violence. They said 44-year-old Ralph Meyer fatally shot Stephen J. Scott, 54, as he was working in his backyard and wounded 61-year-old George Polifka, who had been swimming in his pool.

Buster Williams, who appeared at the Jazz Bakery during the weekend with his own trio, is a bassist with countless credits as sideman, leader and accompanist to singers. Limber fingered, with a dark, rich tone, Williams leaves no doubt about his technical virtuosity. On Friday, his solos involved the full range of the instrument, occasional chording and moments of walking bass for contrast.

A federal grand jury in Los Angeles issued a two-count indictment Friday against a Cypress College employee in connection with a series of counterfeit $20 bills he is accused of making at the college print shop. The indictment alleged that Stephen Scott Sebastian, 24, of Garden Grove, manufactured and possessed $49,000 in $20 bills. He was arrested June 5 by Secret Service agents, who seized the fake bills at the print shop and at Sebastian's home.

SONNY ROLLINS "Sonny Rollins +3" ** 1/2 Milestone Sonny Rollins in performance with a trio is a promising notion, an arena that is open yet supportive enough to allow his improvisational skills on the saxophone to take wing. But what might have been a sterling outing is largely betrayed by his rhythm sections, which offer meager foundations for soloing. Bob Cranshaw's walking electric bass generates little propulsive energy, and Al Foster's drums sound noisy and out of touch.

James E. Shaw erroneously portrays recording companies as modern-day slave owners ["Musicians Should Voice Outrage," Letters, June 16]. Is it really productive to regularly characterize persons of color as existing only one step above indentured servants, while being kept on "the plantation?" The artists mentioned, Mary Wells and Jackie Wilson, were certainly able to purchase their own health insurance and retirement programs, but chose to spend their money elsewhere. Mr. Shaw apparently believes in paternalism, and that entertainers require ongoing care from their industry because they are unable to care for themselves.

Joe Henderson's death on June 30 at age 64 did not come as a surprise. For months, even years, his reportedly fragile health had been a topic of concern to many in the jazz community. Conversations with friends in San Francisco, where he lived, inevitably included the question, "Have you seen Joe? How's he doing?" and almost equally inevitably elicited the response, "I'm not sure, but he didn't look good the last time I saw him."
