Pianist Milcho Leviev, the a cappella vocal group Terra Nova and the New Age-ish Mulholland Drive are among the jazz artists donating their services Tuesday at At My Place. The L.A. Jazz Fix concert is a benefit for Can-Do, an organization designed to help the homeless help themselves. "One-third of the homeless can change their circumstances if they just get a little help, not a hand-out," said Can-Do president Maureen Fagan.

It was probably appropriate that a performance by the Dave Brubeck Quartet was the climax of the International Assn. for Jazz Education's 29th annual conference Friday night at the Long Beach Convention Center's Terrace Theater.

Jazz pianist Vernell Brown Jr. was only 18 when he recorded "A Total Eclipse," his 1990 debut album. There he was, playing alongside such illustrious veterans as saxophonist Ernie Watts, bassist Marcus Miller, drummer Stix Hooper and trumpeter and A&M Records co-founder Herb Alpert. This was some heavy company for any young musician. But the record was designed to introduce listeners to Brown's playing and his already broad range of musical interests.
