Flashing a "thumbs-up" sign, producer Nick Vanoff called it "one of the country's great benefits." Comic Jackie Mason (a little tired from his early morning shooting schedule for "Caddyshack II") loved it--"This is one terrific show."

Leading a first-rate quintet at the Old Dana Point Cafe, St. Marseille employed good taste, calling choice tunes, and on these selections offering a series of superior improvisations in the be-bop and post be-bop traditions.

The posh Civic Theater, which has housed the San Diego Symphony among other attractions for the last two decades, was dark Thursday night. The marquee heralded an upcoming rock concert.

It hasn't bubbled up seemingly from nowhere. It hasn't sneaked into town.

Smartly dressed in a gray suit, blouse and heels, she strolled down the street, entered a restaurant and sank into a booth for a bowl of soup. At 57, Patti Page--the recording star of a few decades ago--seems to have aged gracefully, yet few heads turned. Too bad she hadn't been humming "Tennessee Waltz," "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window," "Mockin' Bird Hill" or any of her other major hits of yesteryear. Heads would've turned then for certain.
