Orange County public television station KOCE-TV Channel 50 completed its most successful membership drive ever on Sunday, raising $295,431 according to a preliminary estimate, station spokeswoman Judith Schaefer said Monday. The response to the 18-day campaign was attributed to special programming that included a taped concert by New-Age singer Yanni, as well as to a one-day extension of the spring drive, Schaefer said.

There was a time when the fusion of two musical fields was a bold adventure. In the 1950s, Gunther Schuller did it with jazz and atonal music; the '60s gave us Miles Davis and jazz-rock; Philip Glass did it in the '70s with rock and Minimalism. Today, the fusion of musical styles is no longer bold or even adventuresome. In fact, new-age musicians are routinely crossbreeding music to the extent that today's purists might be accused of living in the past.

Without hesitation, I excitedly snatched up "The Complete Billie Holiday on Verve 1949-1959." And then I read that bizarre review by Feather of the undisputed genius of jazz who altered the entire concept of singing at age 18 and miraculously sang even better as the years went on. Once Lady Day sang a song, it was hers and hers alone. I've seen a myriad of books containing endless sketches and doodles by Picasso that the world finds merit in, and I'm still in awe of a deteriorating Parthenon and a less-than-perfect Sphinx.
