It was the kind of pleasant weather that makes us want to shout, to kick up our heels or, like 4-year-old Carolynn Dussell of South Philadelphia, to sit among the dandelions in FDR Park and blow our horn. Look for more of the same today.

Deregulation of electricity has no detrimental effect on jazz. How else to explain the aurora borealis that lit up the finale of the 10th annual Peco Energy Jazz Festival on Sunday? The Roy Hargrove sextet's opening, 65-minute set gave honor to the word mainstream. Hargrove, 27, spoke not a word to the Annenberg Theater audience except to introduce his bandmates at the end. But his velvet tone on flugelhorn and trumpet spoke volumes. Hargrove, trombonist Ku-Umbwa Frank Lacy and alto saxophonist Sherman Irbey all made memorable forays and peppered each others' solos with sympathetic back-up licks.

The horn is an instrument constrained by tradition and usage. Its role has been in hunting fanfares in earlier music and in long, soulful melodies in 19th-century works. The instrument has had trouble breaking out of these molds, but some recent records show efforts to find new identities. Richard Todd, young hornist who has played in orchestras but is now a free- lance musician based in California, has recorded music by Gunther Schuller, Erik Szekely, Charlie Parker, Jean Francaix and others (GM 2010)

Saxophonist John Doughten has been playing jazz for most of his 60 years. He's appeared all around the Philadelphia area in one group or another, as well as in Delaware and on Maryland's Eastern Shore. And a lot of people, including noted pianist Eddie Higgins, think Doughten is a pretty hot horn player. Last night, Doughten began a three-day engagement at Deetrick's Cafe & Bar, a new jazz spot in Jenkintown. Never heard of him? "Well, I never played professionally on a full-time basis," he said.

Nolan Miller, 73, of Haddonfield, whose ultrarefined sound led the legendarily blended French horn section of the Philadelphia Orchestra for several decades, died Sunday, April 7, at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He had been battling leukemia and died of a stroke, said his wife, Marjorie. Mr. Miller joined the orchestra as coprincipal horn upon graduation from the Curtis Institute of Music in 1965 and assumed the principal horn spot in the 1978-79 season. He retired from the orchestra after four decades, in 2005.

The Hancock Chamber Players made a compelling case for the unusual on Saturday. The ensemble, which played in an intimate room at Abington Friends Meeting in Jenkintown, consists of oboist Lisa Kozenko, hornist Martin Webster and pianist Dana Burnett. This improbable combination doesn't enjoy a wide repertory. The trio, then, didn't program a performance as much as it cooked up one. What the musicians served the audience proved successful in every sense: three tasteful and skillfully crafted transcriptions for horn, oboe and piano; two gems, rescued from obscurity, for solo instruments and piano; and one group of three solo piano pieces by Debussy.

It is jarring to think that tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins is 69 years old. A mythic improviser, he has long defined athleticism on the horn, taking it to places that no one else could reach. Rollins cannot quite soar as he used to. At Glenside's Keswick Theatre on Saturday, he spent more time honking on one note a la Gene Ammons. His solos were briefer than in recent years, and he relied substantially on shaking his hips to convey his overall ardor. But if Rollins is grayer than before, so, perhaps, are his fans.

Enclosed is a sketch of an elk horn corkscrew. I'd appreciate any information you could give me about it and if you know who might want to buy it. I believe that you have what is known as a sideboard corkscrew, often presented as a gift at the turn of the century, and placed on the dining room sideboard. Generally decorated with silver, they sell for from $100 to $250. From your drawing it is impossible to tell the quality of yours. A photograph would have been better.

Conductor? Premier horn player? Barry Tuckwell says he stands with one foot on the podium - but without loosening his grip on the cantankerous instrument with which he has made an international career. When he appears tonight with the Concerto Soloists Chamber Orchestra at the Academy of Music, he will be working in both worlds. Even getting that one foot on the box represents a major step for the 57- year-old Tuckwell; for the musical public tends to insist on its heroes playing only a single role.

One side benefit of the construction of the massive retail-and-residential East Market project is that it has opened up views (temporarily, anyway) of the tightly packed commercial blocks between 11th and 12th Streets. For the first time in decades, you can clearly make out the colorful terra-cotta details on 15 S. 11th St., once a flagship location for the Horn & Hardart restaurant chain. The ornate, five-story structure was designed and built in 1912 by William Steele & Sons, the go-to developer of the day, on commission for Horn & Hardart.

Jules Horning is the last line of defense now. But for years - in soccer and lacrosse - the Conestoga senior goaltender waited in line alongside other talented goalies for the Lady Pioneers. This season, however, the responsibility for both has been Horning's alone. "Being the last line of defense," said Horning, who will play at Marquette next year, "it is hard sometimes, but I think it's helped me become stronger mentally. " Perhaps that strength helped Horning late in Conestoga's victory against Archbishop Carroll in Monday's highly anticipated matchup.

It's a safe bet the only thing standing between children and their ability to absorb the most challenging art is the adult with a limited imagination. There was no danger of that happening Sunday at the Curtis Institute of Music, where a new production of The Jungle Book emerged from the pen of a group of grown-ups with an enormous sense of regard for their audience. What's more, the 45-minute ballet with a stunning small-ensemble score and crisply told story is an absolute charmer.

There never has been any question about the speed and skill of Salaam and A'Laam Horne. Much to their chagrin, there now is no doubt about the twins' toughness, either. That's because the seniors for the St. Joseph football team have both battled their way through injuries this season, refusing to miss a game despite playing at times "on one leg each," according to coach Paul Sacco. "At their best this year, they've been maybe at 80 percent [of full health]," Sacco said. "But they've been pretty good at 80 percent.

Five years ago, Miguel Horn returned to Philadelphia after living and working in Mexico as the assistant to acclaimed sculptor Javier Marin. An ambitious artist with Colombian and Venezuelan roots whose vision spans multiple communities and continents, Horn finds himself today, at 31, at a crossroads and immersed in determining the direction of his career. While public-art commissions punctuate his practice as a sculptor, he balances his portfolio with individual sculptures that express his inner psyche.

There's a simple mathematical reason why the Horne twins have been so influential on the South Jersey football scene: There are two of them. That's true in the obvious sense of the double-barreled impact the St. Joseph seniors have on opponents - all those yards, all those touchdowns, all those big plays, times two. But that's also true in the strict sense of the brothers' ability to bring out the best in each other. "Other kids don't have what we have," Salaam Horne said of himself and his younger (by 22 minutes)

EARTH CITY, Mo. - Jeff Fisher took the St. Louis Rams' head-coaching job 3 1/2 years ago largely because of Sam Bradford. He could have gone to Miami and coached the Dolphins. Tampa Bay and Jacksonville also were knocking on his door. But he wanted to coach Bradford. "The reason I took this job and came here, there were two reasons," Fisher told the Daily News. "One was to work for [Rams owner] Stan Kroenke. The other was because of Sam. Because of the respect I had for him. "Before I took the job, I talked to several people close to me in the business, one being Mike Shanahan and the other being Mike Martz.

NEW YORK - There is no handy manual for when a major league manager should take out his starting pitcher, so the men who make the decisions must do so more on feel and gut than any strict guidelines. Jacob deGrom, reigning National League Rookie of the Year, didn't look like a pitcher anywhere near ready to leave the playing premises of Citi Field when he wrapped up his seventh inning of work against the Phillies last night. He retired 21 of the 24 batters he faced, nine via strikeout.
