On Sunday night at the Painted Bride Art Center, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano proved that comfort level is the difference between high-concept and gimmickry. Playing selections from the self-explanatory Viva Caruso, Lovano's quirky Street Band, which closed the Mellon Jazz Festival, never once forced the issue. In the truest spirit of improvisation, the group used Enrico Caruso-related selections as the jumping-off point for variations, creating not only unexpected solos but also an ensemble sound that responded to the demands of the moment.

Embrace of the Serpent Ciro Guerra's profoundly beautiful black-and-white film, set in the forests of Colombia, follows two explorers from the West - German ethnographer Theodor Koch-Grunberg in 1909 and American biologist Richard Evans Schultes in 1940 - as each encounters a shaman, the last of his tribe, in the quest for a rare plant. One of this year's Academy Award nominees for best foreign-language film. No MPAA rating Miles Ahead Don Cheadle stars in, and directs, this impressionistic take on Miles Davis, zooming in on the years in the latter half of the '70s when the jazz trumpeter and composer went AWOL, ceasing to tour and pretty much stopping recording, too. Ewan McGregor is the hustling journalist determined to find out what's up. The movie tries hard to jettison the usual music biopic cliches and doesn't entirely succeed, but Cheadle is mesmerizing.

Senior Zina Robbins-Maldonado tossed a three-inning no-hitter to lead Friends Select past host Morrisville, 15-0, in Friday's nonleague softball matchup. But the highlight of the game for Robbins-Maldonado would come on a leadoff triple in the top of the second inning which earned her the school's all-time hits record with 125. On the mound, she finished the afternoon with eight strikeouts and only one walk. Elsewhere in nonleague action: Megan Johnson went 4 for 4 with four RBIs in Pennridge's 7-5 triumph over host Truman.

By Rebecca Love Kourlis In the wake of Justice Michael Eakin's resignation from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Gov. Wolf will need to appoint a successor to fill the vacancy. I would like to suggest that he has an ideal opportunity to fulfill that responsibility in a way designed to restore public confidence in the judicial branch. Pennsylvania elects its judges and justices. However, Pennsylvania lawmakers are currently considering a constitutional amendment that would replace contested elections of appellate judges with commission-based gubernatorial appointment.

The judge hearing the criminal case against Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Tuesday urged her to make public any argument that she had been selectively targeted for prosecution. Kane has asked for permission to file court papers under seal in Montgomery County arguing that she is a victim of "vindictive" and selective prosecution. Suggesting that she is caught between two courts, she has said a Philadelphia judge has indicated that she would violate a court order by bringing such an argument publicly.
