Judge Carl W. Bacharach, an associate judge of the District Court of Maryland for Baltimore, died of a heart attack yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was 69.Remembered by a colleague on the bench as "a very compassionate person who loved his fellow man and hated man's inhumanity against man," Judge Bacharach died about 6:30 a.m. yesterday during emergency heart surgery."He had had three heart bypass operations in the past, but I guess they just couldn't pull off the miracle a fourth time," said Judge Martin A. Kircher of the District Court for Baltimore.

LeRoy L. Gamse, a retired chairman of the board of Gamse Lithographing Co. Inc., a longtime family-owned and -operated business in Baltimore, died of complications from heart disease Sunday at Roland Park Place. The former Lutherville resident was 93. He immersed himself in the label-manufacturing business for his entire working life - with an interruption during World War II - serving as chairman and vice president. "He not only was successful in the time that he ran it, he left a very good foundation for the next generation," said Dan Canzoniero, the owner and president who bought the company from the Gamse family.

Judge Carl W. Bacharach, a former member of the House of Delegates whose 28 years as a Baltimore judge made him the senior member of the Maryland District Court, died of a heart attack yesterday at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He was 69.An ally of the late Northwest Baltimore political boss James H. "Jack" Pollack, Judge Bacharach first ran for office as a 28-year-old lawyer and won the first of his three terms as a delegate. In 1962, he decided to move from the legislative branch of government to the lowest rung on the judiciary and with the backing of the Pollack machine won election to Baltimore's old People's Court.

In a fuchsia shirt and color-coordinated tie, Cockeysville metal- smith David Paul Bacharach cheerfully holds court in his prime corner booth at the American Craft Fair in the Convention Center.He greets a friend with a peck on the cheek while meticulously arranging earrings in a glass case and describing to another visitor the melting pot of influences found in his work. Such finesse comes readily to Mr. Bacharach, one of the godfathers of the national crafts craze.He was there in 1965, when New England artisans converged in a Vermont ski resort to sell their wares.

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Composer Burt Bacharach has won three Academy Awards and numerous Grammys, so it may be hard to believe his songwriting career was interrupted by a horse.But in 1983, he was obsessed by his filly Heartlight No. One."I was caught up in her career," Bacharach said. "Too caught up in it, and I quit writing music for four or five months. Every time she ran she was 1-5 or 1-6 [odds], and there was a lot of pressure."Eleven years later, Soul Of The Matter suddenly has a chance of bringing the songwriter a new thrill: an entry in the Kentucky Derby.

If there's one thing Bacharach Rasin has learned over nearly 90 years in the sporting goods business, it's that survival means adapting to changing times.The hunting guns the store sold in the 1960s aregone. So are the fishing poles. Now, the Severna Park store, part ofthe Baltimore business established in 1904, has taken the last of the tennis rackets and badminton nets off the shelves.It seems that in the recession-plagued 1990s, fewer sports enthusiasts are shelling out money for luxuries like golf, tennis, squash, croquet and racquetball.

Elvis Costello wants you to listen carefully to the beginning of his new album, a collaboration with songwriter Burt Bacharach called "Painted From Memory."It starts with a song called "In the Darkest Place," a song about the despair that can wash over a man abandoned and denied by his lover. But it isn't the melody or lyric Costello wants us to hear - at least, not just yet.Where he wants our focus is on the introduction. "Listen to how appealing, how intriguing the opening notes of the record are," he says.

He may not think so, but Ron Isley has absolutely nothing to prove. After nearly 50 years of mining gold and platinum, the artist known to the hip-hop generation as Mr. Biggs has shown us time and time again that he is one of the most distinctive male vocalists in pop. With a sanctified shout and a crystalline swoop, Isley enchants us with an instrument that sounds more refined today than it did on those old Isley Brothers' records: "Twist & Shout," "It's...

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre's current show -- Promises, Promises -- promised more than it delivers in entertaining contemporary theater. Still, the play is worth seeing because first-rate actors enliven and elevate the dated material. Based on the 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, the play was reworked by Neil Simon and transformed into a 1968 musical by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Although Bacharach's music is generally distinguished by sophisticated, unusual harmonies and syncopated rhythms, and Simon has few peers in creating snappy dialogue, both composer and playwright seem to have become victims of '60s irrelevance.

The Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre folks can hardly miss with their August show selection based on the Billy Wilder-directed 1960 Oscar-winning film The Apartment, which became a 1968 musical, Promises, Promises. The musical was crafted by one of America's favorite and most prolific playwrights, Neil Simon and boasted a musical score by Burt Bacharach, the songwriter whose music all but identifies the 1960s. Like the film, Promises, Promises traces the rise of mild-mannered young accountant C. C. "Chuck" Baxter, who moves up the corporate ladder by lending his well-located midtown Manhattan apartment to middle-aged executives for round-the-clock trysts with young office assistants.

JAMES ROUSE had a dream that one day all people, despite their socioeconomic status, would convene at the community mailbox. His dream has been built into one of the nation's most famous planned communities, Columbia. But Rouse's rosy vision is covered in the thorns of a society where poverty equals immorality, where subsidized housing is disdained by the middle class who dominate the area. Somewhere in the midst of Rouse's dream, fear has enveloped our small town. It is this fear that drives civilians to move outward, away from what they must regard as hateful scenes of the less fortunate, which gives Columbia the characteristics of a miniature city.

THERE'S CHAOS in David Paul Bacharach's metalsmith studio. More so than usually. Oh sure, there's the familiar clutter of metal scraps and wood shavings strewn about the floor, art material piled high against the walls and tools scattered around. These days though, there's an added frenzy. It's less than a week before the 25th annual American Craft Council Craft Show, and dozens of pieces of work - from jewelry and intricately woven copper vessels to chairs, console tables and massive sculptures - are awaiting the Cockeysville artist's final inspection before being shipped off to the Baltimore Convention Center.

They're such unlikely collaborators.On the one hand, there's Elvis Costello, a man who made his name as a viciously verbose new wave star, and whose image was a central symbol in Brett Easton Ellis' novel of nihilistic youth, "Less Than Zero."On the other, there's Burt Bacharach, who came to fame as a '60s pop songwriter, and who was presented as an icon of bachelor-pad sophistication in the Mike Myers movie, "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery."At first glance, they seem worlds apart.

There was a time, not very long ago, when being thrilled at the prospect of a Burt Bacharach concert was tantamount to confessing to utter fogeyism.Granted, the man wrote some great songs: "Do You Know the Way to San Jose." "I'll Never Fall in Love Again." "(They Long to Be) Close to You." "Promises Promises." "Walk On By." "I Say a Little Prayer." "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me." "This Guy's In Love with You." His list of hits could be a Top-40 in itself.Even so, it would be hard to imagine an all-star special like "Bacharach: One Amazing Night" (which airs tomorrowon TNT)
