The last person Patti Austin wanted to see was Judy Garland. It was the early '60s, and the singer-songwriter, a precocious 13-year-old at the time, was at the Newport Jazz Festival with her parents and godfather, the illustrious Quincy Jones. The bandleader-producer urged the girl to check out Garland's set. Reluctantly, she did, and the aspiring young artist was forever changed. "Her voice sounded like it had been dragged behind a truck for 20 miles on a rope," Austin says of the legendary Garland.

Jon Garland might have signed a longer contract for more money next year. But that didn't matter to him. The Chicago White Sox pitcher agreed to a three-year, $29 million contract yesterday with the 2005 World Series champions and avoided salary arbitration. "I love the city," Garland, 26, said during a conference call with reporters. "It's where I wanted to play, where I wanted to be. And I'm happy to be there." The right-hander who was eligible to become a free agent after the 2006 season, will receive $7 million next year, $10 million in 2007 and $12 million in 2008, according to the White Sox. Chicago and its fans certainly do. He went 18-10 with a 3.50 ERA and led the American League with three shutouts last season with the White Sox. He threw three complete games and struck out 115 in 32 starts.
