It's easy to understand why so many critics and listeners consider Grover Washington Jr. to be the father of jazz-pop saxophone. Back when David Sanborn was just another session player and Kenny G was still just Kenny Gorelick, Washington was enjoying Top-10 success through albums like "Mister Magic" and "Feels So Good."But ask Washington (who is scheduled to take the stage at 8 p.m. as the headliner of tomorrow's BLAZZ Blues and Jazz Festival at Pier Six) if he thinks of himself in such paternal terms, and his reaction verges on incredulity.

The sight of two dozen matinee ladies, and one gentleman, dancing with the cast in a conga line on stage makes it hard to deny that "Five Guys Named Moe," which opened yesterday at the Morris A. Mechanic Theatre, puts the spring back in Louis Jordan's jump blues.Created by Clarke Peters and directed and choreographed by Charles Augins, this celebration of the late Jordan's music began as a little revue in a London fringe theater in 1990. Mega-producer Cameron Mackintosh saw it and decided to produce it, first on London's West End, where it is still running, and then on Broadway.

When did rock and roll really begin?That's not an easily answered question. There are some who take a creationist view, and claim it all started in 1954 with Elvis Presley's first Sun single, "That's All Right." Most critics, however, take an evolutionary view, and insist that rock was rolling well before Presley; for them, records like Jackie Brentson's 1951 hit "Rocket 88" or Roy Brown's 1949 raver "Rockin' at Midnight" would seem more likely starting points.Wherever the line is drawn, it's clear that rock and roll didn't just turn up on the doorstep one morning, fully formed and ready to raise a ruckus.

FIVE DECADES after the big band industry faded away, America is dancing to swing again. But instead of Benny Goodman or Artie Shaw, the bandstands feature the likes of Royal Crown Revue, Cherry Poppin' Daddies and Brian Setzer.The Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey ghost bands still entertain the geriatric set on tours and ocean cruises. Contemporary zoot-suiters and bobby-soxers, though, prefer a jumpier style, one that mixes rock with Count Basie and Louis Jordan.This retro-swing movement started on the West Coast nearly a decade ago. This year, thanks to MTV and a Gap commercial, the craze hit the East Coast in a big way.The composition of a retro-swing orchestra is not very different from a 1930s big band.
