,2B THE PALM BEACH POST MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1997 s show 3 hours of flavorless music Holiday Call for latest weather iPOPPUfRj conditions, forecasts for 2,000 cities, severe weather warninqs, and on the Internet: DOPPLER 1 2000 radar refreshed every three minutes. But with the possible exception of thenaturally charming Austin, the singers don't know how to convey an honest emotion and it comes through in their plastic renditions. Or even worse, in their between-song banter. To hear Bryson talk about how this is the "most astute" audience he's ever seen is to know he's fed that same line to the folks in Peoria. (Here's hoping that the "astute" audience in Peoria didn't have the bad taste to rush the exits before the final song was finished.) In all, The Colors of Christmas offers music and lots of it. But then, so do K-Tel collections. Without the insincerity. tlety and discretion were in short supply throughout the Saturday-evening performance. The foursome managed to plow every chorus for its melodic explosive-ness, even when the songs ran contrary to such intentions. These were artificial Christmas trees of carols, bathed in the insincere glow of cheap holiday lights. One kept wondering when Kathie Lee Gifford was going to make her entrance with The Little Drummer Boy. Not that the singers don't have voices. Bryson and Ingram are smooth and easy tenors, and Austin is a jazzy diva who deserves a far bigger career than she's had. i By Charles Passy iPulm Beach Post Arts Writer f: WEST PALM BEACH When the holiday season meets jlije FM, the result can only mean one thing: The Colors of Christ-Tnlas. I'll That's the name of a popular t2ur program that's made its way from arts center to arts center since its inception a few years ago. 5 The Kravis Center brought it back ticjr the fourth straight year this past weekend. V' The idea is music and lots of it. ;JThis year's edition featured four Csuigers: Peabo Bryson, Sheena jfejston, James Ingram and Patti 'vAustin, accompanied by a Vegas-jstyle orchestra and the Ebony Morale, a local gospel group. It te&nslated to three hours of chest- Concert review nuts being roasted in an open fire. But they're chestnuts of a particular sort The quartet's repertoire includes holiday favorites Joy to the World and 0 Come All Ye Faithful as well as their own hits such as Easton's For Your Eyes Only, Bryson's Can You Stop the Rain? and Austin and Ingram's Baby Come Home to Me. But the music and arrangements have a very specific quality: It's soul and R&B put through the spin cycle of pop. In other words, it's the mostly flavorless fare you'll hear on one of those lite FM stations. And it's fare that inevitably inspires singers to oversing.

Three men jumped into the water to save themselves after the 23-foot boat they were on exploded about 100 yards from the boat ramp at the Boynton Inlet about 5 p.m. Sunday, Palm Beach County sheriffs deputy John Ledford said. The owner of the boat, Donald Kania, 38, of Boynton Beach, and passengers Glaze Felton, of Lake Worth, and Jimmy Herrell, address unknown, were in the boat to go snapper fishing when they heard popping noises from the engine just before it exploded. A nearby fisherman pulled the men from the water. Felton complained of minor ankle pain and was transported by Boynton Beach Fire-Rescue to Bethesda Memorial Hospital, Ledford said. The 1973 Chris-Craft boat's motor appears to have had a fuel or electrical malfunction, Ledford said. The fire, which had flames as high as 30 feet, destroyed the fishing boat. MakotnogflLL HOW!!

Darby, 45, and another sky diver were at about 14,000 feet Thursday with their feet strapped to ski boards. After one maneuver, Darby's foot came away from his board and he tumbled down. A backup parachute opened, but he was hanging limp when he crashed into Lake Okeechobee. The medical examiner's office ruled Darby's death an accident, Jenkins said.
