"It's not easy writing Christmas songs in the middle of summer," said Parton. "I drug out all my Christmas decorations, and we had Christmas in Palm Springs. I had to get in the mood." The one-hour special, Kenny Dolly: A Christmas to Remember, will be telecast this Sunday on Channel 10 at 8 p.m. and will features five original Christmas songs written by Parton. Parton said it was the first time she'd ever attempted to write a Christmas song.

"We did the album in July, the special in August. I think we did a year's work in two weeks," she said. "It was a lot of work but I had a lot of fun, too." "It was physically tiring," added Rogers. "We worked long hours, but it was creatively rewarding. I remember telling Dolly a joke at midnight Parton interrupted, saying, "If he hadn't, we'd have finished a day early." Although they were casual acquaintances, the two singers had never worked together until they recorded Islands in the Stream, a hit single in 1983.

"We were trying to find a way to work together again soon," said the white-bearded singer. "We wanted to top ourselves, yet we didn't want to compete with our first record. "I had a Christmas album coming Up and that's when we got together again. Dolly contributed five new songs. I had some commitments from CBS because of the success of The Gambler, so it looked like a good idea to make a special of it" The two singers occasionally ran into each other at awards shows, where Rogers has picked up three Grammys and Parton has won three Grammys and six Country Music Association Awards.

Parton had opened concerts for Rogers, and he had done a guest spot on a TV show with her. "But we'd never really sung together until our first record," said Rogers. "That's the fun. Dolly, like me, is best when she screws up. I remember once on an awards show she screwed up and she said live on the air she'd screwed up.

That's what the audiences love to see the unexpected." Their association doesn't end with Sunday's special. For the first three months of 1985 they'll be on the road doing concerts three days a week. Will the two country and western stars ever do a movie together? "I know we'd enjoy doing a movie," said Rogers, "but we need a vehicle that works rather than just finding something to get us together."

Jazz pianist no longer improvising a career FROM PAGE 1C between doing the jazz standards and doing the Bartok. I'm performing music that had already been written by different composers. All I have to do is understand and inhabit the language of that music." Keith Jarrett will perform Bartok's Piano Concerto No.

3 with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 8:30 p.m. in the Eastman Theater. Isaiah Jackson will conduct the program, which includes Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses and Rimsky-Korsakou's Scheherazade.

Art Tatum streaming together downriver in a canoe." Jarrett insists he never knew what would happen when he sat down to improvise. "If you do know, then it's time to stop," Jarrett said. "It was like a purposeful torture. It's presumptuous to have nothing planned to say, sit down at a piano, and expect 90 minutes of music to come out. How often can you put yourself through that?" Now, said Jarrett, his days of improvisation are over, at least for the time being.

It became too safe, he said, too trendy. What's more, other musicians Jarrett mentioned pianist George Winston with some distaste are trying to do the same thing. BUT BECAUSE he's not improvising, Jarrett said, that leaves more time for composing, and he has recently completed several pieces, one a sonata for violin and strings, another for flute and piano, that will be performed in the near future. Asked whether he would go back to jazz, Jarrett paused: "I don't know there's only a certain amount of time in the day." He added that he doesn't like to compartmentalize his music. "There's not that much difference he remembers one teacher who forced him to play nothing but Bar-tok and wouldn't let him use the pedals on the piano.

"Naturally, for a while I disliked Bartok intensely," Jarrett said. "It took a while to get over that." Jarrett got into jazz after a brief stint at the Berklee School of Music in Boston. In the mid-1960s, he first achieved recognition as a member of the Charles Lloyd quartet, and in 1969 Jarrett formed his own trio. In 1970 and 1971 he played with Miles Davis almost every important name in contemporary jazz, it seems, once played with Davis leaving in 1972 to perform with his own quartet. UNLIKE OTHER Davis alumni, such as Joe Zawinul and Herbie Hancock, Jarrett did not move in the direction of jazz-rock fusion, but chose to remain with traditional instrumentation.

Indeed, Jarrett has never liked jazz-rock, and still doesn't: "I think everything I said about it has come true. Jazz is about personal struggle, and even about social struggle, and if you decide to just play games with what we already know, then you take the struggle out. Now we're just saying, 'Well, let's go to sleep with some kind of rhythm Although Jarrett 's quartet work was well received, his greatest popularity came from a series of improvi-sational concerts many performed in Europe or Japan that featured simply Jarrett, a grand piano and an audience. His improvisation includes elements of classical music, blues and gospel. Stephen Davis, writing in The New York Times, once described a Jarrett concert as "something like Chopin and (jazz pianist) IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO rij (i irtt- fe.
