It is the mark of the consummate artist to capture these feelings and use them in whatever medium he works with. This is the artist we remember the most; whether it be the horn of a Louis Armstrong or the brush of a Van Gogh, the humanity is what matters. When Janis Ian took the stage last night in front of a capacity audience in the Community Center Music Hall, it was immediately apparent that this was not going to be the usual type of concert. When she left the stage, a hour and a half later, with the atmosphere tight with the silence between her last notes and the standing ovation that followed, it was apparent that this had been a great concert. Janis' gift lies in her haunting, powerful voice and her ability to paint the everyday pains and joys we all live with. While some performers yearn to create impossible images no one really understands, Janis, on songs like "Jessie" and "At Seventeen" deals with real things in the world, the creases in the pillows after a lover has left and the "ravaged face" of a teenager that no one really likes.

MW$Mtu».l.3M f The effect is powerful and spine tingling, and far more the way things are then the airy symphonies of less talented performers. On songs like "Stars," last · night's encore, the laying bare of Miss Jan's most personal feelings creates an immediate empathy with the audience. Plaudits must also go to her band, particularly second vocalist Claire Bay. Her accompaniment was one of the most sensitive of any concert. It's good to know there are still artists like Janis Ian performing for people. In an age when so much of contemporary music is flashing lights and glitter queens rushing off to the limousine, the small but important glimpses of the real side of life are refreshing, hopeful, and very, very necessary. Loudon Wainwright II, who ,performed before Janis, attempts to tell a truth of a far different sort. He is something of a court jester, but his pleasant perversity is a nice thing to hear. And he's one of the few performers around who can rhyme "guitar" with "fire." part of w h a t will make Valentine's Day so terrific this year will be our d i n n e r at the Refectory.
