Returning native trumpeter Nicholas Talvola has toured extensively throughout Europe on the professional jazz circuit. Tonight at 8 p.m. he teams up with more rooted local jazzbos, including Tim Randles, Ken Lawrence and Tommy Fitzmaurice for a tribute to Miles Davis at the Arcata Playhouse. Having heard Mr. Talvola play a few times in the past year, I can tell you this will likely be a great show ($12, $10 students and Playhouse members).

OG Rasta vocal harmonizers Israel Vibration are putting on a big one at the Eureka Municipal Auditorium tonight at 9 p.m. ($25, $20 advance). With a career spanning five decades, these Jamaican polio survivors and reggae monks are always known to put on a good show when they visit the Emerald Triangle. DJ Dub Cowboy opens the show.
