Valentino, Tayna Scarlett at BellaVista

Mick Valentino speaks blues, jazz, R&B, and rock fluently for his show tonight, which is no surprise considering he has been at it for 30 years. The Reno resident, who has often been called “the guitar player’s guitar player,” often plays with Tanya Scarlett as a duo or with her trio (which is playing on the weekend). So, if you love jazz and blues, this is for you. A heads up: He will be playing regularly at the BellaVista. Play time is 7 to 10 p.m.

The Tanya Scarlett Quartet plays Friday and Saturday, 7:30 to 11 p.m. Scarlett, a local favorite, sings jazz, blues, and R&B with Ahaguna G. Sun on drums and vocals and Kevin Burton on keyboard ” both of who received gold records for their work on Frankie Beverly and Maze albums in the 1970s. Add Valentino and you have a very accomplished quartet indeed. Call 265-3445 for more information
