Nelson Rangell - Biography

Nelson Rangell - Saxophonist, Flutist, Recording Artist

...
Jazziz magazine writes that Nelson Rangell is "an artist of depth, a master of song, and an improviser non pareil. The Times of London notes "his extraordinary facility on a range of instruments and his undoubted virtuosity," adding that Nelson is "one of fusion's most accomplished exponents. Saxophone Journal writes "He commands the alto saxophone with such authority there can be no denying that Rangell is a true artist," and Flute Talk Magazine states "Nelson Rangell creates the impression that anything is possible when he improvises. Such praise is a confirmation of what contemporary jazz fans have known since the Denver based saxophonist emerged in the late 80s: that Rangell is one of the most exciting and diverse performers in the genre, equally adept at soprano, alto, and tenor saxophone, as well as being a genuine virtuoso on flute and piccolo.
Rangell is the fourth child in a musical family. His brother, Andrew, is a well known concert pianist living in Boston; his brother, Bobby, lives in Paris and is a leading woodwind player in European jazz and studio scenes. His sister, Paula, is a professional singer living in New Orleans.
Rangell first played flute at the age of 15. Within six months he was studying both classical and jazz music at The Interlochen Arts Academy, a national camp for gifted music students. He went on to attend The New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. As a student he twice won Down Beat Magazine's prestigious National Student Recording Awards competition both as best jazz and best pop/rock instrumental soloist. After college he headed to New York in 1984 to pursue his career.
...
Though Rangell has recorded mostly in the contemporary/pop and smooth jazz formats garnering top radio play and a large audience, The Times of London notes "heard live a much more robust and idiosyncratic player emerges. Nelson has now released 15 CDs nationally and internationally.

After highlighting the big band dance orchestra sound, the group will continue a journey through the funky soulful sounds of the sixties and seventies until they arrive in the present to feature pop and smooth jazz artist, Nelson Rangell.

Audiences will hear Rangell play sax and flute, and maybe even whistle. Jazziz magazine writes that Nelson Rangell is "an artist of depth, a master of song, and an improviser non pareil. The Times of London notes "his extraordinary facility on a range of instruments and his undoubted virtuosity," adding that Nelson is "one of fusion's most accomplished exponents.

The CJRO is comprised of a group of the top talent on the Denver jazz scene. Nearly every jazz or pop performance in the area will boast at least one member of this incredible ensemble. The entire group gets together only a handful of times each year to dazzle the audience with a true big band experience. Saxophones for this concert are Nelson Rangell, Art Bouton, Tom Myer, Elijah Samuels, and Wil Swindler.
...
The band will trace the origins of Big Band Funk, beginning with Duke Ellington's "Rockin' in Rhythm," following it through the funky soulful sounds of the sixties and seventies, arriving in the present to feature pop and smooth jazz artist, Nelson Rangell.
