Biografia

Nelson Rangell has primarily played pop-jazz throughout his career, although he did a credible job playing some soulful alto with the straight-ahead GRP All-Star Big Band. The records he cut for GRP in the early ’90s made him into a popular contemporary jazz attraction in the David Sanborn tradition.

A native of Denver, CO, Rangell learned how to play flute at the age of 15, and within six months, he was studying music at the Interlochen Arts Academy. Shortly afterward, he learned the saxophone, and in 1979 he won Down Beat’s Best High School Jazz Soloist competition. Following his graduation from high school, he attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston; this time, he won the Down Beat contest on the college level. In 1984, Rangell moved to New York. He spent three years in New York playing clubs and working as a sideman, not only on jazz sessions, but also on jingles and pop records.

Rangell finally began his solo career in 1987, releasing To Begin Again on the Gaia label. Two years later, he moved to GRP, where he released Playing for Keeps. His second album became a major contemporary jazz hit, and with each subsequent release, his popularity grew. His next four albums — Nelson Rangell (1990), In Every Moment (1992), Truest Heart (1993), Yes Then Yes (1994) — were all popular on the contemporary jazz charts. In addition to recording his solo albums, Rangell was involved in the GRP All-Star Big Band, playing both in the studio and on the road.

    He is surprisingly deep and thoughtful musician, willingly going to all sorts of experiments and vividly responsive to new trends in modern jazz music.

    I'm with Jordan! Having seen Nelson live as well, I can safety say this. Although his recorded music is spectacular, nothing can prepare for his virtuocity live. When I saw him, he performed a piece named "The Way to You" from the "Always" CD. It's a fine song on the CD, but when he finished free-styling live, the crowd was filled with people whose mouths were agape with wonder. This guy is the real deal.

    Nelson is one of the most unique contemporary jazz artists in the field, he has an easily recognizable sound, and it is intoxicating. Check out all his CD's there is at least one outstanding, unforgetable tune if not more on every disk!

    Nelson Rangell is my idol. Ever since I first heard La Repuesta, I have been hooked.

    Now I've listened to Mr Rangell so much, I have to say it's such a travesty that so few people on last.fm listen to him. Get your fingers out, people!

    I love the sound, it's very smooth. Even some time was found to add in a clarinet. Nice :)

    Try 'Starlight' from the 'Always' CD. It's some of the best smooth jazz I've ever heard. I don't listen to Beatles covers.
