CMA Jazz on Main: An Evening with Nelson RangellDoors open at 7:00 p.m.
Concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
CMA Jazz on Main: An Evening with Nelson Rangell
"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."

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.

Nelson Rangell will join the Noel Freidline Trio for an amazing evening of contemporary and straight ahead jazz.
