An Evening with Saxophonist Nelson Rangell
CMA Jazz on Main is excited to announce that it will close out its second full season with a return performance by jazz saxophonist and flutist 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.
Back by popular demand, Nelson Rangell rejoins the Noel Freidline Trio for an amazing evening of contemporary and straight ahead jazz.
