Smooth Jazz for a Hot Summer Night with Nelson Rangell

The critically acclaimed jazz saxophone and flute virtuoso, Nelson Rangell, joins the CJO for a night of incredible jazz – both cool and hot!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 Rangell’s “considerable crowd pleasing power”. 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 as one of the leaders of the “smooth jazz” scene: 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 joins the CJO to perform classic and contemporary jazz favorites as well as tunes from his newly released CD, “By Light.”

Opening Act: Columbus Youth Jazz Orchestra | 6:45 p.m.
