Nelson Rangell – By Light

Nelson Rangell’s debut album was released on Gaia/Gramavision Records, but soon thereafter he was signed by Larry Rosen and Dave Grusin at GRP Records. A succession of albums followed at GRP where he recorded eight CDs. His stated ambition throughout these endeavors has been “to try to consistently grow and evolve as a player and broaden my horizons as an artist while endeavoring to make music that people will feel and relate to.”

With his musical armory encompassing flute, piccolo, alto, tenor and soprano saxophone as well as whistling, he was well equipped to fulfill this desire. He has recorded with The Rippingtons, Chuck Loeb, Patti Austin, Tom Browne, and The GRP All Star Big Band to name a few and is featured on Don Grusin’s Grammy nominated CD “The Hang.” Though Rangell has recorded mostly in the contemporary/pop and smooth jazz formats garnering top radio play and a large audience.  With his discography of now 17 CD releases Nelson Rangell continues on his musical path with 2 new and very unique albums, “Red”, a collection of dedicated saxophone recordings in the pop jazz and contemporary jazz idiom and “Blue” which features the flute and piccolo throughout it’s highly artistic and diverse 11 tracks.

Nelson’s new CD By Light is now available for pre-order from ahead of the February 9th release date. We’re excited for this release and think you’ll truly enjoy it! Get yours at
