Biography

Born Denver, Colorado, USA. One of the more distinctive voices working in the oversubscribed pop/jazz firmament, Rangell first picked up the flute at the age of 15. Six months later he found himself studying at the Interlochen Arts Academy, before travelling to the New England Conservatory Of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, to study with renowned saxophone tutor Joe Allard. Immersed in the work of Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt and Cannonball Adderley, he headed to New York in 1984 to pursue his calling to jazz. The next three years were spent playing with top players including Hiram Bullock, Eric Gale, Richard Tee, David Sanborn and others. He also found occasional employment with the Gil Evans Monday Night Orchestra. Rangell's 1987 debut album was released on the obscure label Gaia Records, but he soon found a more satisfying environment at GRP Records. A succession of albums followed, beginning with 1989's Playing For Keeps. His stated ambition throughout these endeavours has been to surmount the "challenge for an artist to do music that's accessible but also has musical merit. I try to deliver emotions and share experiences that people can recognise and relate to in themselves in a form that has real musical substance.' His musical armoury encompassing flute, piccolo, alto, tenor and soprano saxophone, he was well equipped to fulfil this desire, with 1994"s Yes, Then Yes confirming his talent in its vibrant evocation of moods and feelings. In the late 90s Rangell moved to Shanachie Records.
