CD Reviews

Man! Can this man exhale.
Matthew J. Archuleta | DENVER, CO USA | 09/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I give this album a 5 star rating because the playing is phenomenally exceptional. Nelson lets loose and expresses himself with pure energy. A very talented saxophonist and atypical of the standard GRP fare.

The only drawback I have with this release is that he hasn't a 'signature sound'. For example, Gato Barbeiri has the strained seemingly imploding reed sound. Stanley Turrentine has the solid, classy, elegant embouchure and bold timbre. Paul Desmond has the dry yet emotively sweet strain.

Nelson's sound is like Sanborn's (which isn't bad) however it isn't particularly unique. A favorite cut is "Grace." Listen to the peaks and valleys of the expelled force of air on this cut and the sublime beauty--it is aptly named. Nelson needs to release more albums as this. Another must have for your collection."

"I only recently "rediscovered" the CD, Destiny, much to my pleasure. It is simply a masterpiece. My favorite cut is "Sonora"(#9), a hauntingly beautiful, sensitive piece that tells a different story every time I hear it. There are also the more familiar tunes, such as the beautiful "Grace", and a terrific interpretation of the Burt Bacharach song, "A house is not a home". Simply put, this is a superb album and a great showcase of Nelson Rangell's enormous talents. He is truly a giant in the Smooth Jazz arena...and "DESTINY" shows just why!"

"I had the opportunity to hear, live in concert, Nelson Rangell when he appeared in beautiful St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Not much people attended, but he was spectacular, simply wonderful. After the concert I had to find his CD's to purchase and this one, Destiny, is just wonderful. I would highly recommend it. There was a song that he performed by whistling, it brought tears to my eyes. I can't seem to find it on any of his CD's though. If you know which CD it's on, please let me know. I bought two others, so now I have 3 Nelson Rangell that I play daily. Good job!"
