Nelson from a Sax Player's point of view!

"I am also a sax player and am very impressed by Nelson's talent on the sax. He makes playing the sax look extremely easy, but don't let that fool you. The sax is a hard instrument to play and Nelson's playing definitely fools you! It is evident that NR practices every day. The way he growls on the sax is incredible. He has mastered the "altissimo" notes (those extremely high notes). Some of you have said that he sings with the sax. Yes he does. And let me tell you that I have not heard any singers sing this way. Good job, Nelson, and keep up the good work."
Just Say Yes!!!

"In the early to mid 90's GRP records had contracted with several up and coming musicians and bands. Not the least of which was Nelson Rangell. He is a superb soprano, alto, and tenor sax player. He also can play the flute and piccolo. The title track maybe the best one on this. Looking foward... is a good song too. This features his soprano sax playing. Never Forgotten... is another wonderful track. Love Is... sounds like a remake to me, but there isn't really any fillers on this CD. Star Stream is a dreamy, yet jazzy song. Swinging For The Fence is a techno-jazz style song. He sounds a lot like David Sandborn on this one! One Heart Calling is sad and a long song, that has a Latin style to it. The Runaround will awaken you if you happened to drift off during the last song. This one sounds a lot like the Rippington's and no wonder...because Mark Portmann and Tony Morales (both of which have been part of the Rippingtons) are featured on it. They along with Chuck Loeb are an integral part of this CD. Chuck also produced a good part of it. Child's Play is another song in which Nelson plays the flute and piccolo. I really like this one. The last track Time Will Tell is a fitting ending to a CD in which you must just say yes, to!!!"
YES, YES, YES!

"This has got to be the ultimate reed CD--Nelson gets down and dirty with no-nonsense, straightforward riffs that still amaze me! Yes, even after all these years! However, his finesse on the flute really moves me, too! Say YES YES YES!"
