Wayne Wilkinson Group, feat. Nelson Rangell

When: Tue., Feb. 14, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Early musical training doesn't guarantee greatness, but it can help. In his mid-teens, Nelson Rangell studied at the Interlochen Arts Academy before moving on to the New England Conservatory of Music, where he won two Down Beat awards. In the years since, the Denver-based saxophonist has been hailed by the highly respected Jazziz magazine, declared "an artist of depth, a master of song, and an improviser non pareil." All that, along with Rangell's penchant for smooth jazz, makes him the perfect featured soloist for the Wayne Wilkinson Group's Valentine's Day concert at the Fine Arts Center's SaGaJi Theatre (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org). Showtime is 7:30 p.m., with the Colorado Springs Conservatory giving a pre-show performance an hour earlier in the Deco Lounge. Tickets are $25/adv, $30/door. — Bill Forman
