Hello egroj can you please tell me the password required to open dowloaded files on your blog thanks Ernest Ranglin was born June 19, and grew up in Monty Alexander Featuring Ernest Ranglin - Rass! small town of Robin's Hall in the Parish of Manchester, a rural community In the middle of Jamaica.
Music has always claimed a special place In the Island's culture, and Ranglin's destiny was set from an early age when two of his uncles showed him the rudiments of playing the guitar. When they discovered just how good the young boy was, they bought him a ukulele.
Ranglin learned how to play by imitating his uncles, but he was soon to be influenced by the recordings of the great American jazz guitarist Charlie Christian. Living in rural Jamaica, however, inhibited the boy's ambitions, which, even at the age of fourteen, were focused on music. He then moved to Kingston - the country's capital - ostensibly to finish his studies at Bodmin College. Very high on Ranglin's agenda was to seriously study the guitar; something not on the school's priorities.
His lessons came from guitar books Feel Like Makin Love - DAngelo - Voodoo DJ Soul Essentials late-night sessions watching the Jamaican dance bands of the time: he was particularly influenced by Cecil Houdini, an unrecorded local musician.
By the time he was sixteen years old, Ranglin was acknowledged as the rising young talent in the city. In he joined his first group, the Val Bennett Orchestra, playing in the local Monty Alexander Featuring Ernest Ranglin - Rass! . Such was Ranglin's burgeoning reputation that he soon came to the attention of rival dance bands and, by the early-Fifties, he was a member of Jamaica's best-known group, the Eric Deans Orchestra, touring around the Caribbean and as far north as the Bahamas.
The big bands gave Ranglin the hugely beneficial experience of learning how to orchestrate and arrange. The constant tours also We Are - Hollywood Undead - Notes From The Underground (Unabridged) Ranglin a wider vision, meeting musicians from other traditions.
Once, for instance, when he was working In Nassau his performance was heard by Les Paul, who gave Ranglin a guitar In admiration of his talents. It was, however, back In Jamaica that his career was to be transformed by a chance meeting.
In Ranglin was leading his own quintet, playing the leading hotels In Kingston and the resorts on the north of the Island. Immediately Impressed by Ranglin's extraordinary talents, Blackwell offered him the chance to make a record. The album featured a Monty Alexander Featuring Ernest Ranglin - Rass! called Lance Heywood on one side with Ernest Ranglin on the other: It was the very first release by Island Records and the start of a long association between Ranglin and Blackwell.
This was a very different kind of style to the big bands. Johnson and Ranglin recorded several instrumentals for producer Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd at Federal - the only real studio facility on the island. Ska became the bedrock of Jamaican popular music, leading to rock steady, reggae, ragga and all the innovations the island has brought into the global mainstream. Ranglin's fluent and versatile guitar style, coupled with his arrangement skills, meant he was in constant demand right through the ska era.
Blackwell had a song he thought could be a pop smash. He also had a young Jamaican singer called Millie, who'd previously recorded some sides for Coxsone Dodd. It went on to become a worldwide hit, the first time ska had infiltrated into the vocabulary of pop music.
In recent years, Ernest Ranglin has gone back to his roots and has made various cross cultural collaborations and concept albums. On Below the Bassline he covers some of the greatest songs of the rock and roll era. The Search of the Lost Riddim album took Ernest Ranglin to Senegal for his first visit since the mid 's when he toured as part of the Jimmy Cliff band. These recording sessions represent the accomplishment of a dream he had cherished for over 20 years: returning to Africa to record with African musicians.
Modern Answers to Old Problems is an adventuresome mix of jazz sophistication and Afro-pop syncopation, and finaly his last album Gotcha! Cuando descubrieron lo bueno que era el joven, le compraron un ukelele.
Monty Alexander Featuring Ernest Ranglin - Rass! grandes bandas le dieron a Ranglin la experiencia enormemente beneficiosa de aprender a orquestar y arreglar. Sin embargo, fue en Jamaica donde su carrera fue transformada por un encuentro casual. En Ranglin lideraba The Planets Bend Between Us - Snow Patrol - A Hundred Million Suns propio quinteto, tocando en los principales hoteles de Kingston y en los resorts del norte de la isla.
Este era un estilo muy diferente al de las grandes bandas. En Below the Bassline interpreta algunas de las mejores canciones de la era del rock and roll.
