ERNEST RANGLIN RETURNS TO CALIFORNIA FOR TWO SPECIAL SHOWS IN MAY
AVILA FEATURING ERNEST RANGLIN
On August 28th, Avila Street Records proudly released Avila featuring Ernest Ranglin. Recorded over three days in the Summer of 2011, the collaboration between Ranglin and Avila Street Records artists Yossi Fine, Inx Herman and Jonathan Korty was a fruitful session yielding an album worthy of the legendary jazz guitarists over 50 year career in music. The reviews are rolling in and the love for Avila is overwhelming!
"This is a great album for the world-music or jazz aficionado who just wants to chill. Ranglin's solos still have that creamy, rhythmic quality they had when he played guitar on Bob Marley's first albums." - Christian Science Monitor
"Let Ernest take you on a whirlwind of music brimming with boiling rhythms and sounds from Jamaica, Africa, and beyond." - Inside World Music
