PHIL RANELIN is loved and respected around the globe as a master trombonist of the J.J. Johnson tradition, a former Freddie Hubbard sideman and as co-founder of Detroit's famed TRIBE Records. Over the years, he has shared bills with Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp & Jimmy Smith, among many others. A Los Angeles resident since 1977, Ranelin has been designated by official resolutions as a "Rare and Valuable Cultural Treasure" and as a "Cultural Ambassador throughout the Nation and to the World Audience" by several legislative bodies, such as Los Angeles City Council, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, California Senate and California Assembly. During the mid- to late-1990's, Ranelin, along with Jazz Advocate Dalili Pierson, implemented a Los Angeles Jazz Appreciation Series that honored such Los Angeles Jazz icons as Dexter Gordon, Charles Mingus, Hampton Hawes, Melba Liston, Harold Land, Horace Tapscott & Eric Dolphy.
