    Wide Hive Players

    The Wide Hive Players were perhaps best described by BBC Music Magazine: “The Wide Hive Players are a collective of talented in-house players from the San Francisco-based label Wide Hive Records. Producer and label-owner Gregory Howe, who clearly has a great ear, has penned a striking selection of soul-fused jazz tracks for his house band.

    The Wide Hive Players return with Players Please; a new recording of 15 original compositions featuring guitarist Drew Zingg (recorded and toured with Steely Dan, and Les Paul among others).

    Portrait In Blue

    “Phil Ranelin is one of my favorite trombone players on the scene today; he has his own unique style and warm and attractive sound.” — Freddie Hubbard

    “Ranelin’s horn has a throaty, unruffled quality; his soloing is well manicured and economical.” — Down Beat
