I didn’t want to hijack another thread... but I know nothing about Claude Ranger and can’t find a lot about what happened with him.
A cursory listen, and man, he sounds incredible.
Anyone have the inside scoop on what ever happened to this guy????

I knew Claude from his Montreal days. He was a b##ch of a player.

His time with Moe Kauffman in Toronto was a mismatch. Claude was light years ahead of him, Kauffman knew it.

One night, in the middle of trading eights, Claude stopped at the beginning of his eight and said, Hey Moe, can I have a solo?, then jumped back into the remainder of his eight and came out on time.

I was just getting into jazz, studying with Jim Blackly in Toronto in the late 80’s and Jim said go check out Claude.
Would go see him at the Rex and he was mesmerizing.
Another friend of mine jazz drummer Marc Congram loved Claude’s playing and studied with him a bit, but when they would book a date to get together Claude would Have to cancel because of a gig that he took or whatever.
Great musician...
