Shella Records

The legendary Ernest Ranglin.

Ernie ranglin

I had the privilege of meeting Ernie Ranglin over the weekend when he performed in Toronto. At 82 he is still an incredible performer switching effortlessly between Ska and Jazz virtuoso riffs. I got the chance to interview him in a back room of the venue and over the din of a fax machine and printer going bezerk he told some incredible stories. I wondered if he might have remembered Sheila Rickards from the early days of his career…

“One thing I can tell you..to me she was the greatest of them all…”
