Jack Scarangella
These songs of struggle and redemption are powerful rock that will make you stand up and fight, soulful blues that will touch your heart, and jazz that will lighten your soul.

Joining him on this journey of soul and friendship are gifted musicians and friends. David Stoltz, Mitch Chakour, D. A. Foster, Joe Cerisano, Christine Ohlman, Jimmy B. Biggins, Colin Tilton, Billy Holloman, Curt Ramm, Mark Easton, Alecia Chakour, and Norman Johnson. He also had join him Michael Barrette and Doug Gagnon. Jack was one third of the band Treasure and a member of The Fabulous Rhinestones. He played with D. A. Foster in the Shaboo All Stars and worked with many other bands and artists.

Northern Lights (Native American drummers) are playing Turtle Song and a poem about autism, read by David Browning, is emotionally stirring.

As the protégé of Buddy Rich, Jack started drumming at the age of 11. You can see his amazing journey at jackscarangella.com, where you can also purchase his first album.
