PIANIST & ARRANGER

Scott Arcangel is a musician of rare talent. Both, as a pianist or arranger, he manages to play or write with total respect for the tradition and with one foot in the future. I love his work!

 - Claudio Roditi


Pianist, composer & arranger Scott Arcangel writes for and performs with a variety of jazz and commercial groups. Based in New York, his music is published through Maxwell Tree Music and UNC Jazz Press and is performed regularly by big bands, small groups, high school and collegiate jazz ensembles, as well as artists around the world. 

Scott has studied with the renowned jazz faculty at the University of North Texas and William Paterson University. He has studied piano with Dan Haerle, and composition and arranging with Jim McNeely, Paris Rutherford, and Michael Abene. He is the former Music Director and Arranger for The West Point Jazz Knights big band, producing several recordings, radio and television broadcasts, and hundreds of performances. 

His recent notable arrangements have been for Claudio Roditi, Stefon Harris, The Charleston Jazz Orchestra, Le Moyne College, The Boston Pops Orchestra - and most recently, a collaboration between the Manhattan School of Music Jazz Philharmonic Orchestra and trumpeter Jon Faddis.

He has extensive experience as a performer and educator, and has presented clinics on arranging, improvisation, and ensemble performance at colleges, festivals, and music conferences - including recent presentations and performances at the Jazz Education Network's 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 Conferences.
