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

I have been a fan of Scott's arrangements for many years. They are well written, thought out, and creative. His arrangements have a distinctive style and are really fun to play.

Bobby Watson

Charts excellently blend a tune that an audience would know, with a treatment that exceeds expectations.

"Doctuh" Mike Woods

Scott Arcangel is one of my favorite arrangers.  His ability to write to the strengths of our ensemble was spot on!

Charlton Singleton
Music Director, Charleston Jazz Orchestra

Imaginative arrangements to complement skillful playing.

Jerry D'Souza

Renditions sound almost like new original compositions. Humbling, dark and challenging, revealing the band's range and willingness to explore the modern nature of the jazz genre.

Scott Arcangel is a force of big band nature. From the time he stepped into the room to the time he left, Scott led the band brilliantly through his amazing and original charts. He also shared wise and invaluable information about the art of big band conducting and arranging with us. The YUJO is in a much more confident place now!
