In the early days of the Art Rock Movement, Jeff Cannata formed the Progressive Rock band, "Jasper Wrath" along with Michael Soldan, Robert Gianotti and Phil Stone. After signing to MGM Records, their first LP, recorded at Phil Ramone’s Studio (A& R) in New York, it received rave reviews. After extensive auditions, looking for the right additional "voice", James Christian (House Of Lords) was added to the lineup, along with keyboard prodigy Jeff Batter and guitar virtuoso, Scott Zito. Equipped with full light show and effects, the band toured the Northeast to packed houses until 1976. Because of commercial and directional musical differences, that year, the group disbanded.
