Oregon Art Beat

Musician James LaRocca


For James LaRocca composing and playing music are two of his greatest joys. But five years ago a diagnosis challenged all that. Art Beat goes to McMinnville to see how multiple sclerosis tried to dampen, but could not destroy, this musician’s creative drive. Follow his healing and creative journey through the production of the CD “A Difficult Road” and the formation of the band Frankie Angel.
