He worked again with Chris Speed in Boston, where both collaborated with the guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel in the band 'Human Feel'. He also played in the Either/Orchestra. The band members then moved to Brooklyn in the early 1990s, where members of the former 'Downtown' were on the music scene. D’Angelo also played in the bands of Erik Friedlander, Bobby Previte, Jamie Saft/Cuong Vu, Reid Anderson, and Ed Schuller in the band Orange Then Blue and began a long lasting collaboration with the drummer Matt Wilson.
D’Angelo has composed music for Big Band, chamber music, string ensembles and soloists. D'Angelo has released three albums with his trio 'Morthana'. First in 2008 the album Skadra Degis (Skirl Records), in a trio with Jim Black and Trevor Dunn.
