Jane Scarpantoni is a classically trained cello player whom the Beastie Boys enlisted to play on the song
"I Don't Know" on Hello Nasty.
Scarpantoni began her musical career in the mid-1980s as a member of Hoboken, New Jersey's Tiny Lights,
a jazz folk-pop quintet. Her unique style of playing with Tiny Lights caught the attention of many
musicians and lead to professional recording work with Richard Barone (ex-Bongos), the Bob Mould Band,
Throwing Muses, R.E.M., Indigo Girls, 10,000 Maniacs, and Sheryl Crow among others.
