About Jeff Beal:

Emmy award winning composer Jeff Beal is a member of a new generation of eclectic composers. He is fluent in the diverse languages of jazz, classical, contemporary, electronic and world music. Beal’s compositions can be heard in movie theaters, concert halls, CD recordings and on television. Steven Schneider (regular contributor to the NY Times) wrote of "...the richness of Beal's musical thinking - the ways in which he conceives of his solos as fully-developed mini compositions, while his compositions often capture the liveliness and unpredictability of the best improvisation."

As a film composer, Beal scored Ed Harris’ critically acclaimed directorial debut, Pollock. Other scores include director Bob Rafelson’s latest feature No Good Deed, William H. Macy’s acclaimed Door to Door, The Passion of Ayn Rand, From the Earth to the Moon (episode 9), and the theme and underscore for USA’s hit series, Monk, starring Tony Shalhoub. Beal recently completed the score for Tibet: Cry Of The Snow Lion , a documentary initiated by the Dalai Lama, which chronicles the history and religious life of Tibet. The soundtrack will be released in the August of 2003. He is currently collaborating with director Jessica Yu on her feature length documentary, In the Realms of the Unreal. Beal recently received an Emmy award for his score to the NBC Sports division's documentary, Peggy and Dorothy.
