Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal’s compositions can be heard in movie theaters, concert halls, CD recordings and on television. As a film composer, Beal scored Ed Harris’ critically acclaimed directorial debut, POLLOCK, and, most recently, BLACKFISH (Magnolia Pictures 2013). Other scores include director Bob Rafelson’s NO GOOD DEED, William H. Macy’s DOOR TO DOOR, THE PASSION OF AYN RAND, “From the Earth to the Moon” (Episode 9), USA’s “Monk,” Tibet: Cry Of The Snow Lion, Jessica Yu’s IN THE REALMS OF THE UNREAL, and, most recently, Netflix’s original series “House of Cards.” Beal received an Emmy for his score to the NBC Sports documentary, PEGGY AND DOROTHY. Beal’s seventh solo album, Alternate Route (Unitone Recordings), features his trumpet concerto, as well as original works for trumpet and the Metropole Orchestra of the Netherlands, a group with which Beal frequently writes and performs. His other jazz albums include Three Graces, Contemplations (Triloka) and Red Shift (Koch Jazz). A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Beal received his first national attention while in college as the recipient of an unprecedented 11 “db” awards from Downbeat Magazine for his recordings as a jazz trumpeter, composer, and arranger. Beal resides in southern California with his wife, soprano Joan Beal, and their son, Henry.
