ASMAC Big Band Hanginar: Jazz Composing, Arranging, and Scoring with Jeff Beal and Scott Healy
Join composer Jeff Beal and moderator Scott Healy for a deep dive into the world of jazz composing, arranging, and scoring using the language of jazz as the organizing idiom. The conversation will cover Beal’s new film score for the recent Apple TV+ film Raymond and Ray with music performed by Beal, John Patitucci, and Peter Erskine as well as a look at more of Jeff's work for larger ensembles including a big band and jazz choir commission for the groundbreaking silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (as time permits).
Live Reading Session, Analog Jazz Orchestra, Cornwall NY - LA 6:30 PM | NY 9:30 PM
Geoff Vidal and The Analog Jazz Orchestra, live from Cornwall NY, read new big band arrangements by the 2022 ASMAC Bill Conti award-winning student arrangers: Ryan Kiernan, Daiki Nakajima, and Joshua Boaz Lam.
It’s no coincidence that Jeff Beal’s music began to garner notice with the acclaimed film Pollock (2000). Beal composes, orchestrates, conducts, mixes and often performs on his own scores – no other artist’s brush strokes touch his canvas. An accomplished and recorded jazz musician, Beal uses his improvisational skills to read the emotional tone of a scene. “This process allows me to envision a world where anything can happen.”
A five-time EMMY® winner, Beal’s improvisatory method, sense of timing and sophistication have made him a favorite of directors including Ed Harris (Pollock and Appaloosa), David Fincher (House of Cards), Oliver Stone (JFK Revisted, The Putin Interviews), and Lauren Greenfeld (The Queen of Versailles, Generation Wealth). Documentarians also appreciate this flexibility, and he has scored many, including Blackfish, The Price of Everything, Weiner, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Sequel, The Bleeding Edge, and Boston. His dramatic scoring credits include HBO’s Rome, CARNIVÀLE, The Newsroom, USA’s Monk, and Netflix House of Cards. His recent film projects include the documentary The Biggest Little Farm & Breaking News in Yuba County.
Moderator and ASMAC Board Member Scott Healy is an LA-based, Grammy-nominated composer, producer, pianist, and multi-keyboardist, best-known for playing in the house band for Conan O’Brien. Scott's Website
