Jeff Beal (born 1963 in Hayward, CA) is a composer of film music and concertos. He was influenced by the music of Miles Davis and Gil Evans. He was educated at the 'Eastman School of Music' in Rochester, NY. Beal moved to New York City as he was finishing up his graduate work, and released his first solo album called Liberation in 1987. He and his wife, Joan, moved to the San Francisco area, where Jeff became involved with film scoring. He has won two Emmy Awards, one for his main theme to the USA Network detective series Monk, and the other for a documentary based on the 2002 Winter Olympics called Peggy & Dorothy.
