    Hi, Jeff.

    Saw the 1st episode about Ceaser's stolen gold standard ("Stolen Eagles") last night. The show is very well done and really puts you "there". I thought the music, especially the percussive opening piece (which may be the main theme), was compelling. Great stuff, man!

    Jeff,
    I know you are a pro and all, but let me say WOW. When I saw your name in the opening credits, I thought "Hey! I know that guy! Or at least, I've CHATTED with that guy!"



    Congrats! The music is just superb. As with the best film music, it was at once transparent and yet very impacting.

    If you have time.......
    Can you explain into any detail the process you went about creating this music? Did you do a mock-up with sample libraries and then record with a real orchestra? I am curious about the process and the inspiration.

    Thanks SO much for sharing your music with us.

    Congratulations on your continued success Jeff!

    Doing the score of this mega-series is quite an accomplishment. I read that this production budget for the first season stands at US $75 million (I hope you're getting a nice share of that )

    When in Rome, do as the Romans do!

    All the best,

    Just remember, if you have to pillage and burn to get your share, order is important.

    Jeff,

    Congratulations on your continued success! Great stuff!

    btw, Are you the same Beal who wrote a big band chart called "A Blues Grows in Brooklyn"? I have enjoyed using that many times with students and am saddened that it is P.O.P.

    It means the publisher reports it as "Permanently Out of Print"...
