John Beal Music MP3s

John Beal was, before he moved on to other things, a prolific arranger of film music, usually “homages” for use in movie trailers. His two cd collection of trailer music Coming Soon is out of print now but readily available used. Recently I discovered Amazon has a collection of some of his trailer music and score arrangements available for download. These include in particular arrangements made from the Judge Dredd trailer and the Basic Instinct theme, both written originally by the late great Jerry Goldsmith and featured frequently in 1990s film trailers.

Also of note, especially this close to Veterans Day, is Beal’s military service. He is an inactive US Marine and Vietnam veteran.
