Heinie Beau

Heinie Beau (1911-1987), was not only a fine instrumentalist —clarinet, alto sax, flute— but also one of Hollywood’s finest independent arrangers, who worked for countless top orchestras and artists, including Tommy Dorsey, Red Nichols, Axel Stordahl, Paul Weston, Peggy Lee, and others. He was also an arranger for major TV and radio shows for a time, and a frequent contributor to motion picture scores.
