Biography

Trevor Alfred Charles Jones (born March 23, 1949 in Cape Town, South Africa) is an orchestral film score composer. He is known for his work on Excalibur (1981) The Dark Crystal (1982) Angel Heart (1987) The Last of the Mohicans (1992) Cliffhanger (1993) Dark City (1998) Desperate Measures/The Mighty (1998) From Hell (2001) Dinotopia (2002) Loch Ness/Aegis (2005) and many more. Climax of his career: a live album recorded in 2006 at the Soncinemad festival. Versatility, sensitivity, taste for majestic themes and orchestral control, here is all the talent of Trevor Jones.

Director Michael Mann initially asked Trevor Jones to provide an electronic score for the film, but late in the game, it was decided an orchestral score would be more appropriate for this historic epic. Jones hurried to re-fashion the score for orchestra in the limited time left, while the constant re-cutting of the film meant music cues sometimes had to be rewritten several times to keep-up with the new timings. Finally, with the release date looming, composer Randy Edelman was called-in to score some minor scenes which Jones did not have time to do. Jones and Edelman received co-credit on the film (thus making this very popular and acclaimed score ineligible for Oscar consideration).
