About Al Jewer & Andy Mitran

Andy and Al also work together at Mitran Mitran Music, a custom music production business that Andy started with his partner Louise Dimiceli-Mitran about 35 years ago.

In 2000 Al Jewer made an appearance on WGN Television’s Bozo Super Sunday Show. It was the longest running children’s television show in history. Al was there to play Native American flute for a music segment on the show. The host of that segment was Andy Mitran who played Professor Andy, a cast member and one-man-band on the show for fourteen years until it went off the air in 2001. Al was invited back to the show when he and Andy decided to get together and write a tune at Andy’s recording studio. They performed an improvisation that ended up being a piece called Ritual Cave. A friendship and partnership started that has led to well over a thousand pieces of music written for albums, television, film, and commercials over the years.

In 2005 the Duo started writing what would become hundreds of pieces of music for the Oprah Winfrey Show. That music is now found all across the OWN network and on the Dr. Oz show. In 2010 Al and Andy founded Flying Trailer Music library. This music can be heard across many media outlets including many cable television shows.

Al & Andy’s last five albums have had consecutive nominations the ZMR Awards and have won twice for Surrounding Sky, ZMR’s Ambient Album of the Year 2016 and Desert Light, ZMR’s Relaxation Meditation Album of the Year 2015.
