John Altman's name might not be instantly recognizable as one of the world's greatest composers, arrangers or musicians, but his music is known to millions around the world. He is the man behind 'Always Look on the Bright Side of Life' and an array of other well known classics. During his career John has worked with some of the greatest names in the music industry including; Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Sting, Diana Ross, Simple Minds and Björk.

A highly acclaimed player of the saxophone, flute and clarinet, Altman is lauded by respected critic Don Heckman in the Los Angeles Times as “one of the few film composers with authentic jazz skills.” He has composed or arranged the music for numerous films (Titanic, Shall We Dance?) and television shows (Monty Python, Peak Practice) and won several awards, including an EMMY.
