Among the many accomplishments of the late Steve Jobs was the development of Pixar Animation Studios. Pixar's computer-animated films provide great story-telling, with memorable characters, playfully astonishing visuals, and compelling music.

For their feature films, Pixar has used three talented composers: Randy Newman, Thomas Newman, and Michael Giacchino. Host David Garland presents music by these composers for such Pixar films as "Toy Story," "Up," "WALL-E," "Ratatouille," "Finding Nemo," and others.

Fell in love with the Finding Nemo soundtrack long before I saw the movie. Thomas Newman has become one of my favorite composers. Thanks for this Pixar evening.

So far I have read handful articles about Steve Jobs since I was shocked with the news last Wednesday night. One of them said, interestingly, the creation of Pixar was his greatest accomplishments among all his dazzling accomplishments. I don’t have the article on hand now, but as soon as I find it I will come back and post.
