Echoes Playlist
Between 1984 and 1988, Miami Vice lit up TV screens as the hippest cop show ever. Part of its hipness was the kinetic soundtrack composed by Jan Hammer. The synthesist came to renown with The Mahavishnu Orchestra and Jeff Beck, but hit number one with his theme to Miami Vice. With ricochet percussion samples and screaming electric guitar and synthesizer lines, Miami Vice completely altered the TV scoring landscape. The TV series is now being released on DVD. We return to the scene of the crime, with Miami Vice composer, Jan Hammer.
