Hammer hits the nail on the head one last time with.... Vice !!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Miami Vice: the Complete Collection (Audio CD)
As Sonny Crockett used to describe,when apprehending a major Miami crime lord, 'The one time we reeled in a big one' and this is exactly how to pay homage to this final epic journey of Jan Hammer's infamous Miami Vice scores. This long player sums up the talent,graft and pure unique musical forethought of the gifted Czech. All the classic tech-synth moments we have yearned, to jump from TV to CD have made it -'The Great Boat Race' from episode 'The Great McCarthy',the reggae bass line of 'Cool Runnin' and who could forget the beautiful tones of ' Stones War' as the light aircraft comes into land from episode 'Back in the World', dealing with the aftermath of the vietnam war. This is the only Jan Hammer album you will ever need as tracks from 'Escape from Television','Snapshots' and 'The Best of' are all here too, including 'New York Theme' and 'The Wedding' from other Miami Vice compilations. So grab those wayfarers,put on those espadrils and pretend whatever car you own, is a sleek black Ferrari.......you're there dood!!
