Ideal for stylised espionage / detective thrillers with shady characters, gangsters, crooks, scammers, embezzelers or wheeler dealers, 1960s / 1970s private eye. Instrumental, Action, Thriller Jazz
A suspenseful intro in the style of Lalo Schifrin's Bullitt leads to a driving theme from the horn section reminiscent of spy capers such as The Man From Uncle. Great for chase scenes, and the 15/30 sec. versions are perfect for adverts looking to convey tension / release in a humourous fashion. Instrumental, Action, Theme RnB Retro Kitsch
