Jack Wyles is a California-based composer and recording artist who specializes in music for Film, TV, Video Games, and Commercials. A professional sax and bass player, he studied bass and song arrangement with the late Jazz icon Jaco Pastorius, and much of what he learned from Jaco shines through in his hip Jazz and Funk tunes. Jack also writes Dramatic, Orchestral, and World tracks, and he has written soundtrack music for several independent movie releases, including the internationally-released global warming documentary "Cool It" and "Celebrating Kaiser's Black History."
Jack Wyles was a co-leader of the Alternative Rock band The Source in the 1980's, which put 2 EPs in the top 20 of the CMJ National college charts and was part of the Akron Sound that included heavy weights Devo and Chrissy Hynde. His next band, IN THE POCKET!, was a Jazz Fusion band from Oakland, California, whose album LADIES AND GENTLEMEN PRESENTING IN THE POCKET! was nominated for consideration by the Grammy® committee.
This song could be from an action movie, TV show or video game. The criminals, soldiers of fortune, or government agents have gathered up the resolve to make their move. It's "do or die" time. The aggressive orchestral sounds blended with percussive rhythms give this song an in your face quality. Instrumental, Action, Impending Orchestral
This song is perfect for an action movie, TV show, or video game. The strings play well with the heavy drums and electric guitar. It's smooth, yet powerful. It's time to get moving. The forces of good (or maybe evil) know that it's time to "get on with it". Instrumental, Action, Theme Spy
This song is about danger being all around. Yet, you keep going. You have a mission to accomplish, a destination to get to. The song could be in a video game, or a background for a tense dramatic scene for TV or movies. The combination of strings with electric guitar and cinematic drums is powerful. Instrumental, Action, Theme Spy
This is an intense and hard hitting song that fits into an action, dramatic or suspenseful Movie or TV scene. It's great for a cop show, international espionage, or alien invasion! The cinematic drums pound hard. The strings give it an eerie feeling. There is a sense of impending doom. Instrumental, Action, Intense Orchestral
This is the high speed escape from prison. It's hectic and off center, and even a bit humorous. I am reminded of some of the energy of the movie "Cool Hand Luke". It's been a hectic and crazy escape, but they are finally free. This song would be great chase/action scene for TV, film, or video game. Instrumental, Action, Theme Power Play
This is a super cool instrumental jazz fusion tune in the vein of Miles Davis that conveys mystery, darkness, and perhaps impending doom. The song could be used for an urban night scene in a crime drama or mystery. Someone is roaming the streets at night. No one is safe. What could happen next? Instrumental, Action, Theme Spy
From the Pat Metheny-like guitar and Wayne Shorter-like sax, to the droning percussion, this is a very searching song. Perhaps it is reflective of a long spiritual journey, one where the searcher catches a glimpse of something transcendent in life. Human Drama, adventure, even science fiction. Instrumental, Action, Theme Crime
