Yes, I read parts of your K-9000 post yesterday...I remember seeing parts of Secret Admirer (including the great Finale with Hammer's music), but I didn't get to see all of it.I haven't seen A Night In Heaven, but I have the 2 Jan Hammer-tracks from the soundtrack (Reaction Time and Like What You See) on a CDR...

The score sounds VERY Miami Vice-like. Wish the full score would be released.

Jan Hammer: I Come in Peace"I Come in Peace" music was great. I wonder why it was never released?!

stone: I guess the film wasn't big enough. I mean, a Dolph Lundgren movie doesn't automatically get a soundtrack release.

Jan did the theme tune to a show called 'The Tube', was on in the 80's over here in the UK, was a music entertainment show where all the popular bands would play Live ;)I do have a copy of it, although I cant find an example on Youtube unfortunately

ah thats what it is' date=' I was like what? you mean that sci fi show from about 12 years ago with Jessica Alba and the insufferabile Tony Dinoso from NCIS as one of the leads.that dark angel?! although I do believe Jan Hammer did do the theme for some Knight Rider 3000 tv movie/pilot back in the 1990's so my thought isnt that far fetched. also I did find the finale thing from Secret Admirer but the funny thing is I found it synced to some news footage of a Miami Car chase from a few years ago with a CTS caddie, not from the original film, unlike this one:[url']
I looked it up after the account with that video was closed and luckily found that.

I Come in PeaceHi all,I've tried very hard to find the music to "I Come In Peace". There seems to be nothing out there. Which I find hard to believe. I wish they did release the score.Also, is Jan suppose to be releasing a CD (CD's) with a lot of songs on Miami Vice that never got released from his "Complete Collection"? I thought I did see that somewhere a few month's back.

I recently saw part of "A Night In Heaven" and didn't know Jan did any of the music. I instantly recognized his track when it came on. This movie came out in 1983, so the sound was very close to the first two seasons of Vice.It was cool.

I just wish the HAMMER tracks didn't have singing over them.

Here's a score Jan did in 1968 for a Czech film called Å Ã­lenÄ› Smutná Princezna. I think it bares some resemblance to his work in the Jan Hammer Group.

 

 

 

 

As a bonus, here's a piece which features Jan Hammer's father (Jan senior) on the vibraphone (and perhaps bass). I'm not sure if it's too off-topic, so I'll just put it in a spoiler!
