A big city, big cars, and big crime demand a big sound. And there's no bigger sound than the Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra. When the German producers of FBI Man Jerry Cotton needed to give their American hero his musical identity, there was only one guy for the job. Peter Thomas. He's always had a special way with a tune and he was a huge fan of American jazz. Music is a big part of what makes the Jerry Cotton rollercoaster such a giddy, fun-filled ride. It's wild. It's crazy. It zigs. It zags. It's all over the map and at times over the top - like the hustle and bustle of New York City life, or better: a European's impression of the American way.
Thomas reconfigured American jazz the way the filmmakers reconfigured New York City, mixing it up with sounds that appropriately call to mind the military, the lounge, the chase and even the circus.
