Jan Hammer - Crockett's Theme (Miami Vice) Cover


"This is my cover of one of the fabulous tracks created by Jan Hammer for the iconic 80s TV series 'Miami Vice': Crockett's Theme.

To recreate the sound of the guitar as close as possible to the original one, I created a virtual instrument (playing various notes/slides/palm muting/etc. of my Les Paul) and thanks to the synth I was able to play it giving it the electronic effect, and recreate all of them the small pitch bends characteristic of Jan Hammer's legendary guitar.

The bass line having been created with an arpeggio in random mode (on the Jupiter-8), in certain points of the track it can be a little different from the original.

Thanks to my wife's passion for sewing, we decided to try to recreate the 'Crockett' style t-shirt and blazer from scratch, with the fabrics we had available at home.

Special thanks to the Brogan brothers of 'Modeling' and John Wilburn for their incredible support!


John Wilburn:

It was really difficult to recreate the track and video of this classic (it took a few months and a lot of energy), but I hope you enjoy my tribute to this classic ;)

***Please note: my videos are not live performances, but are music videos, accompanying for the covers I create. The original graphics and music from which I take inspiration belong to their respective owners. I am just a fan and I recreate animations/graphics/tracks only for personal passion and to pay homage to these great timeless classics***"
