Programme Notes / Performance Details :Cop Drama is an homage to the groovy, retro sounds of classic American TV cop shows such as "S.W.A.T," "The Mod Squad," and "The Streets of San Francisco." With a large ensemble of colorful sounds and stylized interpretation, Cop Drama is an enjoyable piece for medium to advanced percussion ensembles.

A genre piece through and through, the rhythm section of guitar, keyboard, bass guitar, and drumset is the stylistic glue that keeps the mood intact. Combining the sounds of funky 70s cop rock, mysterious noir jazz, and modern themes in multiple meters, Cop Drama will provide some fun and entertainment during percussion ensemble concerts or indoor concert competitions.

This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes an MP3 recording and all individual parts available for printing on the included CD-Rom.
