Old Guy Plays “The Theme from Peter Gunn”

May 9, 2015 at 2:40 pm Leave a comment

Peter Gunn was a private eye television series that aired from 1958 to 1961. The show’s creator was Blake Edwards, of “Pink Panther” fame. The title character, played by Craig Stevens, was an impossibly urbane, well-dressed private investigator whose hair was always in place and who loved jazz.

The series is probably best remembered today for its music, especially the popular “Peter Gunn Theme” presented here, which won an Emmy Award and two Grammys for Henry Mancini and subsequently has been performed and recorded by many jazz, rock, and blues musicians. Guitarist Duane Eddy’s version reached #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1959.

I have plans to record a couple more TV or movie themes, so stay tuned….
