Perry Mason Theme

This is my cover of the iconic theme from the TV series “Perry Mason” which premiered in 1957.  If you were around when this show or any of its reboots were on the air, you will never forget this music.

Also known as “Park Avenue Beat”, it was composed by Fred Steiner, a very successful film and TV composer/arranger. Most active in the 1950s and 1960s, he also composed the theme for “Rocky and Bullwinkle”, and composed incidental music for numerous TV series, including the original Star Trek, Hogan’s Heroes, Have Gun – Will Travel, The Twilight Zone, Gunsmoke, and Rawhide.
