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." It calls for a large ensemble of colorful sounds and stylized interpretation that will make for an enjoyable piece for medium-advanced percussion ensembles. As a genre piece through-and-through, a rhythm section of guitar, keyboard, bass guitar, and drumset helps provide the stylistic glue to keep the mood in tact. Combining the sounds of funky 70's cop rock, mysterious noir jazz, and modern themes of multiple meters, this piece will provide an entertaining show piece on percussion ensemble concerts or indoor concert competitions. This piece comes with a full, bound score and includes all individual parts available for printing on the included CD-Rom.
