OK, there's a Jazz song that's a classic and I'm sure most of you have heard it SOMEPLACE in your lives. It sounds a lot like the beginning of Agent Blatant (or should I say, it seems to have been the inspiration for Agent Blatent), and I've most often seen it used during chase scenes or construction/growing/building scenes in commercials.

I know that this is vague, but I really have no idea how else to explain it. If anyone has any ideas of what song I'm talking about, PLEASE tell me it's name! Thanks!

It kinda sounds like the Peter Gunn theme to me, but I'm not sure if that's what you mean.

Blues Brothers - Peter Gunn Theme

What kind of instruments are used in the jazz song you're thinking of?  Is it fast or so?

I feel like I know what you mean, but I can't place it either.  I think a step in the right direction, though, would be looking at 50's "detective jazz", because that's what it sounds like to me.

I found this website with a good list of them:

Maybe something will jump out at you?

Sara, I wish I could be more specific, but my verbal skills in describing music suck. Unfortunately, it's also not something I could even hum or imitate easily. It reminds me a lot of Agent Blatant mixed with Tank (the theme song from CowBoy Beebop). The BPM is probably close to that of Agent Blatant, though I'm completely going off my memory hear of what the song is like, and the part I can readily remember is only the first 15 seconds or so.

Hmm, no suggestions here. I recognized Spyhunter's theme (aka Sara's video) but nothing from Agent Blatant is popping out at me.
