Quote table for two:
For me the interesting thing about Jan Hammer is that with Mahavishnu his playing was superb,
but when he came to compose Miami Vice he really toned it down, eg. Crocketts Theme.
I don't disagree but he got that 'guitar technique' really sorted, starting off with just the MiniMoog but taking it beyond (especially in his work with Neal Schon where they traded licks). I liked a lot of the MV stuff - had a certain 'glossy sheen' that a lot of incidental music doesn't have and which I think was an important factor in the series' success).
At the risk of this turning into a synthy game of Mornington Crescent, I give you.....
