I can barely remember the tv program, Peter Gunn which ran as an adult detective series when this writer was just a young tyke. Last year, I caught a couple of episodes on a DVD compilation and found that I still enjoyed the whole concept. Craig Stevens played the lead role as a private detective in a water front city. He was macho but in a very "cool" way. He differed from the private investigators that tended to be portrayed as tough and course. this man enjoyed some of the finer things in life, including jazz. Love it!
Duane Eddy did a cover version of the song and, I believe, won a Grammy for his efforts. A few years later he teamed up with 'The Art of Noise" and did this version.
