expansion of a complex exponential in terms of Bessel functions

Dear MathForum

Is there a way to expand a complex exponential function such as exp[i x_ Cos[y_]]
in terms of Bessel functions in Mathematica? For example, 
Exp[i a Cos[b]]->Bessel[0,b]+Sum[i^n Bessel[J[n,b](Exp[i n b]+Exp[-i n b])?

Regards

P. S. Ramanujam
