In many regards Super Mario 3D World is the most inspired Mario game in recent memory and the soundtrack is certainly no exception. It hits the perfect balance of orchestral scores in the same vein of Mario Galaxy and up beat big band charts that are catchy and memorable, a welcome addition to the franchise.
Our latest cover is of the Overworld / main theme from the game charted for jazz quartet. This proved to be a little more difficult to get together than Pallet Town, as in this case it was a straight cover rather than an arrangement meaning we couldn’t stray as far from the original score.
It was an interesting challenge to put our own stamp over the tune within these slightly tighter guidelines but all in all we were fairly happy with how it all turned out. Have a listen below and see what you think!
