Video Game Music

I sort of hear it.  Those determined horns like you're steeling yourself for a difficult task.

Today's Mario music is my favorite track from the Super Mario Galaxy 2 soundtrack, from Ryo Nagamatsu who later was head composer on both 3DS Zelda games (Link Between Worlds and Tri Force Heroes).

 

I of course love the epic orchestral music in the Galaxy games, but to me the essence of Mario music will always be jazz, from Super Mario Bros. 1-1 to now.  "Puzzle Plank" is taking inspiration from that wonderful string band tradition where folk, blues, and jazz all intermingle, but with many modern elements blended in.  Great stuff.

Cool composition, but yuck I can't stand that Genesis/Mega Drive sound chip.

 

But still, what a box art!!!
