Video games have used a plethora of different musical genres over the years, and I tend to find that I’m always pleasantly surprised when they remember to pull from Jazz. After all, Jazz can be eccentric, soothing, sad, etc, but it’s always wildly imaginative and improvisational.
It’s too bad, then, that solid video game jazz is so rare. With a tiny pool to pull from, I think I’ve done an alright job at compiling some of the very best video game jazz ever written. Once again, I hope you enjoy my podcast celebrating the greatest video game music of all time, Tuesday Tunes.
