Presenting the debut of the Video Game Jazz Orchestra, Hang on to Your Hat, featuring big band arrangements of music from Super Mario 64.

Brought to creative life by producer David Russell and a team of top-notch arrangers, the album highlights the timeless tunes from Nintendo's classic by maestro Koji Kondo. The album was recorded in Nashville at Ocean Way Studios with some of the best players and production crew in the biz.

Each piece takes us through familiar levels while leaving space to expand and show off. Hear the music of Mario and his nemesis Bowser as you've never experienced it before!
