“Ya like jazz?” So go the immortal words of the great legal scholar Barry B. Benson, and they couldn’t be more relevant today for fans of the popular new Pokémon games Sun and Moon, which are breaking all kinds of sales records for Nintendo. Their incredible soundtrack is one of these games’ highest accomplishments, and now you can listen to eight of your favorite Alolan melodies reimagined in one beautiful jazz album, called “Alola That Jazz.”
Alola That Jazz is the latest album by Carlos Eiene, better known as the popular YouTube musician “Insaneintherainmusic,” who’s previously released a number of video game cover albums, including the Undertale-inspired “Live at Grillby’s” and “Back to Your Littleroots,” based on music from Pokémon‘s Hoenn region.
