Press Start with the 8-bit Jazz Heroes

8 Bit Jazz Heroes – Press Start.jpg

I had the chance to catch these folks performing at MAGWest last year, and have been looking forward to this album for a minute. Glad to finally share this smooth collection of classic game sounds. Fans of Nintendo soundtracks better listen up. Super Mario and Legend of Zelda get some special attention, along with a tribute to Metroid along with the original Tetris.

The 8-Bit Jazz Heroes are releasing our first album, PRESS START.
