Watch The Altered Beasts perform an acoustic jazz guitar cover of the Super Mario Bros 2 Overworld Theme

Absolutely beautiful cover of the music from Super Mario Bros 2 by The Altered Beasts, an offshoot of the amazing The OneUps VG jazz group. 

Considering they are part of the impeccable OneUps, it's clear that they know their instruments, and create an impressive jazz rendition of this well known, but sometimes overlooked theme from the odd middle child of the SMB family.

Guitar Duo project by William Reyes and Tim Yarbrough of The OneUps.

All star VG musicians pay tribute to the Donkey Kong Country series in the DKC Mix't Ape '94

Nearly 3 Dozen tracks honor 20 years of superb video game music.

Over a dozen VGM musicians contribute to a celebration of a Gorilla, who once, along with a few sidekicks, beat up a bunch of reptiles. 35 tracks of music from the original Donkey Kong Country trilogy for SNES. Hours of high quality listening that I couldn't even begin to cover, so I'm not even going to try. The album speaks for itself, with the all star gathering of VGM talent, along with the source material by David Wise.
