Smash Bros. Set to Improvised Jazz Drums Is as Impressive as It Is Awesome

Smash Bros. Set to Improvised Jazz Drums Is as Impressive as It Is Awesome

The Nintendo soundscape just got a punch of jazz. 

The joystick technique in a Grand Finals Super Smash Bros Melee Match is overshadowed by the stick work of a jazz drummer in this YouTube video. Rather than the Fantasia-esque orchestrated anthem of the Fountain of Dreams, the Melee gets a soundtrack more like Whiplash or Birdman.

As @Armada_UGS and @L3ff3n toggle their controllers and gaze deeply into the match on screen, the musician plays along

The tempo syncs up with the moves of Peach and Fox McCloud — while two gamers smash, tilt, attack and barrel roll around the Melee universe, the drummer freestyles to match with them. 

It's a damn masterpiece.
