You have to catch all of this sublime jazz cover of the Pokémon theme
You haven’t lived til you’ve heard the word ‘Pikachu’ as a vocal improv.
You’ve worked hard this week, and you’ve earned a reward. It’s time to kick back and enjoy this smooth jazz tribute to your childhood.
That’s right: It’s a glorious jazz-infused rendition of the Pokémon theme song, courtesy of Postmodern Jukebox‘s Scott Bradlee, YouTube vocal artist Sara Niemietz, and a rollicking jazz trio. Keep listening for the bridge, where Niemietz turns “Pikachu” into a sweet vocal improv. We wish all covers of geek anthems sounded this good.
