I'm so glad Nintendo is taking a more jazz-oriented approach to their upcoming game soundtracks! Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, and other games are certainly incorporating more jazz elements into their soundtracks, which pleases me to no end. Also, the featured saxophone soloist in this track, Masato Honma, blew my socks off! After transcribing his solo, I decided I'd put it to use by covering the track. I took some liberties in this one, and included an underwater arrangement, as well as a final lap arrangement!
