I don’t normally play this type of saxophone (Epic Classical Sax, LOL) but I am a fan of cool composition and orchestration techniques. When I heard the saxophone in Manaka Kataoaka’s new soundtrack for Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and I had learn it! Looking forward to playing through the game on Friday!

Arcade Bops initially started during the 2020 pandemic when the founder of the group@carlosmatamusic , put together his own 20-piece virtual jazz orchestra to record and release on his YouTube channel. His first videos featured music from the popular game series “Animal Crossing”, eventually leading to over 30 new videos with music from over 20 different games over the past 2 years.
One of the main goals for the Arcade Bops brand is to bring the sophisticated nuance, color, and energy of the jazz and classical genre to a new audience of listeners that may be familiar with the video game song library.
