"Butter Building" (Kirby's Adventure) LIVE Jazz Cover // J-MUSIC Pocket Band
Our live cover of "Butter Building" from Kirby's Adventure, originally composed by Jun Ishikawa. This arrangement by Max Boiko.
You know that feeling you got when you were a kid back in the day and you actually looked forward to waking up at 7am on your Saturday off from school, just to get a bowl of cereal and play your favorite video game? Yeah, that's the kind of nostalgic emotion this song has to us. There's not much to say about this one, except for the fact that all this Kirby music has us exploring the true upper limits of our creativity and musicianship when it comes to instrumentation. This beautiful piece from Kirby's Adventure features Ben Rosenblum on accordion, shredding as always, and Jake Chapman on marimba, who, throughout the session, truly provides the sound of this music with his 16-bit arpeggio re-creations. And then there's Max, as well, who not only solos here, but gets his first arranging credit with the band! He actually helped out a lot with this music, and half of the arrangements are by him. More to come like this! Poyo!
