Finishing our week of fun with arranged video game music comes this album from the 1991 two-disc soundtrack to Nintendo's Super NES classic Super Mario World aptly titled — what else? — Super Mario World. The first disc out of the set features especially mellow arranged versions of some of the more memorable Super Mario tunes, giving us a light jazz jam rendition of World's Overworld theme (called "Super Mario World" on the album in a ridiculous triplicate of title repetition) featuring the smooth sax stylings of Sadao Watanabe with Soichi Noriki on keyboard and Tsunehide Matsuki's guitar work. Give it a listen and be whisked away to Sunday brunch poolside at the Mushroom Kingdom country club.
