Have you ever played around with an electric keyboard’s “jazz scat” samples?  Come on, you know you have at least one time.  Well, Cinossu likes to play around with them a lot, so much so that he has jazzified the whole Sonic 4: Episode 1 soundtrack.

Today, you can download this two-disc romp through the melodies and jingles of the hedgehog’s retro-reboot and enjoy the serene sounds of “doo,” “bop” and “doooooow.”  It’s the swinginest Sonic album this side of the world.  Cinossu, also known for his ROM hacking contributions in the form of Sonic 1: Extended Edition and Retro Channel, details the creation of this album:

Every zone and every act is covered. Every jingle is too, and in some cases have been extended. Certain liberties with the sequences were taken for some tracks to make them sound better. For example, Mad Gear Zone Act 2 has a very weird chord-change after the intro. I changed this to match the intro more. Final Boss is a major change, with the second part original-ish, based on chords from the Final Boss music and the sequence from Boss Pinch.

Visit the Official Website and download the album.  You can preview each individual track as well.

  1. Wow…was that terrible…
    It would have been funny if it were one track, but to take the time to scat-ify the entire soundtrack? Seriously?

  2. Haha, I love this.
    Sounds great to me.

    It sounds pretty neat =D

    Hey Brad, its kinda off topic but whats your favorite track off of the genesis games?

  9. @Dakota: Mystic Cave.

  10. This is one of the most stupidest, and therefore one of the greatest things ever.

    I admit, I was hoping for the Sonic 4 soundtrack preformed by the actual Scatman, but oh well.

  11. I’d love to hear an acapella group cover some of these, not gonna lie.

  12. I want that version of the boss theme to be the real version of the boss theme now, it is so hilarious and yet better at the same time.

    Not gonna lie, I’m REALLY digging the Splash Hill Act 3 rendition. Catchy as the original!

  14. @soysoy

    I might consider it after my exams =P

  15. I downloaded this instantly after finding out about it. It’s hilarious and still an amazing soundtrack to listen to. I don’t know how you can dislike Jazz Scat.

  16. @just4lolzz

    That would be amazing. I would love you for it if you did. 8D

  17. This is actually hysterical. Best fan project ever.
