The classic theme tune for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is transformed into a 90’s neo soul jam for Scott Bradlee’s Saturday Morning Slow Jams series.
Everyone knows the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song. Everyone. And I’m talking about the ORIGINAL 80’s cartoon, not that new crap. So when I saw a caption involving “Saturday Morning Slow Jams”, I was both intrigued and apprehensive at any form of reworking such a seminal part of my childhood. It took just two seconds from the opening Rhodes chord to quell my fears, played by New York creator Scott Bradlee and then the vocals kicked in, provided by singer Drue Davis with all that sultry jazz cafe/neo soul beauty. I reckon even Shredder would get down to this one.
