The James Bond Theme - The Skatalites

Legbamel Not-Pop

If there's one thing I love, it's music that refuses to fit neatly into a genre. Here's a ska-jazz cover song from the legendary Jamaican ska band The Skatalites, which clocks in at nine minutes. As the original James Bond Theme last about a minute and a half, that leaves a lot of room for jazzy improvisation and play, over a strong ska back-beat. The song won't be pigeonholed, and ends up the better for it. Enjoy!
