It's been an excitable time for fans of the big N, with the first Nintendo Direct in months confirmed to be heading to our screens soon. It's enough to set minds and pulses racing, so perhaps we need to just sit back and relax.

Frankly, it's hard to envisage a better way to do that than to chill out with this jazz version of the main Pokémon theme. This is hardly a new idea, but this Scott Bradlee arrangement - featuring Sara Niemietz on vocals - is pretty exceptional as it has a nice sense of style and a convincing tone. It's no joke or parody, though Niemietz seems to have fun with it.
