Star Wars Cantina Band Covers

I stumbled across a couple of videos featuring covers of the Cantina Band theme song from the original Star Wars (aka Episode IV: A New Hope). The ragtime-inspired song was created by legendary composer John Williams for the Star Wars soundtrack.

Anyway, here's the first video, which features a piano duet with Martin Spitznagel and Bryan Wright...



And next up is an acoustic jazz ensemble...



And here's the scene from Star Wars that started it all...


Don't forget to check out this mix... Star Wars and Galactic Funk.

Nice post. I like the jazz band. Umphrey's teases the Cantina Band.
