The Kid Should See This

John Wilson Orchestra: Scott Bradley‘s Tom & Jerry cartoon music

For the two adults in our house, this music brings back some rowdy cartoon cat and mouse tv memories from childhood. For the two kids in our house, it’s an orchestra playing energetic, jazzy music. And happily it’s super entertaining, energetic, jazzy music with slide whistles, hootin’, and hollerin’ to boot. 

This is the John Wilson Orchestra playing an arrangement of composer Scott Bradley‘s ’40s and ’50s Tom and Jerry cartoon music. It was recorded for the 2013 BBC Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall.

And if you’re looking for a Tom and Jerry episode to provide some context for this video, here’s an old favorite from 1952: The Two Mouseketeers.
