New Music: Melbourne Ska Orchestra ‘The Best Things In Life Are Free’

Covered by some of the greats, including Frank Sinatra & R. Kelly, Sam Cooke’s classic The Best Things In Life Are Free, is a tune to touch the soul. Melbourne Ska Orchestra’s rendition stays true to the big band sound but with a good dose of the orchestra’s famous skankin style in the mix. The result? An upbeat version that is definitely more danceable than any produced to date. Check out the film clip shot at the legendary Allan Eaton Studios in Melbourne,¬†featuring vocalist Pat Powell.
