Remixers on the promo project include hip-hop elite Pete Rock, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Om’Mas Keith, Shafiq Husayn, JayCeeOh & B-Sides and Tall Black Guy.
The original recordings that set the foundation for this project come from legends like Eva Taylor & Clarence Williams’ Blue Five, Ethel Waters, Lloyd Scott & His Orchestra, Jim Jackson and Charlie Johnson’s Paradise Ten Orchestra.
The one exception is Pete Rock’s remix of a new recording from the official soundtrack: a cover version of “Sugarfoot Stomp” by Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks, also known as the Boardwalk Empire house band.
The Emmy Award winning series began its fourth season on September 8.
