To celebrate, we're announcing our first planned album release on OCRemix...
 

Chronology
20 Years of Chrono Trigger

In summer of 1995, SquareSoft released what would become one of the most iconic and recognizable video games in JRPG history. Created by "The Dream Team" of SquareSoft, Chrono Trigger pushed the limits of the Super NES and had its' gamers holding onto their consoles despite the dawn of a new generation that was soon to follow. Most memorable however, was Yasunori Mitsuda's beautifully crafted soundtrack which set the atmosphere for the game and kept gamers immersed in what would become one of Square's most iconic stories.

"Chronology: 20 Years of Chrono Trigger" will be the OC Jazz Collective's debut album and will pay tribute to Mitsuda's/Uematsu's score and its' legacy that has stood the test of time. The album will consist of 8 jazz and funk arrangements which span the entirety of the game's story. This album will consist of all live instrumentation and performances from the OC Jazz Collective's impressive line up of musicians.

Super excited about this, but I need to point out that the Projects forum is specifically for OCR-approved official projects. As far as I know, neither Dave, Larry, nor I have heard about this album project before. Moving this over to R&C for the time being.

EDIT: NEVERMIND I AM A STUPID BUTT! BRING ON THE JAZZ!!! ITS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW AND EXCITINGLY DIFFERENT STORY!

You guys need to do a hardcore gangsta jazz rap remix called 2016 AD and have it be about all the troubles of modern day

This is really exciting! Thanks Sagnew for drawing my attention over here with your dang like button mashing :D Sad that I couldn't be involved, even tho you wanted a simple flute part.. though it probably wasn't simple enough for me. Despite having a couple mixes posted with flute I still consider myself a beginner, don't even have embouchure down pat yet.

@Wiesty Very psyched, of course. I haven't been chiming in lately because my second daughter is going to be born like, tomorrow, and things have been pretty crazy.

Please make sure we discuss logistics & schedule before any release date is announced.

And if we've got some sort of short trailer, or just a quick audio demo we can play, for the upcoming MAGFest panel.... let's do it :)
