Ah. I think I actually heard this on youtube as part of this rock candy...'project'.

Really like this, has sort of a ponderous quality to it. Great balance between Shnabubulean virtuosity (while not getting too heavy) and thoughtful restraint.

More mixes d00d! Actually, I challenge you to make an impro remix employing that lh>drums/rh>bass concept you had started on a while ago. That'd be tits

I'd like to comment on DJP's assessment of Sam, he INDEED can play improv as well as most people play arranged. I met him in person once (Great guy!), and he banged out an amazing rendition of Magus' theme on the fly that I will remember for a long time hence.

Sam! If you're reading this, Leon/Aaron says Sup :D.

Same to DrumUltima and Jose the Bronx Rican who were also there :D. And Bahamut for that matter o.0

There are some great ideas here, and the off-the-cuff nature gives this a fun vibe. 1:26 is easily my favorite part, I love the exaggerated phrasing, it really brings the section to life. Well played, I get a Charlie Brown feel here too.

Excellent stuff here, especially considering the source, which just hinted at all the possibilities that Sam actually explored here. I must say, though, that 2:30 onward is brilliant. I didn't even play Earthbound and I feel nostalgic. ;)

Hey, a Shnab song!

I feel like this is one of his more cohesive arrangements - good piano playing naturally, but a sense of cohesive flow that sometimes is missing I feel in his work more importantly. I don't remember the source being particularly long, so this makes this all the more noteworthy.

This is pretty amazing, I have never played it but this remix intrigues me to play it.

The arrangement has a 16-bit era RPG feeling to it, which makes it easy to feel nostalgic even if you haven't played this particular game. I especially like the parts around 1:30 and 2:40, simply because they sound so lively and quirky.

Reminds me of Masashi Hamauzu's piano playing from his SaGa Frontier 2 album. Yeah, that's a good thing.

It's bright, lots of syncopation, lots of stacatto. I don't know what there is to say other than it's really good. Bright, sunny, and playful. Goes on my piano playlist.
