"Toejam Jammin"

Primary Game: ToeJam & Earl (Sega, 1991, GEN), music by John Baker

Like solos? Like extended solos? Like AMAZING extended solos? virt's at the top of his game, showing off the best chops yet heard on the site, with this TJ+E ReMix that is chock full of licks, riffs, twists, turns, and curves. Funk is the name of the game, and with flute, a deadly electric piano, muted trumpet, wah guitar, a sleazy slap bass, and other equally formidable ingredients, this one REALLY hits hard. Probably virt's best ReMix yet - his pieces always tend to emphasize playing the most, and here the source material facilitates that. The incorporation of game samples is first-rate too. A winner, not to be missed, and definitely sets a benchmark as far as soloing goes.

Oh that bass in the intro, groovy doesn't begin to describe it. The initial flute(?) part 00:35 was a little high on the register but calmed down nicely later on in the track. The percussion is perfect and the funky guitar licks meld seamlessly with the mix overall. I like the very sparse usage of FX from the game itself and the outro uses those parts nicely. Very subtle organ usage in there well which is nice.

This track is extraordinarily fun and silly, just like ToeJam and Earl. And I’m going to have to third the “wanna hear a live version of this” comment, because this track would totally provide an unforgettable experience to a live crowd. Flawless track.

I can tell Kaufman was probably head-bobbing while writing this. This is groove-laden for sure. I agree; this would be very engaging live.

I'd like to hear a live performance of this arrangement.
