This is actually one of McVaffe favorites of his own work, which gotta tell you something right there alone. Our first coverage of Street Fighter 3, this jazz-jungle-blues hybrid ReMix is, in a single, commonly-used conjunction, kick-ass. Almost sounds like some of the (very good) music you hear briefly in car commercials these days, only unlike those those snippets, this is a fully-blown, developed musical idea. Beginning with simply, laid-back jazz piano, you might think at first this is gonna be a strictly instrumental arrangement, and the scary thing is that the piano line here is good enough so that it could stand on its own and be as such, but McVaffe added a lot of other flavors to the stew. Didn't skimp on the drums, using an excellent brushed snare pattern along with a variation of the classic 'amen' breakbeat (that at 2'54" gets some excellent DSP thrown its hungry way and takes off into the stratosphere of cool). Great acoustic bass that jumps around nicely, and smooth-as-silk vibes, as well as some synth bits and string pad swells, round out the flavor, but it's the way these elements come together that spells some real magic: there's something here for Jazz fans, jungle fans, and everyone in between. Though all of McVaffe's mixes display a consistent level of quality and musicality, some of them show a level of craftsmanship that excels even above his own high benchmark, and this certainly qualifies as a member of that elite group. Slick, a classic, and as highly recommended as they come.
