Yes. DarkeSword aka Shariq Ansari gives us his most mature ReMix to date, a very enjoyable, fast-paced jazz arrangement from Sonic & Knuckles. Saxophone is the flavor of the moment here, and while it might not fool you into thinking Coltrane is in the room with you (which would take an act of god regardless), the samples used are decent enough that - in conjunction with Sahriq's knowing arrangement - things work well. Large portions actually consist of what is technically a saxophone duet, with harmony playing a very pivotal role in the mix. There's also a quick drum pattern with delicious ride cymbal and rim shot articulations that give one the feeling of travelling in Fall or Winter, with spartan scenery passing quickly by, in a luxury vehicle of some kind (I've always been a sucker for the Rolls Royce Phantom series). There's a great amount of interpretation here, with considerable portions of sax soloing that come off not as self-indulgent but expressive and absolutely appropriate. There's high quality piano and a fitting, unobstrusive bass to fill things out. Very spacious, wide mixing gives a feel of pensive, cool reticence that changes to warmer, more kinetic motion at points. I'm impressed on all accounts - transitions work, melodic and harmonic interpretation are high calibre, and the whole ReMix comes together in a very polished but still emotional package. Recommended.
