F-Zero... solo piano? JJT makes it work, much like LousySpy went carribean with the game's music and made that work, too. You might remember Silence as the track with the ninety degree turns and more subdued, spartan music than the rest of the circuit. F-Zero really did an amazing job of varying color scheme and music from level to level, and everything seemed to click perfectly. I liked X and love GX, but the original still has a certain luster to it that makes it special. JigginJonT starts out reserved but towards the end takes the track in some jammin' directions, and the entire performance and arrangement is intelligent and emotive. The pianist writes:
"As for the arrangement itself, this isn't as carefully and thoroughly executed as "Live From the Yggdrasil." I learned the changes to Silence, thought of some ideas, then just started recording. After a couple takes, I had come up with something I was satisfied with. The result is a rougher, more candid piano arrangement, with much more improvisation than my previous work. "
Gotta be honest, I can't improvise in chords too well... at all. I can do monophonic improv, for a single solo line, but the type of playing here would be something I'd personally have to have in mind well ahead of time, so beyond the arrangement itself I can appreciate that performance/creativity aspect quite a bit. Shariq writes:
"There's not much I can really say about this piece, aside from the fact that it's incredible. You really show off your virtuosity on the piano in this piece. There's plenty of emotion and expressiveness that's absolutly necessary in piano pieces; this piece has it in spades. I absolutly love the arrangement, and for me, the best part comes around 1:43. The flowing piano really gives a sense of liquid momentum; I can feel a lot of motion at that point. The way this arrangement changes and evolves is really something amazing. "
When I think of the original and I think "piano arrangement," my mind musically draws a blank. When I listen to this piece, however, it clicks, and it's EXACTLY how I'd want to see the track handled. Great versatility and, as it turns out, an ideal piece of music for JJT's impressive abilities. Recommended.
