What I love about Morse is that, as his overall prowess at jazz and funk has improved, he's also gotten more creative with sound design and instrumentation, blending a lot of non-traditional textures and keeping things fresh. Same goes for posu yan and ktriton - all three have gotten better at the core of their primary genres while also reaching outside them for expanded aesthetics. The staccato accordion riffage and intro percussive tweaks w/ exposed EP soloing are just two highlights on this mix from jm's one-man Castlevania EP, Sonata of the Damned. You've also got some great acoustic piano soloing, sweet & very quick percussion (love the segue into march-style snare patterns), subtle electric guitar trills, and a funky fretless bass. It's also our first arrangement from Order of Ecclesia; Joshua writes:
"I think I played Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for an hour or so before heading into Ruvas Forest, at which point I paused the game and let the music play on repeat. The source tune is *amazing*--it captures the essence of Castlevania very well."
I was just mentioning, I think at PAX East, that when people think of Castlevania, they usually think dark, gothic metal or minor-key organ fugues. I like how Morse's album completely bucked that expectation by turning in some clean, classy jazz & funk arrangements that showed just how malleable the series' music is and how it completely & totally works as jazz/funk, in the right hands. Great stuff from an album that, while short, was consistently hot & on the money; check out the rest at http://sotd.ocremix.org.
