JAZZ FLUTE!! Ron Burgundy, eat your heart out... Leandro Abreu (guitars, bass), with Abreu Project band members Gustavo Surniche (drums) & Leandro "Skald" Jácome (flute) put together a short-but-swingin' jazz arrangement of "Casino Night Zone" from Sonic 2. Liontamer writes:
"I didn't dislike this theme as a kid, but "Casino Night Zone" was one of my lower tier of themes in Sonic 2. (I'm more of an "Aquatic Ruin" guy myself.) That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the Leandros and Gustavo giving this a perfect jazz club performance spin. Excellent comping from 1:06 until the end, and, in particular, Skald on the flute at 2:00 was a thing of beauty. It's safe to say "Abreu Project" is a seal of excellence. :-)"
Ditto that; it's a fun enough arrangement, but the highlight is definitely the soloing, and some of those flute runs are simply delicious. Emunator adds:
"I want to go to whatever bar has THIS playing tonight! This short-and-sweet jam from Leandro establishes the recognizable Casino Night Zone groove early on and then rides out the rest of the track with some kickass back-and-forth soloing. That flute solo came out of nowhere at the end but I was grinning ear-to-ear when that came in. Much of this song is taken up with original soloing but the chord progression and bassline is never lost, making this instantly recognizable. Everything is tied together with some crunchy production work befitting of a live tavern jam - pour me another!"
Couldn't have said it better myself, so I won't: great stuff in the tradition of Abreu's other ReMixers which adds some very flowery, spiraling jazz flute into the mix for a sweet treat that's hard to beat!

Yeah, the solos really shine in this ReMix, especially that flute, which I couldn't help but smile from hearing. This was a very cool mix and I quite enjoyed this rendition of Casino Night Zone. I honestly probably would have had a better time with this Zone if I was listening to this during all that, haha. Damn fine ReMix indeed, I like this.

The ending alone made this track for me. I got serious Little Big Planet vibes from that flute.

Chill jazz is very chill, especially with many great solos and the sexiest jazz flute of them all. Really like the atmosphere you create, literally as if you just walked into a jazz bar and are ready to relax.

This take on the original version is actually very mild; I find the basic melody and lines underwhelming for what is a pretty fun source, but I understand the goal, which is to let the original play the background to some solo work. And goodness, it's great solo work. If you want to appreciate some great play over a well-known background, you've come back to the right place - each solo is better than the last and fits remarkably well with the overall theme. Nice work.
