Nostalvania (Markus) hits us up with a classy, smoky jazz trio (piano-bass-drums) take on Super Mario Land:
"Here is my piano trio version of the Birabuto and Muda Kingdom themes from Super Mario Land. I mixed the two sources together, added some original writing and reharmonisations. I also changed the time signature to 7/8. The genre is jazz with some gospel influences. The mix title is actually a reference to the jazz standard "Seven Steps to Heaven," which also is the title of an album by Miles Davis.
0:00-0:50 - "Birabuto Kingdom"
0:51-1:33 - Original writing
1:34-2:24 - "Muda Kingdom"
2:25-2:50 - Original writing
2:51-3:12 - "Muda Kingdom"
3:13-3:36 - "Birabuto Kingdom"
3:37-4:26 - Original writing"
Very cool, very fun, very authentic... feels like you just walked down an alley into a smoky club where three musicians are jamming and it just HAPPENS to be a meditation on Super Mario Land. The time signature works nicely & the overall sense of timing is brisk and invites copious toe-tapping, to be sure. This one tripped the judges up a bit due to the connective tissue being significant, such that there were questions about the overall arrangement being too liberal, but Emunator carried the consensus decision:
"I have to give credit where credit is due here, becuase you did a pretty great job of fluidly transitioning in between sources and original material, and there's never too long of a stretch in your arrangement where you stray entirely away from the source. I'm not one to necessarily mince over percentages at the end of the day, I feel that there's substantial interpreration and creativity present here. The bassline connection during some of the original parts makes this an easier call, but at the end of the day I'd likely sign off on this anyway counting just the overt source usage.
Not much more needs to be said, Markus is great at what he does, and this is another solid entry in his catalog that carries a distinctly-unique gospel character that separates it from his prior work."
Creative, introspective, and deep exploration of some otherwise sugary & bubble melodies; Markus does a great job making you feel like these pieces were originally written for a jazz trio, as opposed to adapted, which is to say that things feel completely natural & make sense. Clever, infectious, and just downright cool...
