OCR00989 - Legend of Zelda "Link Goes to New Orleans"

Recommended Posts

OH, YEAH.

this thing kicks ass. the band takes you to a very accelerated (those effin drums!! OMG!!) but chilled (distorted organ in bg is uber cool) trip to the dungeon and will keep you there as you hear how they improvise and let the guitar do its work, altough ALL the elements work impressively good one with each other. incredible performance here boys, and a cool twist to this twisted track. maybe the best arrangement in OCR for a zelda 1 song, and a site classic. get it now!!! this thing is too cool to pass up.

I usually don't listen to jazz, and usually have to be in the mood for it to listen to what little jazz music I have...but this is a great song, and one that I could listen to at pretty much any time:-)

I've been collecting Zelda remixes for a while now, and this is one is one of my prize pieces. I have this one and "Shake it Sheik!" and I ca never get the beats outta my head. great job!

I'm glad I was able to grab their other Zelda mixes before the site inexplicably disappeared. All quality stuff, and this one is no exception.

Anyone know what happened to Neskvartetten?

I've never been to New Orleans but I'm sure this is what Link would sound like when he goes there. I think it's kinda funny listening to a marching band drummer play for a keyboard jazz song. I play jazz music so I know that's completely messed up! But I did hear somewhere that it's how New Orleans does jazz. I guess New Orleans is kinda weird then. Whatever. This remix is cool no matter what crazy city it's from!

Det här är faktiskt väldigt bra för att vara er första remix, gav "Dungeon" themet ett lite mer ledigare känsla. Ni spelar väl live eller hur? Annars har ni de bästa syntarna jag nånsin har hört.

Väldigt bra låt(eller remix, beror på sammanhanget). Jag måste kolla upp era andra låtar. Johan, Lucas, Niklas, Stefan, bra gjort.

This is actually very good to be your first remix, you gave the "Dungeon" theme a more comfort mood. You do play live don´t you? If you don´t, then you have the best synths I have ever heard.

Very good tune(or remix, depends on the situation). I have to check your other mixes. Johan, Lucas, Niklas, Stefan, well done.

an all-time favorite of mine..

im really into jazz remixes! the reason? well uhm i was usually not into this type of jazz before because i didn't know the songs that those awesomely talented musicians were jazzing with..

but after neskvartetten and shnabubula (mainly) i've trained my ears and head thanks to the fact that i DO recognize these sources...

it's been a while since we had a Neskvartetten ReMix now, and i think it's time soon !!

:nicework:

Neskvartetten does Dungeon right.

I can almost envision someone wandering around in some forgotten cave/dungeon and turning a corner to randomly find a stage with Neskvartetten performing this tune on it. :-P

Great job and a must download.

What a nice warm recording sound here, and those the performances are a bit loose, the vibe is unmistakable, so get down, daddy-o's. I liked how the bass really had a great groove going on for the duration, and kept the track strongly anchored to the source. Drums were fine but a bit uninspired, and the guitar worked well enough. That bass was the real star i think.

If you haven't heard Neskvartetten yet, you are missing out big time. They are quite possibly the best jazz quartet on the site. Nothing sounds canned or sequenced. This is the real deal, and at the price of $0, it would be foolish for a jazz fan to pass by this incredibly fun rearrangement of the original Zelda dungeon theme.

I'm so happy to have found this track and this remixer. It screams John Scofield + Medeski, Martin, & Wood. Which I think is one of the best compliments a Jazz artist can receive.
