finished The OC Jazz Collective presents "The Guru"

Recommended Posts

Well folks here it is....

After a long...long....long time of waiting, the OC Jazz Collective has been reborn from the ashes of the OCR Big Band. This premiere track entitled "The Guru" is a post-bop re-imagination of "Song of Storms" from Ocarina of Time. We have an amazing line up of OC Remix greats on this track!

Arranger: Wiesty

Soprano/Alto Saxophone- XPRTNovice

Tenor Saxophone- Anthony Lofton

Trombone- Fratto

Trumpet- Sir Jordanius

Piano/Drums- Wiesty

Bass- audio fidelity

Solos by Anthony Lofton, XPRTNovice and Wiesty

We had a ton of fun working on this track, and we hope to bring you many more!

Wow, REALLY authentic sound on this one, excellent work! I loved that section around 1:33. Fantastic playing by everyone, and those solos were really tight. I'm extremely impressed overall.

I'd love to arrange something someday for a jazz ensemble like this. Hopefully I can get around to it!

This is some really awesome stuff! The performances are stellar and this perfectly captures that jazz ensemble feel. I particularly enjoyed that sax solo and the transition into the piano solo bit. The noodling in the piano solo was smoooooth. I am a huuuuuuge fan of jazz and we really need more stuff like this!! Bravo to all involved!!! :grin:

And this reminds me - Wiesty - I need to follow-up with you regarding that jazz arrangement I sent you a looooong time ago. I'd love to see it come to fruition if the OC Jazz Collective is now officially in the house ;-)

Thanks everyone! Everyone on the team was super excited to get this out after a lot of hard work. The OC Jazz Collective is definitely a thing now, so if you have any arrangements you'd like for us to take a look at, PM me!

This is an awesome arrangement, you can really hear the musicality of each of the performers, and the arrangement is pretty top notch as well.

That piano solo tickled my fancy so much I don't know what to do with myself.

Vastly classy, I've heard a lot of arrangements of this song but this one stands out amazing job.

Oh wow, this is pure sexy goodness. Definitely putting this group on my radar from here on out.

We may or may not have an album in the works....but do stay tuned :wink:
