Great work! This song is a breath of fresh air that caught my attention from the beginning and didn't let me go until the very end.

The sources blend so smoothly in this mix. And all on a single instrument allowing for natural, ultra-solo representations of the themes. Minimalistic but dynamic, true to the source, and honest about what it is. My kind of remix...heck, my kind of song in general. Kudos!

I have always liked the town theme in Castlevania 2, and some jazzy piano is more than welcomed in these parts. Terrific slowdown section, I'm digging that the most in this amazing ReMix. Sounds like it could have ended there, but you went even further with it and kept going for well over another minute and put the exclamation point on it. That ending, man, damn! Well done, fella!

There will (probably) be more castlevania jazz in the near future. :smile:

Any chance of ever posting a chord chart? :grin:

Well i dunno maybe, if i have the time and patience :smile:. All i can offer for now is a VERY bad hand scrawled sheet of the intro and the first A B and C. I didn't write down the other chords and stuff.

New review: An interesting and original arrangement, very jazzy (duh). Solid performance as well. A few references to other pieces (I swear I heard a few notes from "Beginning") before it gets quieter. I really like this part -- more intimate, and still jazzy. Nice transition to the final part.
