OCR00156 - Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past "Dark World Jazz"

Recommended Posts

Hot ham blam! This is really cool. I can truly get use to this one. Interesting idea to remix this song in a jazzy style. Piano finalizes the work too. Well done!

Very Nice. :-)

Smooth mellow coffee-house style jazz, just the way I like it.

The source really works well as jazz.

Great stuff.

Oh I remember this...

I was searching for Zelda tracks on a P2P software (maybe WinMX), and I found this; after a while I followed the link in the album tag and....well I discovered my favourite website ^__^

Either I haven't listened to this before or I just didn't appreciate it the last time I did. Either way, I'm glad I corrected that mistake. The trumpet here is gorgeous; the source tune is one of my favorites from the game, and it hasn't lost any of its merit by being transformed into smooth jazz. Excellent job.

This was the mix that got me into OCR. I even showed it to a couple friends who had played zelda 3 and said "isn't this the coolest thing ever?"

The samples have shown some age, but I think they way they're processed helps them sound more realistic. The arrangement is very simple, but each element works really well. It also sounds like it's a natural fit for the darkworld theme to be done this way - the melody doesn't sound chopped up or that anything is taken away from it in the transition. The piano soloing in the middle doesn't knock yer socks off, but what's there is really effective.

Still a really great mix, and one that I hope everyone hears.

Aw, hell yeah! Haha, nice, I'm loving this jazzy take on the dark world. See, this is the jazz I like and can get into. Reminds me a little of Jazz Plumber Trio, being that bouncy, smooth jazz that you would hear in those old clubs or coffee-house style joints. Aged or not, this is pretty sweet work from Gux.
