I have listened to a(nother) album of jazzy arrangements of video game music:

Verdict: it's good!

Favorite arrangement: Zelda's Lullaby. Just inject that 5/4 straight into my veins

Least favorite arrangement: Lonely Rolling Star. It's not bad, but I'm just not sure this tune is well suited to the big band thing

bonus round

Favorite bit of rhythmic fuckery: track 5, 1:02. Hell yes, just take a bite out of that measure

Least favorite bit of rhythmic fuckery: track 2, 0:52. Offsetting those eighth notes by a sixteenth doesn't feel good to me
