Commentary

I liked the original mix, mainly how a bunch of great performers played and improvised in a very organic, passionate way, which reminded me of ’70s free-jazz/psychedelic rock.

To remix this track, I focused on how to “redefine the coolness of the music.” In other words, I tried to extract the “cool attitude that jazz music has” underlying in the original mix and (daringly) get rid of the “heat” or “sweat” the performance had. By rearranging/reordering all the elements, I built a suite (an ordered set of instrumental pieces), hoping that I could transform the track into another musical story which is more modern and electronic.
