Legend of Zelda's Saria Song as a jazz piano piece!!

Early in the morning hours I was inspired to write this piece in one sitting when I was listening to Saria's Song in my head and suddenly realized that the main melodic motif is a 3-note repeating figure, which is characteristically similar to the "ragtime riff", which creates a polyrhythmic through grouping straight 8ths in 3. After this realization a ragtime version of Saria's Song started playing in my head, and by the time I started running through a solo on the progression I knew this was something I needed to write down. Hopefully there are others who are interested in this concept as much as I was in writing it. There are a large number of solos in the middle section that are on top of the original chord progression, which is mostly original material but in line with jazz interpretations of standards (that is, almost adding more new things than retaining the old through solo sections). I tried to make sure that the original concept of it being based around the catchy Saria's Song was kept, so there is later section where the original song is quoted more bluntly and somewhat humorously.

You have true skill.

This piano arrangement is impeccable, and the the rhythm and melody match perfectly.

The solo parts are awesome, and I really can't find anything to disparage here, aside as what has been pointed out, that this is not a live recording and a midi. But a wonderful arrangement of a popular tune.

The solo parts are technically proficient, and the variations on the main theme are great as you go into different keys. Gosh damn is this a pretty excellent piece.

If this were played live, I probably could not find enough good things to say. As it stands I have a lot of to say already, but you know.

Nice arrangement

The concept and composition is excellent, the only gripe I have with it is it's not a live performance - you can tell it's just recorded straigt out whatever score software you used, which is a hell of a shame as it really sucks the expression out of what has the potential to be a really awesome improvised solo in the mid section.
