Heya, this here is a custom track for a game here on Newgrounds. It's called Chompy and it's a ton of fun - give it a shot!

Before I continue, I need to thank camoshark and his musician friends for helping me out infinitely with this track, especially to camoshark for coordinating the instrument players and giving me invaluable feedback. We've got a LIVE trombone, trumpet and saxophone here, including a sick improvisation on the saxophone. Not only did camoshark and co. finish this under very short notice but they even sent me a bunch of different improv takes to choose from. They're awesome. Here's a full list of names:
Coordinator - Samuel Hébert (camoshark)
Saxophone - Hugo Choquette
Trumpet - Félix Rheault
Trombone - Jérôme Boisvert

This has a wide variety of different instrumentation. I used Hollywood Brass/Strings Gold, Pianos Gold, Symphonic Orchestra Silver, Stormdrum 2, Ra, Omnisphere and EZdrummer. Omnisphere was used for the bass guitar, jazz organ and scat vocals in particular. I also want to give a shout out to Hollywood Brass for somehow pulling through and WORKING for a jazz track, even though it's primarily an orchestral brass library. It took a lot of playing around to get the brass to work in a jazz setting, I'll give you that!

Thanks also to stunkel, Youkos and lemon42 for giving me feedback on this track and helping to shape what it is now! I worked a lot on it and I hope you enjoy it. It's in the same kind of style as Jungle Swing so if you like this then be sure to check that track of mine out too! Thanks for listening, and feel free to leave a comment!

Blow that brass boy, blow it!

This is nice and jazzy. Great job!

God, is this awesome. Reminds me of DK just a tad slower and more groovy.

i kinda like this game i beat it and now i got all of the medals for step i hope you get this

Ooh, this is very nice. Kudos for getting orchestral brass/string synths to cooperate for a jazz piece. Your percussion writing is very strong and drives the piece well. High end on the strings sticks out a tad bit when things get heavy, but that's to be expected. Bass sounds a tad out of tune on the high end, but that could be because of volume. It's only in certain spots. Doesn't really detract from the song.

Loop is a bit jagged, but barely. Excellent work, especially mixing on the live instruments!

Step responds:

Gonna have to agree with you on the high-end complaints. I abuse high-end haha. And there is definitely something wonky with that bass. My bass samples suck :(.

Thanks for the review, man!
