Song : The Trooper
Performer : Alex Skolnick Trio
Album : Transformation, 2004
Beware of total rip off in Jazz on the song The Trooper. Alex Skolnick from Testament fame had fallen into the jazz world in the late '90. In earlier 2004 they manage to release a jazz tribute to heavy metal tunes. This version of the Trooper only recognizable in the intro, and the rest is just a jazz improvisation by the team. Alex Skolnick played with Nathan Peck, Double-Bass, Vocals and Matt Zebroski in Drums, Percussion, Vocals.
If you got enough ball to listen all thru jazz diminished chord, here's your chance.
Faithful to Original version: nope
Re-Arrangements: 5/5 - for the jazz tunes (1=notes per notes, 5=extreme deviation)
Rhythm guitar: -
Sound and Production: 4/5
