Go, Epona, Go!

Originally composed by Toru Minegishi, Asuka Ohta, and Koji Kondo from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Nintendo Wii.

Sometimes I think to myself, “Make it jazz!” I don’t listen to jazz and am not at all proficient as a jazz musician, but I rather like my own impression of what jazz music is and thought this one should be done in that style. I can’t say the flute has ever been my favorite instrument, but it somehow really shines when in the context of a jazz band and that’s the main reason I chose it. Also, I like that it has those old, foresty associations. When I think of flutes, I usually think of hobbits in marching bands anyway.
