I think Maestro proposed the idea of mashing up two songs from different series, which I particularly like.

I totally knew you would use that song. :P

How about a JAZZ IT UP contest? Take a song and turn it into a Big Band Swing, Latin, Bossa-Nova, Bebop, Ballad, etc. I'd love to see moar Jazz around here! :D

Hey I don't mind. I'm not even the host anymore (right?). I say we wait, but let's decide on a theme in the meantime!

In for Host

I actually like The JAZZ IT UP Idea, to be honest. It's something that could easily be done and isn't really restrictive on what arrangers can do with the song.

I actually think the jazz-idea is more restricting than the two song mashup, because it forces you into that particular style. When putting two songs together, you can make it as jazzy or classical or br00tal as you like. I personally like the mashup better, but that's probably because I've always put more songs together in all my arrangement contest submissions. (I also don't have that much knowledge about jazz music)

That is true now that I think about it. I still like the Jazz idea more but I kind of have a preference for Jazz arrangements.

There are a lot of different Jazz styles, though. It doesn't just have to swing; it could be a ballad or bossa-nova, etc. There's HEAPS of Nintendo Jazz-esque music to check out (Super Mario 3D World or Mario Kart 8).

You could write it as either a traditional Jazz piece (chords, solo section, etc.) or just notate the whole thing! It'd be a great learning experience for all! :D

I like jazz as much as the next guy but I think it could be a bit of a turn-off for those who don't like jazz
perhaps we should follow up on the previous one and do an ensemble of our "main" instrument whether or not that be piano
