News Submissions / Chrono Cuts Vol 1 is out!
« on: September 28, 2018, 04:39:56 pm »
Hey guys!

Finally finished the first volume of what is to eventually be a complete set of jazz arrangements from the entire Chrono Trigger OST

The music has started showing up on Spotify, and should also be showing up on iTunes, CDBaby, etc in the next 24 hours or so.

Available for your listening pleasure are

1) A Premonition
2) Chrono Trigger / Radical Dreamers
3) Morning Glow
4) Peaceful Days
5) Green Memories
6) Guardia's Millennial Fair
7) Strange Occurances

Hope y'all can enjoy these pieces. It was tough getting them out since I am a relatively new parent, and was living in a very, very small space that was very inhibiting for making music, but thankfully I should have a lot more time and ability now that the kid is in preschool and I have a dedicated music room again!

Here's a sneak peak if you can't access the music on the mentioned platforms just quite yet!

News Submissions / Chrono Cuts Music Project Update
« on: February 03, 2017, 02:20:03 am »
So with 2017 here, I've now just wrapped up my 3rd VGM cover album, and am going to now be fully dedicated to producing about 80 Chrono Trigger / Cross tunes!

While I've talked about a CD release previously, the cost for licensing such a cast number of tunes will be huge, so I've decided that for now I am going release the tracks via Spotify, Itunes, other digital platforms in bundles. I am going to try to work "chrono-logically" (get it?) so that the songs are done in the original order of the actual soundtrack release.

The first group of songs will likely be:
A Premonition
Chrono Trigger Theme
Morning Glow
Peaceful Days
1000 AD overworld theme (I can't remember the name now, sorry)
Guardia's Millenial Fair
Gato's Song
Mysterious Portal

I'll try to have a demo out as soon as I can, I'm working on Peaceful Days at the moment with a lovely jazz cello part, and it's going to be sweet!

In the meantime, I invite you to check out my other releases on Spotify, iTunes, or even my CD's (on Cdbaby or Amazon) , and especially check out the newest Soul Blazer tribute I did, as it is highly representative of the era of 16 bit gaming's finest!

Site Updates / Chrono Cuts music CD commencing!
« on: June 20, 2016, 05:02:57 pm »
As I wrap up my latest production (Jazzyvania : Symphonies of the Knight), I can now officially say that I am ready to move on to my next production.

I am officially dubbing this project "Chrono Cuts". At this moment, I am envisioning this to be the largest production that I have ever worked on, and as such, I am quite giddy.

In summary I expect this to be around 80 songs from Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. Although I had originally estimated a release year of 2017, this may end up being 2018 depending on the circumstances, as this is quite a huge undertaking given my preference to use real instruments as opposed to samples as much as I can.

Ideally speaking, I would like for this to be released on CD as well as the more modern digital formats. However, this does mean rather steep licensing costs, which I anticipate to be an excess of $10,000 USD if I am successful. Rather than clogging this message with the messy details of production, I will just leave this particular aspect contained to the following link, where you can look at a more comprehensive explanation if so desired :

Alternatively, I may just release the music in small digital waves (Chrono Cuts volume 1, 2, etc...) as a means of funding the CD's gradually. I am undecided in the meantime as to whether or not the CD's are even a viable option for me, as much as I would like to be able to produce these. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the idea hiring an artist to produce a full-scale art book or some such thing, but the costs are indeed very inhibiting.

I am not a fan of Kickstarters for my own work (see notes in above link for a detailed explanation), but if you want an idea of what this project may sound like when completed, I highly recommend you check out my previous Chrono recordings on avenues such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, or even consider checking out the CD (First Journey : Video Game Grooves) that they derive from.

Jazz Paladin -- Corridors of Time
Jazz Paladin -- Schala's Theme
Jazz Paladin -- Gato's Song

Here we go! Wish me luck!

Chrono News / Potential Chrono Trigger CD for 2017 : Ideas Wanted
« on: November 12, 2015, 05:32:45 pm »

I have been contemplating the idea of producing an exclusively Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross CD for quite some time now, and was wondering what, if any, ideas the Chrono Trigger fanbase might be interested in. I seriously doubt that this question ever gets asked directly to the fans, so I thought this might be a unique opportunity to get to know if there is something out there that hasn't been done yet that people would like to see done with a project of such nature.

Songs perhaps? Styles? Fusions between songs? No idea is off of the table, so please let the ideas flow!

As an example of some previous Chrono Trigger work, I have a few songs on Spotify, and Youtube.

Also, feel free to check out my Facebook page

I will be sure to be adding updates to progress on Facebook as songs and ideas progress. I do also have a website, that is still under a bit of construction, but I envision that being a good source of information in the future as well as this forum!

Ideally, this CD would be ready sometime in 2017. I would like to commit to an earlier release date, but I also currently have a Castlevania CD in the works for 2016, and will be hard at work for that for quite a while.

Lastly, (and if deemed inappropriate by the mods, please feel free to remove), just a small consideration for all is that these products do take quite a bit of financial backing to make possible. For example, the most recent video game music CD I made cost quite a bit of money to produce, especially in making sure that royalties are paid to the rightful composers. So while I hate mentioning this, please feel free to check out Jazz Paladin Productions on Facebook for more updates, or view the first CD on Spotify, I-tunes,, as I really, really hate Kick Starters, or the idea of taking money for a product that does not exist yet. Each bit of support for my music that is currently out there goes directly to support future products, so if you are so inclined, thank you very much!

Here's to the prospect of new music that will flow until the End of Time!


Chrono News / 3 New Chrono Songs and a CD
« on: October 01, 2015, 10:30:16 pm »

Not too sure how proper of an avenue this is, so if deemed improper at all, my apologies in advance.

I just thought I'd share a link to a new CD I recently released. As Chrono Trigger is a big favorite at mine, I just had to release a few songs from it.

I do have a few of the songs up on Youtube, as well as on my facebook page.

There are plans for I-tunes and Spotify, as well as Amazon digital releases.

Any questions, comments, or feedback are welcome! 

Back to gaming!
