If you like jazz, go THERE for a nice animation clip.

Red block of destruction! Oh no!!

Coltraine's the man.

That was neat.

Has anyone seen Begone Dull Care by Norman Maclaren? He does a similar kind of thing in that, in terms of, I guess, expressionistically animating to a jazz soundtrack (in his case, Oscar Peterson). It's pretty awesome.

About to make it four
Damn, I love Giant Steps.

Hey, where's the rest of the song?! :P

That was seriously awesome though. Now, if someone could do a Fantasia-like project set to jazz ...

Great stuff! I always thought "Giant Steps" would be a great soundtrack for an animated short (though I imagined giant robots, nothing as elegant as this.)

Man, that was cool. That was super cool. I really like how the animator played on Coltrane's bends and shouts on his saxophone. My only complaint: too short!

Wasn't too impressed at first. But it became very cool, very quickly and I was hooked. 8)
