at the record store I used to work at, we used his "arrangement" of Ravel's
Bolero as one of our supreme examples af really bad music. In about 12
minutes, he went through everything including a cheesy synth orchestra, bad
psuedo samba,  bad ambient, slick fake hip hop and reggae, and speed metal,
all with a complete lack of anything to say. Oh, and all played with that
wonderful tone. Really, you've gotta hear this thing, it is so fabulously
rotten. Should be easy to find used.

Now I just know I'm going to get flamed by someone who loves Jordan...

type of music. Like you take two sticks, put 'em
together, make fire. You take some notes and rub 'em
together - dum, dum, dum, dum - fire, cosmic fire."
