Music Monday

A little while ago, I happened to stumble across this lovely all-girl jazz band  on youtube. Called ‘Tokyo Brass Style’, their soft jazz covers of famous anime songs are delightfully fluffy and fun to listen to! On the other hand, for some songs, I felt that their musical arrangement seemed to slip dangerously close to elevator-quality muzak, but that’s probably because of my unfamiliarity with jazz music in general.

Here’s their cover of Gurren Lagann’s Sorairo Days. As one commenter noted, the imagery of a “1970’s Gurren Lagann!!! Kamina and Simon with DEM SIDEBURNS!’ is extra awesome.

I also enjoyed their take on the Sailor Moon Theme, although I’m not fond of  the little bridge part from 2:00 to 2:30.

Lastly, their arrangement of Joe Hisaishi’s  classic theme from Laputa: Castle in the Sky. This is my favourite out of all of these.
