Talking of jazz, two animation programs in Japan are thought of. First, Neon Genesis EVANGELION is. They use Fly Me to the Moon, sung by Claire: a singer from U.K., on their ending. As some of the viewers reckon the song as a theme song of Evangelion, it is fated to jazz. And another is Lupin the Third.

The theme song of Lupin the Third was written by Ohno Yuji: a jazz pianist in Japan. Even if you knew nothing about him, you must have heard Theme from Lupin the Third.

Ohno Yuji has released many CDs in relation to Lupin the Third, as its soundtracks and a series of Lupin the Third Jazz since 1999. So CDs in large quantities wait for you when you try to collect all of albums by Ohno Yuji in relation to Lupin the Third.

But after all, Theme from Lupin the Third is the most popular in speaking of Lupin the Third. Ohno Yuji has released various types of the theme. What we describe as a recommended CD among them is Theme from Lupin the Third 2010 included in Lupin the Third –the Last Job–: a soundtrack of a homonymous TV program. When various versions of the theme have been arranged, surprisingly he has published such a beautiful arrangement as surpassing its original version.

You can enjoy this album as an album of jazz. Because the songs, like Hono no Takaramono, are included although they are not used in the TV program. The CD is apart from a homonymous TV program when that is its soundtrack. Then that makes you feel its sense of unity as a jazz album.

Ohno Yuji was born in 1941. Over again, he shows his vitality and gift in this soundtrack of Lupin the Third.
