Jazz music is often called "music of night." However, "Ghibli Meets Jazz" series by Tateishi Kazumi Trio are clearly "music of daytime." And it's also jazz of Tateishi Kazumi after all.

It's quietly difficult to give a district definition of music of daytime, because that is almost meant by something sensuous. There is no help for it, therefore, when you say you can't get it right. In rock music, stadium rock is guessed to be closer to "music of daytime" than live house rock.

~Beautiful Songs~
"We have produced anime movies for children all the time" said Miyazaki Hayao, a representative director of Studio Ghibli. Well, it means the Ghibli anime songs Tateishi Trio covered were originally made for children. The jazz children can enjoy. That's nothing but music of daytime, you know.

Actually, it's said children paraded to the music when Tateishi Trio played some songs at a shopping center. Moreover, they say that the sales got up because their live performance on the radio wave had been well-received. I see.

Played the CD. Listened to beautiful melodies and mature plays. The trio consists of Tateishi Kazumi on piano, Sato Shinobu on bass and Suzuki Mao on drums. They insist each other, but nobody boldly modifies the original songs. It means they keep hospitality for those who don't know about Ghibli films at all, since you can enjoy the songs themselves even if you were unfamiliar with the movies. My opinion says "いのちの名前" is so nice.

~Memorable Songs~
Some may take a dim view on the two albums, saying the songs include no originality. I don't deny. But Tateishi became a musician because of his crazy love for movie soundtrack songs. It must be a folly for him to modify the original songs extremely just for showing his originality. In the sense, the jazz of Tateishi can be found at the two albums. There is no accounting for tastes, of course.

My impression says, however, it includes too much a disc. I got tired on the way. I wish he could have planned more politely.
