REVIEW

January 10, 2007

If you enjoy Jazz then you will really enjoy this CD. Even if you only occasionally foray into Jazz music I think you'll enjoy this first effort at scoring a movie by Naruyoshi Kikuchi. There is a wide variety here both of styles, tempos and instruments but I thoroughly enjoyed all the tracks on this CD even though I was surprised to hear an instrumental version of John Lennon's "Happy X'mas (War Is Over)". Having never seen this 2005 Japanese movie called "Daiteiden no yoru ni", "Wait Until Dark" in English, I have no idea how that song fits into a film about a Tokyo blackout. The CD doesn't need the visuals as it's a great listening experience on it's own.
