This CD appears to be focused on the "Salaryman" series that was popular in Japan. The music here is a good mix of lighthearted romps, some action music and a variety of other styles. Track #1 is a suite of lighthearted, action oriented music. Track #3 is reminiscent of the music in Hollywood comedies of the 1930's & 1940's. Track #5 is another suite of music that starts with a light, Parisian sound. It then goes into a jazz oriented Can-Can sounding number and ends sounding like rock music from 1960's Hollywood Beach Party movies. Track #6 has a spaghetti western feel to it. All the rest of the tracks run a gamut of styles with most being lighthearted or action oriented.
This was an enjoyable CD to listen to. It would be a good CD to have playing in the background as you work around the house or office. A few toe tappers here and there but nothing heavy.
