In order to fully satisfy the fans of some of the cult films with soundtracks by Japanese composer Joe Hisaishi, this XXL compilation includes extracts of soundtracks from some feature films which were already released in a 2020 volume (Dream Songs). Thus, the Kids Return theme is offered here in a live version with a larger band than in the previous outing, and the main theme of the music from Kikujiro is played here on the marimba (Summer). In addition to these two Takeshi Kitano classics, the listener is treated to the haunting melody of Miyazaki's iconic Porco Rosso cartoon—with a jazzy second half that echoes the Roaring Twenties, which form the backdrop to the film. Such a rich compilation is what is needed to really convey all the protean talent of an artist who can compose a rousing tango à la Astor Piazzolla (Tango X.T.C.), as well as minimalist music in the style of Steve Reich (DA-MA-SHI-E), and a concertante piece with a vibrant neo-romanticism (View of Silence). The present album also highlights a number of pieces from the Piano Stories project—a collection of the Maestro's records launched in 1988: the gravity of the Nocturne or the tender and mysterious Lost Sheep on the Bed. The album includes two unreleased tracks: a live version of Hana Bi and, as an opener, a new version of Kids Return (Angel Doll). © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz
