Yuji Ohno is a Japanese jazz musician born in 1941. He’s principally known for his musical scoring of Japanese anime-television series, of which Lupin The Third and the feature film The Castle of Cagliostro are his most well known works. Ohno is also well-known as a member of a jazz trio with bassist Miroslav Vitous and drummer Lenny White.
The tracks collected here, by Victory, for “Lupin The Third: TV Special” are oozing with seventies cool, exemplified by opener ‘Theme From Lupin III’: the snares shuffle, the pianos tease and the upright bass walks with all the swagger of a French master thief.
Great funky tunes from the Japanese jazz master!
