Platina Jazz ~Anime Standards Vol.3~ Released February 8, 2012

If you were to read our reviews, you’ll find that we have been taken in by Rasmus Faber and his team’s jazz arrangements of popular anime themes, namely, through the albums Platina Jazz ~Anime Standards Vol. 1~ and Platina Jazz ~Anime Standards Vol. 2~. The project seemed like a curiosity the first time we heard about it, but credit goes to Mr. Faber for delivering such excellent results.

So with that in mind, we’re delighted to announce that the Platina Jazz series still continues with the release of Volume 3 on February 8, 2012. The tracklist features such themes from series as Clannad, Trigun, Spice and Wolf, and Wolf’s Rain. A preview of one of the pieces, “half” from Rurouni Kenshin has been posted to the Platina Jazz Youtube page and is featured below. People looking to preorder the album can do so at CDJapan.
