It’s safe to say that anime has some of the most bomb soundtracks ever. I mean, the story lines are epic as fuck, so the creators need to match that craziness with banging beats. From the killer hip-hop intro from Samurai Champloo to the almost frightening metal of Deathnote, if there was a showdown between American and Japanese cartoon music, the U.S.A. would definitely lose. That being said, Cowboy Bebop boasted one of the finest soundtracks to emerge from anime. The jazz-fusion songs gave the science fiction-spaghetti Western series a spice that pulled it all together. If you dug the show, you might want to get down to Carmen’s de la Calle, where Rene Saenz will team up with other local jazz hotshots Mark Little, Kara Stevens, Andrew Bergmann and Kory Cook to recreate Cowboy Bebop’s distinctive sound.
