I love her music, especially in Cowboy Bebop. Yoko Kanno, you are a musical genius! I was was a director of an animated series, I'd hire this lovely lady. I believe that cartoons/anime alike need to have more high-end music that this lady makes.

A God of Music, Composing, Arranging.
Really appreciate her work on the Macross Frontier Songs!

Tank! is such a classic. I will never forget Cowboy Bebop because of that piece.
