Yoko Kanno - Jazz & Funk & Anime soundtrack

How much do you know about Anime music? Probably as much as I did before I read this:
"Yoko Kanno is the mind behind some of the finest anime music out there. Lucky for me, in college I lived down the hall from an anime fan. As the horns from the intro theme song to the popular Cowboy Bepop blared out, I crept down the hall to investigate. After falling in love with a dynamic and unpredictable arrangement, I delve deeper into the songwriter. I found a breadth of vocal and melodic writing in a wide span of genres."
Below is a good sampling of her work:
The Seatbelts - Tank!
Yoko Kanno - Dreams In A Pie
