The Music of Studio Ghibli

On October 5th, the Jazz trio named “Off the Cliff” performed the music of Studio Ghibli live at the Blue Note Tokyo. The event was a great success, and the trio played to a full house. The music of Studio Ghibli is some of the most beautiful and evocative music ever written, and it was a pleasure to see it performed live.

Some of the most popular Studio Ghibli songs include “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin,” “Be Our Guest” from “Beauty and the Beast,” “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from “The Lion King,” “Circle of Life” from “The Lion King,” and “Once Upon a Dream” from “Sleeping Beauty.”

How does the Jazz Trio’s interpretation of these songs compare to the originals?

The Jazz trio’s interpretations of these songs are very compareable to the originals. The musicianship is exceptional, and they have done a great job of capturing the spirit and feel of the original compositions. The arrangements are also very faithful to the originals, so fans of the Studio Ghibli soundtracks will likely enjoy this album.


The album ends with a bang, not a whimper. The trio tackles “The Battle of Tenrou Island” from Fairy Tail, initially released in 2011. It’s a fitting conclusion to the album, as the song is an electrifying and intense battle theme. The band brings the same level of energy and excitement to the performance, making for an exhilarating listen.
