Toshiyuki Honda: 茄子 アンダルシアの夏

Hey everyone! Hope you are all well. I am back and ready to post!

I came upon this by accident while looking through torrents. This is a Honda composed soundtrack for the 2003 anime feature "茄子 アンダルシアの夏". I unfortunately have never seen the film, but it is directed by prolific animator Kitarō Kōsaka who has worked on nearly every Studio Ghibli feature, Akira, Angel's Egg and two of my favorite anime/manga series, Naoki Urasawa's Monster and Master Keaton.

The film takes place in Spain, following a cyclist who is competing in the Vuelta a España. The music follows suit with a majority of the album having high energy tracks with a strong latin flare. Have no fear fans of Honda's however, for there are several tracks highlighting his fabulous saxophone playing as well. Highly recommended. Enjoy!
