Anime Juke Box - Grace - Jin Roh

Composer Hajime Mizoguchi serves up an interesting score for the film Jin Roh: The Wolf Brigade. For the most part it is a low key score, using a mix of orchestral and electronic elements. There are some interesting action cues and for the more touching scenes Mizoguchi serves up the right emotions. But the cue that makes the score is the end credits track called "Grace" or "Grace - Jin-Roh - Omega".

In this cue Mizoguchi takes his main theme, adds female vocals by Gabriela Robin (aka Yoko Kanno). Kanno also performs the piano in this track. It's a lovely piece, one of my favorites featuring Kanno's singing.
