This is a collection of tracks by the unparalleled Joe Hisaishi. For those who don't know, he's the composer for the movies made by Studio Ghibli and thus responsible for such gems as the soundtracks of Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Ponyo, Laputa The Castle In The Sky, Howl's Moving Castle, My Neighbour Totoro, Nausicaa Of The Valley Of Wind and dozens of other pieces. Man's a genius.
