Hirano Aya, Jazz Singer!?

I just heard Aya's song on the third character song CD for the anime Sumomomo Momomo. Now she's a jazz singer. She keeps surprising me.



"Flying Horse, Uma Kamen Love Theme" features a lot of English and a male singer/group called LotusJuice. Aya not only has both Japanese and English scat passages, but really uses the full range and strength of her voice. At first, I felt she wasn't quite getting it, but when she started to soar and dive, around the one-minute mark, and then especially after the four-minute mark, I was amazed.

When she said in her blog that she liked Shiina Ringo, I wondered when we'd ever hear it. Maybe this is the beginning. Perhaps she is finding a style that suits her: wild, free riffing. Here and in the very different case of the Lucky Star ED collection, she's at her best when she goes off into wild invention.



I believe the photo above left shows her at the recording session for this song, in May for a June release. In her blog, she profusely thanked the staff for getting her such a "sexy" song. The photo above right is a recent shot of her "as Angela Aki," as she said in her blog.

Sumomomo Momomo Character Song CD3 is available from amazon.co.jp for ¥1500. You can sample the song on YouTube.

I wonder when did they start to think she could sing jazz. It's pretty impressive, I'll say. Though, I remember that there was a light jazz remix of one of her Etou Mei character songs that sound pretty good. I wonder...

Hirano Aya shows us her talents again. She never ceases to amaze me. ;P

Her English kinda makes me giggle, but the song is very well done. It feels as if she's even older than she really is...that, or it might just be because of the fact that I've been hearing her as Haruhi and Konata WAY too many times in one day.
