Jaga wa hashitta might mean "jaguar ran" in Japanese. It's also the name of a movie whose music, by Masahiko Sato and Toshiyuki Miyama & New Herd, is the 298th Soundtrack of the Week.

Stylistically it's like a tour of popular late-'60s sounds. Bossa, lounge, blaring horns, funky drums, echoes of Burt Bacharach, a rather blatant imitation of side one of Miles Davis's In a Silent Way, dramatic underscore as required.

I'm intrigued. I'd like to see the movie, whatever it is.
