Joining easy listening, chitpune and lounge music volumes, Capcom's second installment in the Okami Arrangement Collection series is Jazz Arrangement Collection. The eleven-track compilation features arrangements by multi-instrumentalist Zac Zinger, a co-composer on Street Fighter V.

The cover album reinterprets "Reset," "Rising Sun" and other compositions by Rei Kondoh, Hiroshi Yamaguchi and Masami Ueda through the use of jazz instruments and traditional Japanese elements, incorporating saxophone, flute, clarinet and shakuhachi. The Okami Jazz Arrangement Collection is available for streaming through the Apple Music platform.

From the artist bio:
A multi-talented performer, Zac plays saxophones, flute, clarinet, shakuhachi, EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument), and a host of ethnic flutes. He has recorded woodwinds for the soundtracks of Final Fantasy XV: Assasin's Festival, Just Cause 4, Street Fighter V, RWBY, Lazer Team, Moonlight Blade OL, and many more. He has also had the pleasure of performing in twelve countries with the likes of Nobuo Uematsu, the 8-bit Big Band, Adam Neely’s Jazz School, Anat Cohen, Mario Frangoulis, and Wataru Hokoyama.
