Today artist Sean Schafianski has released a selection tracks from Persona 5 called The Mementos Sessions. This is five track compilation is heavily inspired by 1970s funk style. These tracks include a number of solos for extra variety and interest. This artist has done several Jazz albums in the past for such titles as NieR, Breath of Fire, and more.
From the press release:
“This project is in celebration of the five-year anniversary of Persona 5 and it honors the music of Shoji Meguro and the Atlus Sound Team,” comments arranger Sean Schafianski. “I’ve loved every Persona game (and their soundtracks) since they were released in 1996, so this is also my way of giving back. I chose some of the most iconic tracks for this EP as well as a couple pieces that I think deserved some more attention. I tried to keep as true to the original material as possible while throwing in some of my own flair and sonic signature. It was such a privilege to work with so many talented artists from Berklee on this album. They pushed me creatively and contributed greatly to the parts that differ from the original compositions. This project really is a labor of love from a lot of people who put in tremendous work over the past year. I’m overjoyed to share it with everyone!”
