This artist needs no introduction, but on the off chance that you actually have no idea who he is: Nujabes is Jun Seba, one of the greatest, most influential hip hop producers of all time. This is my opinion, but I know I'm in good company, here. If you're an anime fan, you will have heard some of his music in Samurai Champloo. "Nujabes" comes from reversal of the letters in his first and last name.
Seba had been active in the music scene since 1998. His latest (and third) album is "Spiritual State" released posthumously in the U.S. in February 2012. Seba died due to a car accident in February 2012 at the age of 36. The Spiritual State album consists of some tracks that had not yet been released by Seba. His death is and was a terrible blow to fans of his music. Seba was too young to go. He had so much left to offer. Many artists contributed to the Spiritual State album to ensure the release of Seba's theretofore unheard music. Below is Track #13 of that album.
As you can see, Seba's music is underlined by soulful, jazzy beats. It's the kind of music in which you can lose yourself. It takes you to far away places. At least, that's the effect that it continually has on me. I'll leave you with one of my all-time favorite tracks. This is, Kumomi, Track 4 from Seba's first solo album, "Metaphorical Music" (Aug. 2003).
Rest in peace. Your body may be gone, but your spirit shall live on in the music you left behind.
