Trivia:

His name came from Quincy Jones. The kanji for "Hisaishi" could be read as "Kuishi," which is close to the Japanese pronunciation of "Quincy," which, however, would be pronounced "Kuinshî," and "Joe," of course, came from "Jones." Hisaishi chose this name himself when he needed a stage name. See more »

Trademark:

Epic scores.

Star Sign:
