J.J. & Jeff (TG16)
|J.J. & Jeff|
J.J. & Jeff is one of the earliest TurboGrafx-16 games.
In Japan, the game was originally released as a game based on the comedy duo Kato-chan and Ken-chan. It featured a lot of toilet humor, which was removed when localized for North America.
J.J. & Jeff has a really nice score for its time. This was one of Takeaki Kunimoto's earliest games that he worked on. There are some jazzy tunes, as well as rock tracks, but even in those, you can still hear Kunimoto's jazzy elements with the chord progressions. For unknown reasons, the sound driver plays the music a microtone (1/4 step) sharp, resulting in approximately A = 450Hz.
Takeaki wrote his music on the MSX computer, which was sent to Hudson Soft, and implemented into the game by Toshiyuki Sasagawa, who implemented the music using a PC-98 computer and Music Macro Language with Takayuki Iwabuchi's sound driver.

Ripping TurboGrafx-16 music is an arduous process that is beyond the scope of this site. The music was recorded using in_vgm for Winamp.
