The Seatbelts is a Japanese jazz band led by composer and instrumentalist Kanno Yoko. They are famous for their music used for the soundtrack for the anime Cowboy Bebop. The style of music from the show is quite varied, from jazz to big band to rock 'n roll. The band has regrouped recently to preform the soundtrack for a new Cowboy Bebop videogame.
