I'm not sure if many people know of these, but they've done some FF/S-E Jazz Albums!:
Some really fun variations here - It's nice to hear a non-piano version of the Zanarkand Theme.
There is a 2nd Volume but I can't find that online:
Got access to an exclusive early release of Distant Worlds V!:

I'm so gutted that I missed out on a chance to see Distant Worlds in London. It would have been incredible to see a Distant Worlds, see Susan Calloway perform, and the orchestra, etc. Plus there was a meet-up with the KupoCon community I also missed.
But I'm glad you were able to go. Did you enjoy yourself?
The new Distant Worlds album looks great too. In many ways an interesting mix.
This edition of “SQUARE ENIX JAZZ” features songs from FINAL FANTASY VII and contains 12 tracks, including the song “Cosmo Canyon” revealed during a Billboard Live session in February. All arrangements were created by series standbys, trombonist Eijiro Nakagawa and bassist Ryu Kawamura.
