"K.K. Jazz" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It is a lively, quick-paced song that incorporates a brushes drum set, a synthesizer, a walking upright bass, and a picked electric guitar. The melody bears some resemblance to that of "Lazy Bird" from John Coltrane's album Blue Train.

Album cover[edit]

Album cover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The album cover for "K.K. Jazz" features K.K. Slider playing an electric guitar. The background is black, and K.K. is shaded with a blue color effect. The bottom half of the New Horizons album cover is a cropped version of the New Leaf album cover, with the top half being blue. The album cover may be a reference to the album covers of the popular jazz label, Blue Note Records, which used distinctive bold fonts and monochrome, screentoned photographs. In New Horizons, it particularly resembles the blue frame of the album "Idle Moments" by Blue Note jazz guitarist Grant Green, and features a pastiche of the Blue Note logo as well. A similarly Blue Note-inspired cover and logo also appear on "Drivin'."
