Michel Legrand

Michel Legrand has made his fame and fortune from writing for films, but he has done significant work in jazz on an occasional basis. In 1957, he arranged a set of Dixieland and swing standards for a French orchestra (recorded on Philips), in 1958 he used three different all-star groups for the classic Legrand Jazz (with such sidemen as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Phil Woods, Herbie Mann, Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Art Farmer, and others), in 1968 he recorded a strictly jazz set with a trio and Legrand has written for albums led by Stan Getz (1971), Sarah Vaughan (1972), and on several occasions, Phil Woods. Several of his songs (such as "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life," "Watch What Happens," and "The Summer Knows") have been recorded many times by jazz musicians. ~ Scott Yanow

His album Legrand Piano is one of my all time favorites. Put it on for a rainy day and you will magically find yourself in Paris.

Summer of 42 station is not jazz. It's a light orchestral romantic soundtrack.

I was 11 yrs old in 1958 I had listened to one of my sister's records with legrand jazz jitterbug waltz playing. I was captured by this music then and there!

Mr. Legrand is one of my all-time favorites. His music soothes the soul and energizes the spirit. His music is always fresh and new.never growing old.

Been listening to this remarkable artist since I was a young lad, and today he still ranks as one of the best in his genre in my opinion. BTW, his song What are you doing the rest of your life? was the first dance song with my lovely bride at our wedding. A Toast To A master!

Remarkably versatile artist! Met him through mutual friend Jack Sheldon in L.A. Big Band Venue in late 90,s.

Love "La Vie En Rose" by Michel Legrand, on the CD: A Night Out With Verve (Box Set).

Since this is the page that came up with the song on my Pandora, I am not sure why they didn't list it in the Selected Discography.

Is the Broadway cast recording of Legrand's musical "Amour" in Pandora's library? It's really lovely (though fairly different from his more jazz stuff).
