A beautiful collaboration – featuring these sublime readings of the music of Michel Legrand – arranged by the maestro himself, and featuring a mix of Brazilian jazz styles in the instrumentation!

Titles include "How Do You Keep The Music Playing", "Auto Retrato", "Canto De Ossanha", "His Eyes Her Eyes", "The Way She Makes Me Feel", and "Passos E Assovios".

✨✧ Sarah Vaughan & Michel LegrandOrchestra Arranged & Conducted By Michel Legrand ... CD
Mainstream/Solid (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful collaboration between Sarah Vaughan and Michel Legrand – and easily one of Sarah's greatest albums of the 70s! As he was doing with other singers at the time, Legrand helps Vaughan hit a new level of sophistication here – bringing in tunes that really get past simple pop and older standards, with adult themes supported by equally mature backings – filled with rich colors and complicated tones developed over Legrand's great work on film scores. Almost all tunes are originals by Michel – many pulled from his film work – and he also scored the arrangements here, working with the orchestra in a swirling blend of strings and jazz. Titles include "I Will Say Goodbye", "Summer Me Winter Me", "His Eyes Her Eyes", "Wave", "Blue Green Grey & Gone", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Hands Of Time", "The Summer Knows", and "Once You've Been In Love".

✨✧ Quire (Christine Legrand)Quire ... LP
RCA, 1976. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A very groovy little record! Quire is a harmony group led by Christine Legrand – sister of Michel Legrand, and ex-member of similar groups The Swingle Singers and Les Double Six. The music on the set is very much like that of the latter – in that it's harmony vocal versions of famous jazz tunes, done in an instrument-less style that recalls the work of the Swingles. The sound is quite odd, but wonderful – handled with the dreamy delightful style we've always come to love in Christine's work. Titles include "Lullaby Of Birdland", "Blue Rondo A La Turk", "Django", "Misty", "Body & Soul", and "Waltz For Debby". LP, Vinyl record album

Norma WinstoneDescansado – Songs For Films ... CD
ECM (Germany), 2018. New Copy ... $16.99 18.99
Norma Winstone won us on this album right away – with a leadoff take on Michel Legrand's "His Eyes Her Eyes" – which is then followed by a range of well-selected songs from film soundtracks! In keeping with Winstone's long legacy in music, the choices and presentation are somewhat offbeat – but there's also maybe more song structure and straight vocals here than some of Norma's more experimental records – handled with a voice that has even more feeling and experience than decades past, which really makes a little bit of lyric go a long way! The core trio features Glauco Venier on piano and Klaus Gesing on soprano sax and bass clarinet – and the album also features some work by Mario Brunello on cello and Helge Andreas Norbakken on percussion. Titles include "His Eyes Her Eyes", "Malena", "Lisbon Story", "Vivre Sa Vie", "Descansado", "What Is A Youth", "Il Postino", "Theme From Taxi Driver", "Amarcord", and "Meryton Town Hall". CD

✨✧ Sarah VaughanFeelin Good ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Sarah Vaughn hit a very groovy new style on her handful of records for the Mainstream label in the early 70s – a new approach that offered her amazing voice a way to stretch out with some of the new sophistication of the time! The arrangements are still jazz, but they've taken a direction that other younger singers, like Nancy Wilson, were following as the decade began – maybe more adult themes in the lyrics, and a way of balancing out the larger charts without ever getting in the way of the singer – which is especially important here, in the way that the album demonstrates that phrasing that not only made Sarah so unique at the start, but which got even more amazing as the years moved on. The arrangers are a hip lot who are definitely up to the job – and include Michel Legrand, Peter Matz, and Jack Elliott – on titles that include "Run To Me", "And The Feeling's Good", "Just A Little Lovin", "Deep In The Night", "When You Think Of It", and a nice take on "Easy Evil".
