A really wonderful collection of music penned by the legendary Michel Legrand – the French film maestro who's one of our favorite soundtrack composers ever – represented here in a beautiful assortment of lesser-known material! CD1 features tracks mostly recorded under Legrand's name – mostly from that late 60s/
early 70s stretch when his talent was burning the most brightly, and pulled from recordings for Columbia, Bell, and other labels – with a fair bit of obscure bits in the mix. CD2 features interpretations of Legrand tunes by others – a mix of singers and instrumentalists, with again
a strong focus on the late 60s/
early 70s years! Legrand titles include "The Other Side Of Midnight, "Arrivee Des Camioneurs", "La Vie De Chateau", "Paris Was Made For Lovers", "Pieces Of Dreams", "Wuthering Heights", "Dis Moi", "Theme From The Go Between", "The Summer Knows", "Happy", "Recette Pour Un Cake D'Amour", and "Hinotori". Other tracks include "I Forget The Time" by Frankie Laine, "Can You Tell The Moment" by Natalie Desay, "One At A Time" by Lena Horne, "Orson's Theme" by Andre Kostelantez, "Windmills Of Your Mind" by Swingle II, "Years Of My Youth" by Rita Reys, "Pieces Of Dreams" by Peggy Lee, "Le Chanson Des Jumelles" by Caravelli, "Once Upon A Summertime" by Carmen McRae, and "One Day" by Jack Jones.
