✨✧ Pierre JansenSoundtracks To Claude Chabrol Films (Le Boucher/Landru/La Decade Prodigieuse/Que La Bete Meure/Docteur Popaul) ... CD
Universal (France), 1960s/1970s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Really dark work from composer Pierre Jansen – a CD that collects tracks written for the films of Claude Chabrol, a range of 60s and early 70s French thrillers with a moody, pessimistic feel. Most tracks have off-kilter orchestrations with occasional evocative solo instrument passages – a bit like thriller work by Morricone, but with less warmth and less of the fleeting moments of beauty that can make Morricone's darkest moments still sparkle at times. Titles include "Le Boucher", "Popaul Melomane", "Juste Avant La Nuit", "Les Amants De Munich", "Que La Bete Meure", and the extended "Symphonie Concertante Pour Orgue Piano Et Orchestre" from the film La Decade Prodidieuse.

✨✧ Michel LegrandLes Demoiselles De Rochefort (Young Girls of Rochefort) (50th Anniversary 5CD set) ... CD
Universal (France), 1966. New Copy 5CD ... Out Of Stock
A dream come true – a special 5CD box set, based around one of our favorite soundtracks ever – with a huge amount of added music! The core score is presented on CDs 1 and 2 – fantastic music from the film Les Demoiselles De Rochefort (aka Young Girls Of Rochefort) – a jazzy swinging ode to love found and love lost – all penned by the legendary Michel Legrand! The work was composed in collaboration with director Jacques Demy for his 1966 film of the same name – and, like the previous Demy/Legrand collaboration, Umbrellas Of Cherbourg, the movie's a story in song – one that has much of the dialogue presented as sung lyrics to the tunes. The mode takes off from a Hollywood musical style, and pushes the genre into territory that's much hipper, very French, and with a soaring approach that's filled with plenty of mod 60s jazz grooves. Legrand's genius has never sparkled so brightly – and his ability to interweave different themes, stories, and grooves is simply amazing! This double-length set presents the expanded original score – with many songs that were not on the original single version of the soundtrack, plus key bits of dialogue to help transition the tunes. Titles include "Chanson Des Jumelles", "Chanson De Delphine", "Nous Voyageons De Ville En Ville", "Chanson D'Andy", "La Femme Coupee En Morceaux", and "Marins Amis Amants Ou Maris". CD2 also features 11 more tracks – the Instrumental version of the score, directed by Legrand in 1966. CD3 features a beautiful English Language version – with the voices of Jackie Ward, Sue Allen, Earl Brown, and others – all singing English versions of the songs, done by Earl Brown and Julian More. CD4 features work tracks that are wonderful – many with just Legrand at the piano and singing lyrics, others with orchestral tracks – a total of 21 tracks in all. CD5 features remakes and other versions of songs from the film – done by Bud Shank, Chico & The Gypsies, Johnny Griffin, Phil Woods, Trotter Trio, Brigitte, Claude Parent, Bill Evans, Yuri Buenaventura, and others. The whole thing comes with a huge booklet of notes – with lots of information on the film and its music. CD
