"Legrand Tour: The Music of Michel Legrand"
 
Michel Legrand is the legendary film composer who wrote the scores to the film musicals “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,” “Young Girls of Rochefort” and “Yentl,” as well as countless film scores and themes, most notably with the filmmaker Jacques Demy. Some of his hit songs taken from films include “What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life,” “Where Is It Written?,” “Watch What Happens,” “The Windmills Of Your Mind,” “I Will Wait For You,” “Sweet Gingerbread Man,” and ‘You Must Believe In Spring.” Michel Legrand won three Academy Awards, five Grammy Awards and ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Lifetime Achievement Award. The lyricists he’s worked with include Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Norman Gimbel, Sheldon Harnick, Hal David and Earl Brown. The gorgeous arrangements in “Le Grand Tour” are by Tex Arnold, who plays piano. The wonderful Jon Burr is on bass.
