In 1957, he arranged a set of and 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.

    Magnifique. Ah oui, pendant qu'on y est, si quelqu'un parvient à faire la corrélation entre M.Legrand et le rock/Johnny, qu'il me fasse signe, je lui en serait reconnaissant !!!

    One of the loveliest pieces written for film. Perfect 'love story' theme. On any solo instrument. Check out Itzak Pearlman's take on this. Almost a completely new piece. Thank you Michel.

    There are Legrand songs from the PC game Torins Passage for free download here: http://www.allowe.com/Torin/musicdownloads.htm This is kind of legal, I think, as it is the homepage of Al Lowe, the creator of Torins Passage, of Leisure Suit Larry fame.
