Michel Legrand- I Love Paris

Merry Christmas.  Here I am with an excellent album from one of my favorites.  This was in a  box of records I got from a friend of mine.  On a personal level, as I am writing this three days before Christmas, I am getting back to keeping these a bit more current.  Do not get me wrong.  I enjoyed doing these posts in advance.  However, it is a bit hard to keep up on current trends when I am writing about things that happened three months ago.

If you have been reading this blog, you may be saying, what gives?  Haven’t you posted this album before?  Well yes, in a way.  I posted the New I Love Paris earlier this year.  Well, I was under the impression that this was the first work, although it is on the Columbia’s budget label Harmony.  However, upon listing, the songs sound very similar.  Well, since I am writing this three days before Christmas, I really do not want to put much effort into this. 

Plus it is Christmas and I have other ventures to get on to.  So if you want to learn more about this, I would suggest finding out via Google. You can also read the original post I did on the New album.  There is a back story there and I am just to tired to go any further.  It is interesting to note that Legrand originally did this album as a quick money maker and  arranged/conducted it on the fly.  His result was a masterpiece.

For a sample, I went with “Paris Canaille” and one of my favorites, “Autumn Leaves”.

Top Rated Album.  Merry  Christmas
