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.
Top Rated Album. Merry Christmas
