Product Description

Michel Legrand-Archi-Cordes-FRENCH JAZZ GROOVES-NEW CD

Michel Legrand-




One of the first moments of grooviness from Michel Legrand in the 60s -- a set that takes his older orchestral style and fits it to a really mod set of rhythms!

The album's filled with jaunty grooves -- leaping sort of numbers that almost have a "yeh yeh" French pop approach, but which are instrumental throughout -- topped with these swirling strings that step along at a clip to match the rhythms, and backed with lots of groovy organ from Legrand, and guitar from the legendary Elek Bacsik!

There's even some wordless vocals scatting through the mix -- and the sound's unlike anything else that Legrand ever did -- a great precursor to his famous soundtracks, but a real standout record as well.

 Titles include the famous "Di Gue Ding Ding" -- a cut you'll recognize right away -- plus "Motor City", "Bandol", "Alcatraz", "Da We Da", "Monkey Business", "Manhattan Stroll", "Hi Girls", "Come Ray & Come Charles", and "Noix De Coco".
