Legrand Jazz features Michel Legrand with 31 of America's greatest jazzmen featuring Miles Davis.

In 1962, the best jazz musicians in America were brought together by a 27-year old French compositional prodigy. The record they made is a legendary mix of Gaelic lyricism and a simmering jazz soul.

Legrand Jazz was greeted by an enthusiastic review in the magazine Down Beat. Dom Cerulli awarded it five stars out of a possible five.

Audiophile Quality Hybrid SACD!
Features Performances by John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Ben Webster & 27 More Jazz Greats! The greatest assembly of musical talent ever on one album!

In 1958, a young, successful French composer-arranger with a major infatuation on American jazz, worked his way to New York and convinced the very best players of the time to record an album of largely jazz standards. Michel Legrand would go on to win numerous prizes and accolades (3 Oscars, 5 Grammies, 2 Palmes D’or, etc.), but little of what followed matched the sheer brilliance of Legrand Jazz. 

Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Ben Webster, Phil Woods and practically every other session man in town signed up for sessions with Legrand to record his idiosyncratic arrangements of standards (“Django”, “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore”, “Night in Tunisia”, etc.). Instead of regurgitating then current bop styles, he reinvented the very nature of orchestral jazz band repertoire to make a unique and forward-looking statement on the genre. 

The sound of Impex’s SACD  preserves the wide soundstage of late 50’s Columbia recordings while creating intimate spaces between players on the stage for maximum definition. This rare, highly-praised recording has never sounded as good as it does now. Go big with Legrand Jazz.
