Description

Two albums on one disc, deluxe digipak with 20-page booklet and additional line notes by Penguin Guide to Jazz's writer Brian Morton.

Arranged & conducted by MICHEL LEGRAND. Featuring MILES DAVIS (tp), JOHN COLTRANE (ts), BEN WEBSTER (ts), PHIL WOODS (as), BILL EVANS (p), PAUL CHAMBERS (b), among others. Recorded New York, June 1958.

"This isn't modern jazz, or swing, or bop, or New Thing; this is Legrand jazz, its personality as clearly stamped as if he were the main solo voice. Indeed, one realises from listening to these tracks again that for the Frenchman, the orchestra was his instrument." - DOWN BEAT

"A flamboyant...full of invention. The most beautiful standards, from John Lewis' 'Django' and Django Reinhardt's 'Nuages,' to Bix Beiderbecke's 'In a Mist' and Fats Waller's 'The Jitterbug Waltz," were all delightfully reinvented by these incredible musicians." - JAZZ MAGAZINE
