Legrand Off the Beaten Track
Sharon anegg (vocals) | heimo trixner (guitar, arrangements) | oliver steger (bass, arrangement on track 5) The French composer, arranger and pianist, Michel Legrand, became world-famous with his award-winning film scores to 'Yentl', 'The Thomas Crown Affair' and 'The Umbrellas Of Cherbourg'. His songs have been performed by Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughan, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Maurice Chevalier and many others. Sharon's CD presents Legrand's best songs in a fresh jazz-inspired context: an ear-opener for past, present and future Legrand fans. Leila Thigpen says about the CD: 'If you're a fan of Michel Legrand, you'll marvel at the modern approach these musicians take with his compositions. If you're one who has scoffed at the old fashioned tunes, you'll be delighted with the surprising arrangements and the velvet voice of Sharon that weaves a thread through them all.'
