“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.”
PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ.
“A flamboyant 33-rpm 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.”
