Two Original Albums + Bonus Tracks On 180g Vinyl Double LP!

Michel Legrand's first "homage" to the "capital city" was I Love Paris of 1954 which became a best-selling LP in the U.S. and started the vogue for albums of continental music. It is a musical picture of Paris in the fifties. Legrand blends 16 songs (LP-1) together into a sort of suite, beginning with church bells chiming in the square, then taking off on a musical journey around the city. On the 1956 album Bonjour Paris, Legrand's orchestra is in fine form as they work through a mix of French favorites, like Edith Piaf's "La Vie En Rose" & "Hymn to Love" and Charles Trenet's "La Mer". The real highlights come when Legrand turns postmodern (at such an early date) with "cut-up" renditions of "The Poor People of Paris" and the Nat 'King' Cole classic "Two Loves Have I".
