iTunes Review

Broadway songstress Melissa Errico pays homage to legendary film composer Michel Legrand on this sumptuously recorded set. Many of these songs—arranged and conducted by Legrand and performed by the 100-piece Brussels Philharmonic–are taken from classic films of the ‘60s and ‘70s and evoke a long-lost era of sophisticated passion. Surrounded by billowing orchestrations, Errico fills such familiar tunes as “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “I Will Wait for You,” and “What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?” with palpable feeling, exploring the poetic nuances of each lyric. Her version of “The Summer Knows” (the end-title theme from Summer of ‘42) lets her shine in an especially seductive performance. The album digs deep into Legrand’s catalog to reinterpret evergreen numbers like the haunting “Martina,” the starry-eyed “I Was Born to Love You,” and the bittersweet “Once Upon a Summertime.” Producer Phil Ramone does justice to both the richness of Legrand’s music and the intimate, caressing qualities of Errico’s voice.

Customer Reviews

Legrand Errico

This is an exceptional recording by two artists so in tune with each other. Every composer should have be as lucky as Legrand to have an artist like Errico to sing his songs.

A mixed bag

Legrand has always been a fine composer, but a lousy orchestrator. Here his typically dense (and over-long) arrangements practically drown poor Errico's smooth but somewhat flat vocals. What's needed to match Legrand is someone with a far richer and dramatic voice. Legrand himself could never sing and I found his vocals in "Once Upon a Summertime" just silly.
