Default RIP Michel Legrand

Sad news ... a giant has left us.

A legendary French film composer and songwriter, he was the master of crafting beautiful, unforgettable melodies, sophisticated orchestration, and top it off was a wonderful pianist and vocalist as well.

Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, Le Mans, The Summer of 42 ... and it goes on.

Windmills of Your Mind .. and memorable others.

Thank-you for special times, though decades, which I (and so many) treasure.
