New things to say
This album comprises eight original songs by Alexander L’Estrange and seven – one recorded in two different versions – by French composer Michel Legrand.
Legrand’s songs have been recorded by many of the greatest singers in the business including Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and, more recently, Jamie Cullum. In this, the year of Legrand’s 80th birthday, L’Estranges in the Night put their stamp on seven of these much-loved songs with their signature-style multi-layered vocals, often accompanied by only double bass or piano, and with echoes of some of their own musical heroes: Carole King, James Taylor, Bill Evans and Joni Mitchell, as well as close-harmony vocal groups of the past half century.
