On October 18, 2011, Ghostlight Records released the long-awaited Legrand Affair — an exciting collaboration between Melissa and multi-Oscar winning film/jazz/pop composer Michel Legrand, one of Melissa’s musical idols, who conducted, arranged and wrote new material for Melissa with Alan and Marilyn Bergman, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone. It was recorded with a 100-piece pop symphony in Brussels, and a superlative jazz rhythm section of Steve Gadd and David Finck.
“…spectacularly beautiful new album.” – Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal
“Six years in the making, this thrilling, expansive, 15-song release is destined to become nothing less than epic.” – Edge Magazine, CD Review
Melissa also appears on a beautiful 15-disc Legrand anthology singing “Maybe Someone Dreamed Us”, along with other vocalists including Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughn, and Tony Bennett. It is available on Amazon.
