Michel Legrand - After the Rain

An Amazing Pablo Jazz Album You Never Heard Of

  (Item #: legraafter_2013) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This album is PURE MAGIC! I know of no other jazz album like it. It's lyrical and moody, yet comes to life at a moment's notice when the horn players start to feel the spirit. If you're familiar with the music he wrote for The Thomas Crown Affair (he won an Academy Award for "Windmills of Your Mind"), you may have a good feel for subtle, impressionistic, often moody quality of After the Rain . Or check it out on youtube (while trying to imagine the sound being at least one million times better).

Michel Legrand - Legrand Jazz

Our Mono Shootout Winner from 2007

  (Item #: legralegra_2007) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This original Six Eye Mono Hot Stamper is THE NEW ALL-TIME CHAMPION LEGRAND JAZZ! It has a LIFE and IMMEDIACY that is not usually found on any pressing of this album -- mono or stereo. It’s the kind of difference that can be heard from another room.

Michel Legrand - Legrand Jazz

Our Stereo Shootout Winner from 2017

  (Item #: legralegra_2017) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Jazz Hall of Fame.

This album is more common in mono than stereo, but we found the sound of the mono pressing we played seriously wanting. It's dramatically smaller and more squawky and crude than even the worst of the stereo pressings we played.

We had a copy we liked years ago but that was years ago. We don't have that copy anymore and we don't have a stereo that sounds the way our old one did either. Here are some other records that we don't think sound very good in MONO.

What We Listen For:

Brass Timbre and Tonality

  (Item #: legralegra_listen) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises.

This 2005 commentary discusses how easy it is to be fooled by tweaks that seem to offer more transparency and detail at the expense of weight and heft. It took the brass on this album to set me straight.
