Michel Legrand (Michel Jean Legrand, Paris, France, 24 February 1932 – 26 January 2019) was a French composer, arranger, conductor, and pianist. A prolific composer, having written over 200 film and television scores, in addition to many memorable songs, he is best known for his often haunting, jazz-tinged film music. His celebrated scores for the films of French New Wave director Jacques Demy, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967), earned Legrand his first Academy Award nominations.

The album Legrand Jazz was a result of this white-hot jazz period. In 1955, Michel Legrand branched out in a new direction, writing the music for Henri Verneuil's film Amants du Tage, under the pseudonym Lucien Legrand. But Legrand's involvement in the world of French cinema really began in earnest in the late 50s when he was caught up in the French New Wave. Working in close collaboration with a new breed of French directors, Legrand kept up a hectic non-stop schedule, composing soundtracks for up to a dozen feature films and television films a year. In the 80s, Legrand chose to devote his time and energy to jazz, forming a trio with drummer André Ceccarelli and double-bass virtuoso Marc-Michel Le Bévillon. The threesome went on to make three albums together.
