Ron Legrand Biography & Facts
Sarah Vaughan with Michel Legrand is a 1972 studio album by Sarah Vaughan, arranged by Michel Legrand.
The ten songs on the original LP album were composed by Legrand with lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman. Some reissues have included two bonus tracks arranged and conducted by Legrand but composed by others.
Legrand won the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) at the 15th Annual Grammy Awards for his arrangement of "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?".
The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album three stars and said that the album was "a meeting that worked better than anyone might expect. Vaughan was still her dynamic, charismatic vocal self, while Legrand didn't obscure or dilute her singing, and also effectively supported her in his own way".
