"Les Demoiselles de Rochefort"/"The Young Girls Of Rochefort" (1967) - Michel Legrand

If you are a fan of Michel Legrand, especially his music of the mid to late sixties, then this is for you. The music is very romantic and a little nostalgic, and varied; the soundtrack featurs both jazz-tunes and rumba. My favourites are "Nous voyageons de ville en ville" and "Marins, amis, amants ou maris", songs that makes you wanna dance.
I would recommend this album to jazz fans and audiences who loved "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg"/"The Umbrellas of Cherbourg", the excellent movie by Jacques Demy from the 60's. We have the same composer here, but his creation does not reach the beauty and romanticism of the former. It has the same operatic structure as "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg"/"The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" but the themes are not so catchy as those. Anyhow, it's a good album, wonderfully recorded.
