FEBRUARY 24

MICHEL LEGRAND + JOANIE SOMMERS

 1932 Michel Jean Legrand (born February 24, 1932, in Bécon-les-Bruyères in the Paris suburbs) is a Franco-Armenian musical composer, arranger, conductor, and pianist. His father Raymond Legrand was a conductor and composer renowned for hits such as Irma la douce and his mother, Marcelle Der Mikaëlian (sister of conductor Jacques Hélian), who married Legrand in 1929, was descended from the Armenian bourgeoisie. His niece, Victoria Legrand, is a member of the American dream pop band Beach House. Legrand is probably best-known for his often haunting film music and scores, such as The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) and The Thomas Crown Affair (1968), which features the song "The Windmills of Your Mind".
