Song of the Day #144

Song of the Day: Images, an extraordinary Michel Legrand orchestral title track in three movements, spotlights the remarkable Phil Woods on alto saxophone and Legrand on piano. This one runs the gamut from hip to romantic to avant garde to a climax that blows a hole through the roof. Featuring amazing unison lines, breathtaking improvisation, and virtuoso performance, it won and deserved a 1976 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition.
