Hello and welcome!
My fourth album as a leader was just released on April 3rd, the Glenn Makos Quartet: The Michel Legrand Project (Stop Time Records). Joining me are Craig Yaremko on soprano, alto sax and flute, Joe Fitzgerald on bass, and Gene Lewin on drums. We re-examine the music of a man known not only as a film composer, arranger, and songwriter, but also as an accomplished jazz pianist.
“Outside of some well stocked, under packaged recent box sets, Legrand hasn’t been getting the love he should and Makos and his pals stand to correct that. Taking some prime bits of the Legrand canon to some new places, Makos uses his big band chops to take this combo to a big sound and feel. A welcome pairing, Makos ought to get some of the nu retro divas putting their thinking caps on and giving Cole Porter a rest for a while. Well done.”
