Legrand's "The Other Side of the Wind" is mentioned favorably in several reviews I've read. The consensus seems to be that it's an excellent jazz score.

I would be surprised otherwise. Looking forward to hear it.

20 cds!?!?

20 is nothing compared to a lot of the sets classical and jazz labels are putting out, clearly seeing the end of the road for the CD format (or assuming it anyway). Just subscribing to various Warner Youtube channels you see trailers for set after set for this performer and that orchestra (and this isn't even mentioning the mammoths sets for composers, but that's a little bit of a different thing really)

...And just a reminder - Michel Legrand is in concert in London on Tuesday the 20th September at 7.30. A few tickets are still available. I am particularly looking forward to hearing music for The Scoundrel and Le Mans.

20 cds!?!?

The 20 CD Legrand set will now be released by Universal France in November. This is certainly no coincidence as THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND movie will get its premiere also in November.
However, only 9 of those 20 discs will now be devoted to Legrand´s film scores. And among the scores on those 9 CDs just a few will be unreleased ones.
The 20 CD box set will not appaear as part of the "Ecoutez le cinéma" series, but apparently as a separate entity:

"Parallèlement à Ecoutez le cinéma !, Universal Music France publie en novembre un coffret évènement consacré à Michel Legrand, monstre sacré de la musique.
Parmi les 20 CDs du coffret, 9 CDs réunissent ses bandes originales, certaines inédites."

On Amazon France the complete track listing of this 20 CD set which is now called "Les Moulins de Son Coeur" can be found:

https://www.amazon.fr/Moulins-Son-C%C5%93ur-Yves-Montand/dp/B07HPY9GKK/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1539259946&sr=1-2&keywords=michel+legrand&refinements=p_n_date%3A183202031

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND seems to be on CD 19 - but is it only a selection from the complete score with 6 tracks? - and 4 tracks from VIVRE SA VIE ARE on CD 4.
On the other hand, probably quite a lot of tracks are on all these CDs which get now released for the umpteenth time. And the assembly of the tracks is quite strange. It is explained in French.

"Certains CDs fonctionnent sur le couplage de deux vinyles (l'album historique 'Legrand Jazz' avec l'album hommage à Richard Rodgers), d'autres relèvent de l'anthologie, selon des thématiques précises : Nouvelle Vague, interprètes francophones et internationaux, dessins animés, hommages à des comédiens comme Steve McQueen (L'Affaire Thomas Crown) ou Alain Delon (La Piscine), à des cinéastes comme Jean-Paul Rappeneau (Les Mariés de l'an II, Le Sauvage). Le coffret comprend un grand nombre d'inédits dont la musique écrite en 2018 pour le film posthume d'Orson Welles (The Other Side of the Wind), des publicités et indicatifs radio, de nombreux albums rares, jamais réédités en CD (La Dame dans l'auto avec des lunettes et un fusil, Legrand Cinéma.)
Au détour du chemin surgissent des invités prestigieux, tous interprètes du grand Michel : Sarah Vaughan, Stan Getz, Stéphane Grappelli, Louis Armstrong, Yves Montand, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Jessye Norman. Dans le registre du classique, ce sont aussi des ouvrages portés par des solistes comme Natalie Dessay, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Maurice André ou Michel Legrand lui-même, soliste de son propre Concerto pour piano, fraîchement enregistré avec l'Orchestre de Radio-France."
