Ghostlight Records is proud to release the long-awaited LEGRAND AFFAIR -- an exciting collaboration between vocalist Melissa Errico and multi-Oscar winning film/jazz/pop composer Michel Legrand. Legrand, one of Melissa's musical idols, who conducted, arranged and wrote new material for Melissa with Alan and Marilyn Bergman, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone. It was recorded with a 100-piece pop symphony in Brussels, and a superlative jazz rhythm section of Steve Gadd and David Finck. In the winter and spring of 2005-2006, she has given sneak-peek concerts of this material at The Kennedy Center with The National Symphony (conducted by Marvin Hamlisch), solo several times at Joe's Pub, Dizzy's at Lincoln Center and The Living Room; and on Smooth Jazz cd 101.9 Radio. 

Her previous release was "LULLABIES AND WILDFLOWERS" - a cd about memory and promise.  This lullabies recording appeals to anyone who ever wanted a soft bedtime caress and sweet dreams.  Inspired by classic songs from gentle folk to sophisticated jazz, Melissa also wrote a song called Gentle Child.  She also sings an original song by her brother Mike.  Moved by motherhood and wanting to create a unique musical blend of traditional and unusual lullabies, Melissa made the cd in loving tribute to all new mothers, and in honor of the many she has met in these magical first years with her three young daughters (while founding a downtown mother's support group 'the bowerybabes' in Manhattan now comprised of over a thousand families).  May the cd bring peace, a soothing thought, a chance to reflect, and an offering to anyone who might simply want peaceful and evocative dreams tonight.  Reviews are calling it soothing, serene and sensual- "a reflection on the journey of motherhood- most of the album has a jazzy feel with some pop influences and light tingles of gentle folk music. The songs sway with rhythmic care and genteness like the rise and fall of calm waves." (Jordan Richardson)
