Michel Legrand, Alan Bergman, and Patti Austin perform at Feinstein's at the Regency.
Michel Legrand has received three Academy Awards and five Grammy Awards. He has composed many memorable film scores including The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Ice Station Zebra, The Three Musketeers, Summer of '42, The Thomas Crown Affair, Lady Sings the Blues and Yentl. His songs include "I Will Wait for You," "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life?," "The Windmills of Your Mind," "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?" and "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" (many written with Alan & Marilyn Bergman). He has made over 100 albums and collaborated with such artists as Miles Davis, Lena Horne, Quincy Jones, Kiri Te Kanawa and Barbra Streisand. His songs have been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Nina Simone and Jessye Norman, among others.
Alan Bergman teamed with wife Marilyn to forge one of the premier lyric writing teams in contemporary film music. The Bergmans' best-known effort is the title theme to the 1973 film The Way We Were, written with Marvin Hamlisch. A #1 hit for the movie's star, Barbra Streisand, the song also earned an Academy Award. The couple teamed with composer Michel Legrand for many distinguished compositions. They collaborated with Hamlisch on Emmy winning TV projects Queen of the Stardust Ballroom and Sybil. The couple also penned the Tootsie theme "It Might Be You," a Top Ten hit for Stephen Bishop in 1982.
Patti Austin is an international singing star whose career's high notes include the evergreen duets with James Ingram, their #1 record "Baby Come To Me," the R&B hit "The Heat of Heat" and her collaboration with Quincy Jones on works like Juke Joint and The Dude. At age 10, Patti performed with greats Sammy Davis Jr., her godfather Quincy Jones and her godmother Dinah Washington. She toured with Harry Belafonte at 17 and sang backup for James Brown (on the classic "It's A Man's World"), Cat Stevens and Paul Simon. Her performance of "The Girl Who Used To Be Me," from the film Shirley Valentine, won Patti nominations for a Golden Globe, a Grammy and an Oscar.
