Legendary Film Composer Michel Legrand

He's got three Oscars and five Grammys... but you could say he's just a Parisian who likes to play the piano. Legendary music composer Michel Legrand joins us for a look back on his career of over 200 film and TV scores. He's written music for directors like Jean-Luc Godard, Orson Welles and Clint Eastwood. He'll be performing at the MGM Grand on March 27, along with friends like Dionne Warwick, Roberta Flack and Jerry Lewis. Join us for a stroll through musical history.
