Richard Galliano, Paolo Fresu and Jan Lundgren: The Windmills of Your Mind


Sign in to view read count
After reading the 200 Jazz Compositions Inspired By Don Quixote announcement and listening to the companion playlist I discovered the many jazz covers of Michel Legrand's "Windmills of Your Mind"—which won an Oscar for best song (The Thomas Crown Affair, 1968). A haunting beauty, this version by Richard Galliano, Paolo Fresu and Jan Lundgren's appears on Mare Nostrum III (ACT Music, 2019).
