Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Le Splendid is the name of a Paris café-théâtre founded in the 1970s by a collective of writers and actors. The members of the company went on to become some of the most significant names in French cinema. Forty years after their début, Le Grand Orchestre du Splendid, the theatre's house orchestra, is still performing, with its signature mix of good natured fun and irresistible swing.
