Maybe someone can help me find this recording... I heard a big band alto saxophone feature recording of How Do We Keep The Music Playing by Michel Legrand. I called the radio station and they said it was The BBC Big Band, featuring Barry Robinson on alto sax.

How can best I listen to this? 

If it is indeed the BBC Big Band, can you point me to how I can buy a copy?  

Thank you very much.

Marsh DeMott

I just tried several different searches and nothing came up, we probably need the name of the album, if it exists.

I have to say the playing and arrangement are tops.

You may want to ask the DJ where the song comes from, because I can not find it on any albums.

Here is a list of all the versions of that song, or at least most of them:

This would have have a BBC radio session, and not a commercial recording. It would therefore not be available for purchase.

Hi there, The track you are asking about is my recording of that song with the BBC Big Band. I was the Lead Alto Sax with the BBC Big Band/Radio Orchestra from 1969-2000. I will check to see if I can find it in my collection of my recordings and let you know.  Thanks for your inquiry.
