The biography of Serge Gainsbourg by Martin Pénet , illustrated by pablO and accompanied by 1 compact disc.

Godfather of French pop , spiritual father of a generation of musicians who never cease to call upon him, Serge Gainsbourg cut his teeth behind the piano in the cabarets of the 1950s. Admirer of Gershwin and Trenet , supported beginning with Vian , he approached jazz with ferocity and demand. His first records outline a character that will soon become essential, between modesty and provocation.

This album is dedicated to Serge Gainsbourg 's confidential period , when he hoped to break into lyrical singing. Recognition came after passing through yéyés and pop music. It was then that we rediscovered the works of his beginnings, perhaps the most authentic.
