The biography of Serge Gainsbourg by Martin Pénet , illustrated by pablO and accompanied by 2 compact discs.
Godfather of pop French-style, spiritual father of a generation of musicians who never cease to claim credit for him, Serge Gainsbourg cut his teeth behind the cabaret piano from the 1950s. Admirer of Gershwin And Trenet , supported in its beginnings by Vian , he addresses the jazz with ferocity and demand. His first records outline a character that will soon become essential, between modesty and provocation.
This box set is dedicated to confidential period of Serge Gainsbourg , when he hoped to break into the song with text. The recognition came after passing through the yéyés and the pop music. It was then that we rediscovered the works of his beginnings, perhaps the most authentic.
