In 1964 and 1966, when Serge Gainsbourg took part in two public radio recordings, he was undoubtedly the star of the evening. In his own words, this marked the end of his "blue period", a mix of left-bank chanson, jazz influences and exotic rhythms. Alone at the piano or accompanied by guitar and double bass, Gainsbourg masterfully takes on the roles of disappointed lover and disillusioned cynic alike.When Serge Gainsbourg timidly replied to Juliette Gréco in 1959, he had just been spotted. Invited to appear on the famous "Club d'Essai" in 1958 and on the "Discoparade" show in 1961 and 1962, Gainsbourg sang his first, already deliciously naughty songs, accompanying himself on the piano.
