Saint-Germain-des-Prés


Notes

From the late '40s to the early '60s, Saint-Germain-des-Prés, on the left bank of the Seine in Paris, was the heart of the intellectual and artistic life in France. The musical landscape: jazzy song and pure "chanson française".

I chose, with care and love, 35 songs among my favourite ones. Several were written/composed by Boris Vian, the soul of Saint-Germain, and Serge Gainsbourg, his worthy heir. The other ones are brilliant too.
