After enjoying hearing the voice of Serge Gainsbourg on Julien Daïan's 'Trop c'est Trop' the other day, (see more) now this gentle and well-delivered instrumental-only treatment of 'Je suis venu te dire que je m'en vais' appeals. A stillness hangs in the air. From pianist André Manoukian with double bassist Gilles Coquard, drummer Pierre-Alain Tocanier, percussionist Inor Sotolongo and cellist Guillaume Latil, the interpretation, which includes a brief hint of an improvisation, is drawn from Les pianos de Gainsbourg, which is an album themed around Gainsbourg's piano bar days. Among the other tracks Melody Gardot appears highly effectively on 'La javanaise.'

'Je suis venu te dire que je m'en vais' ('I came to tell you that I am leaving') appeared on Gainsbourg 1973 album Vu de l'extérieur (Seen From the Outside). André Manoukian, top. Photo: Enzo Productions. Les Pianos De Gainsbourg is on Decca France.
