Serge Reggiani sings Boris Vian (CD)

15.00

Published in 1965, this first album marks a decisive turn in Serge Reggiani’s career. Jacques Canetti was the one who introduced the actor to music by offering him these 12 Boris Vian songs during an impromptu encounter at Simone Signoret and Yves Montand’s home.

Accompanied by the music of Louis Bessières, Michel Auzépy, Alain Goraguer, M. Philippe-Gérard and Jimmy Walter (Boris Vian’s pianist), Serge Reggiani revealed his voice with its unique tone and put his talent for acting to use with these great lyrics.

The album received the Grand Prix from the Charles Cros academy.

It includes: Arthur où t’as mis le corps, Le déserteur, Que tu es impatiente la mort, Je bois …
