There's always something sleazy and low about Serge Gainsbourg's work and in no way do I mean that as an insult. At times we all need the darkest parts of the night and Serge brought them through in many different guises throughout his long career.

'Black Trombone' is a great example of his early solo work and sees his deep vocal move along with instrumentation that goes from a muffled and lo-fi brass line up toward a big band crescendo with class and patience.
