sunday’s records: all the things you are

today we are greeted by another charming post from jamie:

charlie parker once said that this old jazz standard’s lyrics were his favorite. here in a smoky parlor, serge gainsbourg’s fingers croon “you are the breathless hush of evening that trembles on the brink of a lovely song”.

and hopefully coming soon to a theater near you is gainsbourg, je t’aime … moi non plus, very loosely based on director joann sfar’s graphic novel. it takes a dreamlike approach to gainsbourg’s life, told through immersive performances, animation, and yes, puppets.
