Tribute to Alain Goraguer


Alain Goraguer working with Serge Gainsbourg

Alain Goraguer is one of the great French jazz/arrangers/electronic artists that somehow slipped through the cracks with respect to America's attention. But alas, TamTam Books wants to do a little tribute to this music giant.


Goraguer's soundtrack theme to the film based on Boris Vian's "I Spit on Your Graves." Side B.

Alain Goraguer's "Une voiture dans le ciel"


Ignore the first 30 seconds, but then it kicks into France Gall's "Nefertiti." Written by Gainsbourg and arranged by Goraguer.


Again ignore the first 20 seconds. France Gall singing and music by Goraguer.


Ignore the first 10 seconds till the song kicks in! But France Gall singing. Song by Gainsbourg and arrangements by Goraguer.
