Of all tracks that regularly enter my mind without a particular reason, Black Trombone (1962) is probably the most frequent. I love the power and melancholy of the trombone, the simplicity and honesty of the lyrics and the overall Euro-jazz feel. Question: who plays trombone on this track?

This track first appeared on the 10 inch N°4 in 1962. It was written by Gainsbourg and arranged and orchestrated by Alain Goraguer.
It is available on this CD, released by French Mercury records in 1996:
The title is French for Jazz in the Ravine. All the tracks have a jazz, loungy feel and date from the late 1950s, early 1960s period. Serge released his debut single Ça n’vaut pas la peine d’en parler in 1954.
