En 1964, Serge Gainsbourg fréquente encore les cabarets de la rive gauche, où il enchante un public restreint de ses refrains classieux. Mais, après un album presque Confidentiel, enregistré avec contrebasse et guitare, il décide de battre son jazz tant qu'il est chaud et de le marier à des rythmes plus exotiques. Il s'offre donc 5 percussionnistes et 12 choristes, et délaisse la compagnie de "La Javanaise" pour fréquenter la belle "Joanna" ou la "Pauvre Lola". Fini les complaintes existentielles, Gainsbourg célèbre l'amour sans philosopher ("Couleur café"), admire la hauteur des building de "New York-U.S.A" et batifole avec "Les Sambassadeurs", de proches cousins de la "Girl From Ipanema". Quand parfois sa mélancolie résiste aux airs brésiliens, aux pulsations africaines et au saxophone magique de Michel Portal, il retrouve son costume étriqué de dandy décadent et ses pulsions suicidaires ("Quand mon 6.35 me fait les yeux doux"). Mais même si "Mieux vaut pleurer de rien que de rire de tout" ("Ces petits riens"), les douze titres de Percussions se révèlent aussi enjoués que le "Tatoué Jérémie". --Sabrina Silamo
