Autumn Leaves

Feuilles MortesIt’s Fall here in Vermont, and KadmusArts is nothing if not attuned to the changing of the seasons. The mountains change hue from green to reds and oranges, and then to sadder and darker shades of brown, and somehow it seems a good time to evoke this in song. So: a small tribute to Joseph Kosma and Jacques Prevert’s Les Feuilles Mortes is in order, both as a jazz instrumental, as well as in its English rendering by Johnny Mercer. And if you don’t feel that any of our selections do the season justice, well — by all means feel free to record your own version:

Yves Montand — Les Feuilles Mortes
Nat King Cole — Autumn Leaves
Cannonball Adderley and Miles Davis — Autumn Leaves
Bill Evans — Autumn Leaves
Juliette Greco — Les Feuilles Mortes
Wynton Marsalis and Sarah Vaughan — Autumn Leaves
Keith Jarrett — Autumn Leaves
Patricia Barber — Autumn Leaves
Iggy Pop — Les Feuilles Mortes
