Autumn Leaves

You are all no doubt familiar with the old standard "Autumn Leaves". I did not realize that, though often attributed to Johnny Mercer, it is his English translation of the original Les Feuilles Mortes, with lyrics by Jacques Prevert and music by Joseph Kosma.

In any case, until you've heard Eva Cassidy do this song, you haven't really heard it at all. Do yourself a favor and pick up her Songbird disk.
