Autumn Leaves

Peter is a wonderful teacher, he shows me music from different perspectives and one great examples of different means of interpreting a song is by listening to the following versions of Autumn Leaves.

Wynton Marsalis at its best

Eric Clapton, great voice

Chet Baker's approach

Simple jazzy

Another trio

and the original



Lovely illustration of how the same thing can be interpreted so many different ways.

Hi Claudia. I agree with Karen - it's lovely to hear that beautiful song in so many different ways. I have always loved the original, and I'm a sucker for Eric Clapton too! Hope your weekend is going well my friend.

All are good, but there's just something about Clapton's music and voice. Thanks for the music lesson! Hugs.

I like Eric Clapton and Yves Montand's version the best, but then I'm not big on jazz. I really enjoyed this.

Hi Claudia, I like Eric Clapton's version :) nice

@Kathy - yes, Peter did take time to explain me the different ways of making music!
@Diane - Eric Clapton was my favourite as well.
@Barb - one shown by Peter to me and then I could not wait to share it with you.
@Belle - jazz starts to inspire me!
@Eva - glad you like it!

Claudia I have the Wynton Marsalis version along with one by Andrea Bocelli that is really beautiful... Gorgeous song in any rendition!

@Sush - a good choice as well, thank you! And you are right it is a great song!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
