    Notes

    Autumn Leaves is a jazz standard composed by Joseph Kosma, with French lyrics by Jacques Prévert and English lyrics by Johnny Mercer. Kosma and Prévert collaborated on the song Les Feuilles mortes ("The Dead Leaves") for the 1946 film Les Portes de la nuit (Gates of the Night) where it was sung by Irène Joachim. Kosma was influenced by a piece of ballet music, "Rendez-vous" written for Roland Petit, which was itself borrowed partially from "Poème d'octobre" by Jules Massenet. Johnny Mercer wrote the English lyric and gave it the title "Autumn Leaves". It has been recorded about 1400 times by mainstream and modern jazz musicians alone and is the eighth most-recorded tune in jazz.

     

    Autumn Leaves offers a popular way for beginning jazz musicians to become acquainted with jazz harmony as the chord progression consists almost solely of ii–V–I and ii–V sequences which are typical of jazz.

     

    This arrangement features the trombone of the brass quintet, and will be an epic opening or closing piece to your concert.
