The fall is my favorite season – by a long margin. There’s nothing like fall in New England. I can take or leave the spring here, and I can do without winter, but fall is the shiznit.
In honor of the lovely fall that’s underway, I’ve got my music server churning out the jazz standard Autumn Leaves. I apparently own 11 versions of the song in total, covering two hours altogether. The recordings span half a century, from 1950 (Dizzy) through 2000 (Barber) and range from 3 minutes long (Dizzy) to a marathon 27 minutes (Jarrett)!
