Winter in Paris and Autumn Leaves

As the last leaves have fallen to the ground in Paris, a little selection of nice covers (among many others) of the standard Autumn Leaves, by Yves Montand, Edith Piaf, Miles Davis, Nate King Cole and Roger Williams. The song was written in 1945 with music by Joseph Kosma and lyrics by the poet Jacques Prévert.

Thank you for this post! This is one of my favourite French songs, I think Yves Montand's version is the most beautiful... I love Gainsbourg hommage in "La chanson de Prevert" too ;-)

My compliments to your blog!
