The Sounds of Autumn

I absolutely love Autumn.

And I thought you might like a list of seasonally

appropriate music.

The first being a beautiful flute piece titled

Soir D'Autumne

by the French composer Phillipe Gaubert.

My friend, the brilliant singer Norma Winstone, turned me on to

A String Around Autumn

by Toru Takemitsu.

Here we have Norwegian guitar great Terje Rypdal and a tune titled

Autumn Breeze.

On the Azimuth recording Depart

Norma and friends perform a tune simply titled


The Bill Evans Trio


When Autumn Comes.

And from this very special recording by

Danilo Perez with Claus Ogerman and Orchestra we find

Another Autumn.

Bird chimes in with

Autumn In New York.

I just discovered this Vasant Rai & Oregon recording yesterday.

It's great! The title,

Autumn Song.

Jazz legends John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman perform

Autumn Serenade.

And who could forget the very beautiful song


by Edgar Winters?


  1. Thank you for this selection David! I'm not familiar with any of these and would love to listen to some...
    Have a great monday!

  2. I enjoyed browsing through your autumnal choices, David. The look wonderful! This is my favorite time of year, as well.

  3. Thanks for dropping by Willow. Glad you liked the music and this beautiful season.
