When an Early Autumn Walk the Land........

Posted on September 14, 2011

As many of you know, autumn is my favorite season.  Not just because my birthday is in a few days (actually the first day of fall!) but because I love the crispness in the air, the sense of anticipation and excitement of the coming months and the beautiful blue sky and changing leaves.  Springtime for me is gorgeous as well, but nothing compares to fall.


Here in Virginia we are blessed to experience all four seasons and when one starts to get tiresome, another is on the way.  Our springs and falls are ones to remember.  That's why these two seasons inspired so many wonderful jazz standards along the way.  "Early Autumn", "September Song", "Autumn Leaves", "Autumn in New York" to name a few.  I hope this fall brings you a renewed spirit to get outside and enjoy nature's bounty and listen to the autumnal songs that remind us why this is such a special time of year.
