Song of the Week: Autumn in Washington Square

The morning air is crisp now, and soon leaves will crunch under your feet as you take your morning walk. They burst into vibrant colors; making the trees aflame with their bright reds, yellows, and oranges. It's as if nature is showing us how beautiful it is in order to stave off the bleak, barren months of winter. It is fall.

This week's song is "Autumn in Washington Square" from Dave Brubeck's Jazz Impressions of New York. I think it captures both the beauty and melancholy of the season quite well. There are passages where I can almost see a handful of dry, orange leaves blown across a paved walkway by the cool October breeze.
