Les feuilles mortes, known internationally mostly as Autumn Leaves, was written in 1945 by Joseph Kosma based on a poem by Jacques Prévert. It was introduced by Yves Monstand in the Marcel Carnés film Gates of Night (Les Portes de la nuit, 1946). However, it developed a life of its own as a ‘chanson’ and became in its English version a Nr.1 Hit and a jazz standard.
In 1994, Michel Petrucciani interpreted Autumn Leaves in the Paris Théâtre Des Champs-Elysées amongst his Medley of my Favorite Songs with numerous other jazz goodies.
