Autumn Leaves Solo Electric Piano Cover

I did a cover of the jazz song Autumn Leaves originally written by Joseph Kosma and lyricists Johnny Mercer and Jacques Prevert in 1945 and released in 1946.

Cover:

Again not sure that I could really find the original but here's some renditions by Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, and another by Nat King Cole

I like your solo. Nice and slow. That Chet Baker version is really the best. With the incomparable Paul Desmond and Steve Gadd. Legends!

You can tell when I messed up because I sustained absolutely horridly, "Just gonna solo up a bi- WOOPS" *cue piercing sweep of keys*

 

Playing slow is hard. My first teacher always told me "if you can't play it slow, you can't play it fast". I think there are exceptions but this is usually the case. When I was in college we got to see professional musicians from all over. Lemme tell ya they ALL make mistakes. But If you can improv your way out with a sweep and keep rhythm you're doing okay.
