Sunday Concert: Autumn Leaves

Today is the fall equinox - autumn has begun. The late Eva Cassidy is one of my favorite singers. She managed to take classic songs and make them her own. Who would think someone could sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and have the audience hear it as something fresh and new. Hers is not Judy Garland's. And "Autumn Leaves" - in her mournful, crystal clear voice - is definitely all her own.

What a pity that this beautiful voice was stilled so soon by cancer.
