About Autumn in New York

"Autumn in New York" is a jazz standard composed by Vernon Duke in Westport, Connecticut in the summer of 1934. It was written without a commission or for a specific show, but was offered by Duke to producer Murray Anderson for his Broadway musical Thumbs Up! which opened on December 27, 1934 (and closed in May 1935) and was performed by J. Harold Murray. Many versions of the song have been recorded over the years by numerous musicians and singers. The only version to achieve chart success as a single in the USA was that by Frank Sinatra which reached No. 27 in 1949. Jazz versions have been performed by Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Stan Kenton, Sarah Vaughan, Sheila Jordan, Bill Evans, Ahmad Jamal, Salvador Sobral and a duet version by Scottish singers Todd Gordon and Carol Kidd. The song was also recorded by Jo Stafford, and Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald recorded it as a duet. Among the instrumental performances of the tune is a legendary version by guitarist Tal Farlow.

Autumn in new york
Why does it seem so inviting
Autumn in new york
It spells the thrill of first-nighting

Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds
In canyons of steel
Theyre making me feel - Im home

Its autumn in new york
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in new york
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands

Its autumn in new york
Its good to live it again

[louis]
Autumn in new york
The gleaming rooftops at sundown
Oh, autumn in new york
It lifts you up when you run down

Yes, jaded rou‚s and gay divorc‚es
Who lunch at the ritz
Will tell you that its divine

This autumn in new york
Transforms the slums into mayfair
Oh, autumn in new york
Youll need no castles in spain

Yes, lovers that bless the dark
On the benches in central park
Greet autumn in new york
Its good to live it again

[trumpet solo]

[ella]
Autumn in new york
That brings the promise of new love
Autumn in new york
Is often mingled with pain

Dreamers with empty hands
They sigh for exotic lands

Its autumn in new york
Its good to live it again
