(2-LP set) Autumn Leaves, the follow up album to the incredibly successful Jacintha debut album Here’s To Ben, was an immense success in its own right. Recorded by Michael Ross in flawless direct to 2-track 1/4inch 30 ips, the sound on this session may be even better than on GRV1001. Its includes an awesome version of the Shirley Horn hit Here’s To Life which was recorded by writer-producer Artie Butler for use as the music track for the opening credits sequence to the Antonio Banderas-Woody Harrelson movie Play It To The Bone.
The album features the same band as Here’s To Ben (Kei Akagi on piano, Darek Oles on bass, Lawrence Marable on drums and Teddy Edwards on tenor sax). This is a superb collection of Johnny Mercer favourites and includes fantastic versions of Moonriver, Autumn Leaves, Travellin’ Light. In a new deluxe One Step Gatefold jacket.
