Creio que o pianista que acompanhou Billie Holiday nesta magnífica interpretação foi Oscar Peterson. Se alguém puder confirmar ou desmentir, agradeço que diga nos comentários. João Machado

Obrigado a Yetunde F:

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;

they’re making me feel: I’m home.


It’s autumn in New York that brings the promise of new love.

Autumn in New York is often mingled with pain.

Dreamers with empty hands may sigh for exotic lands;

It’s autumn in New York;

It’s good to live it again.


Autumn in New York, the gleaming rooftops at sundown

Autumn in New York, it lifts you up when you’re let down

jaded roués and gay divorces who lunch at the Ritz

will tell you that it’s devine


It’s autumn in New York transforms the slums into Mayfair

Autumn in New York, you’ll need no castle in Spain

Lovers that bless the dark

On benches in Central Park

Greet autumn in New York,

It’s good to live it again
