Autumn Leaves, or: Rite of Youth

The title of this post is my favorite Miles Davis song (and what I would play for anyone who wants an intro to jazz. It has the classic elements: skill, passion, theme, abandonment of theme (or so it seems), theme expressed through different instruments, collaboration, improvisation, and return to theme, but it also is a very emotional piece.

Ignore the date stamp - I finally entered the right date and then turned it off.

Anyway, here's TinyE enjoying a rite of youth.
