"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." These poignant lyrics evoke a bitter-sweet mood of contemplation and introspection. Here is one of the truly outstanding songs of American popular music. Ever since it's first appearance in 1934 as one of the ballads in the Broadway musical "Thumbs Up", Vernon Duke's hauntingly beautiful AUTUMN IN NEW YORK has become a standard classic. It has been arranged and adapted for and performed in almost every conceivable medium....from night-club variety performer to symphony orchestra. It's melody greets one in elevators and aids digestion in restaurants. It has been recorded by our outstanding popular recording artists and performed on television, radio and in films. Yet, unlike many other popular songs with similar exposure, it retains its original fresh melodic appeal, hearing after hearing. Mr. Duke, who also wroth the truly inspired lyric to this song, is also the composer of an equally beautiful tune..."April In Paris".
