Les feuilles mortes

As much as I love Autumn leaves (one of the true smooth jazz classics), I still prefer the original French version. It is not a straightforward translated version either - the English version is more simple musically whilst the original chanson has more depth. There are plenty of great versions of Les feuilles mortes, I opted for a live version by the charming Juliettte Greco, recorded in Berlin in 1967.
