So I learned this song. My bass teacher has said he's played that piece almost a billion times and whenever anyone ever talks about jazz or walking lines, "Autumn Leaves" comes up. I have never heard this song played though with an actual group. All I get on Youtube is Stanley Jordan and that asian kid that taps Super Mario Brothers. Anyone know a link where I can hear Autumn Leaves with an actual electric or upright?

http://youtube.com/watch?v=89B6OmBuG4A is one of the best versions by a piano trio ever imo, also I did an example walking line in notation for it here: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=607576 plus there's my own take of it on my profile. Miles Davis also has a very good version with a samba vamp intro.

I love Miles' version of the song. Stan Getz does a great version as well.

It almost makes me forget how much I despise the tune. Yes--its the standard we all play to death when first learning jazz. Although my first bass teacher had me laughing really hard one lesson when he did a bad narration of a French love tragedy over me playing the head with chords on bass.
