Legends of the Fall

All the leaves are green and the skies are blue for David Beckey's Autumn Leaves

Outside the house, suburban Minnesota is quiet except for the rain; cold, too. Suddenly I remember something: The band's name was lifted from the jazz and pop standard by Joseph Kosma, and before the lyrics were rewritten by Johnny Mercer, the title (with lyrics by Jacques Prévert) translated as "The Dead Leaves." Mulching ain't the worst metaphor for an old band yielding new life. At any rate, Beckey has at last gone back to the suburbs.
