Watching Ted play this tune, I'm realizing "Autumn Leaves" has a chord progression that moves an awful lot like Bach's progressions. Here you've got jazz and Bach, together with French pop (which is where the song originated), all at the same time, and all played on a Telecaster.

It's interesting to compare this version with Barney Kessel's trio version, over here on the city slicker cousin of this blog.
