Body and Soul
by Coleman Hawkins

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven't you seen it
I'm all for you body and soul

I spend my days in longing
And wondering why it's me you're wronging
I tell you I mean it
I'm all for you body and soul

I can't believe it
It's hard to conceive it
That you'd turn away romance
Are you pretending
It looks like the ending
Unless I could have just one more chance to prove, dear

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for just the taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

My life a wreck you're making
You know I'm yours for the very taking
I'd gladly surrender myself to you body and soul

There have been hundreds of versions of Body and Soul. Coleman Hawkins' version is perfection.

yes!

With no rehearsal and just one take, Hawkins captured musical lightning. “His eyes were closed,” his pianist Gene Rodgers recalled, “and he just played as if he was in heaven.”

God said to Coleman "Trust Me" and Coleman said, "I hear you Lord"

Per Theander

Lots of jazzy people think this is one of the greatest moments of recorded Music. They are right...

Jim Hall thought so!

Horacio Lucero
