Dedicated to You
John Coltrane Lyrics


If I should write a book for you
That brought me fame and fortune too,
That book would be,
Like my heart and me,
Dedicated to you.

And if I should paint a picture too
That showed the loveliness of you,
My art would be,
Like my heart and me,
Dedicated to you.

To you,
Because your love is the beacon that lights up my way.
To you,
Because with you I know a lifetime could be just one heavenly day.

If I should find a twinkling star,
One half as wondrous as you are,
That star would be
Like my heart and me,
Dedicated to you.

To you,
Because your love is the beacon that lights up my way.
To you,
Because with you I know a lifetime could be just one heavenly day.

If I should find a twinkling star,
One half as wondrous as you are,
That star would be
Like my heart and me,
Dedicated to you.

Thought I had recommend this
one to you, but
just now checked to see if you got
to this one yet. Simply put: IT DOESN'T GET ANY
BETTER THAN THIS! Unbelievable that he never achieved superstardom!
They don't refer to
him as a "singer's singer for nothing.
The guy's voice is
STAGGERING!



Milton Moore

My favorite recording by the
inimitable Johnny
Hartman, whose
life was sadly cut
short by "the noxious weed," cigarettes! 😭 Age
57.😣😭😣😭😣.
I discovered this singer around 30
years ago while
visiting a business
associate in Plainfield, New Jersey, when a recording of his came on the radio.
I knew I was listening to one of
the greatest voices God ever created, and enthusiastically inquired who he was. The rest is
history. I always
recommend this
song!👍👏☝😃

Whenever I play this album for friends I love the reactions it gets, from astonishment to slack jawed wonder - without question a sonic masterpiece, anyone who loves music needs to listen to this incredible album from beginning to end - it will change how you feel about jazz forever, simply stunning - in my opinion Johnny Hartman is the most under appreciated American vocalist of the 20th century.. Coltrane, well, he's Coltrane.

@TheEternalNow of course you're correct, the lineup of talent is stunning:
Mccoy Turner (groundbreaking artist), Jimmy Garrison(featured on innumerable jazz classics) and Elvin Jones (!) :O OMG..immortals all..no wonder it's a masterpiece....

I listened and was taken on a trip into romantic slumber. The music, the voice and the timing was in sync with my heart. Two men with a wealth of tremendous talent..
