The Way You Look Tonight
Thelonious Monk Lyrics

Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you
And the way you look tonight.

Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheeks so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.
With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
It touches my foolish heart.

Lovely, never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it?
Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight.

Mm, mm, mm, mm,
Just the way you look tonight

Still tough to find someone who swings as hard as Sonny Rollins

Richard Manning

one of the greatest tracks of all time!!!


My feeling as well. And the song is also great!

colin stonely

This must be one of the greatest tenor sax solos ever recorded

Kevin Sody Elias

* If you're in the mood for a real swingin' Jazz tune it doesn't get any better than this! These cats were it! 🎶🎶

Phil Pryor

It's great example of life, drive, tone, taste, pure jazz by masters.

Lord of the Mound

The beginning of Sonny’s second solo really takes this into the stratosphere.

JalapenoJr Mapute

Man, this is great. Thanks for putting it up!

Henk Moelker

The best ever !
So happy I heard Rollins live !!


In all of this, don't overlook Thelonious Monk's comping and half-chorus solo. He plays some pure Be-Bop, and not so "Monk-ish", but still Monk!
By the way, Sonny studied with Monk. T.S. Monk has told the story.
