I should be able to like this every time I listen to it!
My father and his brother were sent over during WWII. His brother had a jazz band and he never made it back alive, but my father did. He used to bury himself in his jazz. I'm certain music had a deep meaning to him, after losing his brother in the war. I was born in the 50s and so it used to be normal to grow up hearing jazz. My generation was into rock, but music is always influenced by the greats.
I've been talking to myself, while listening, to no purpose, in suggesting that no so called popular song is so challenging, pleasant, threatening, beautiful, rewarding to player of listening, as Body and Soul, for its inner intensity, so, ow did Johnny Green do it to give us this sensational art monument of what seems like a popular song?? Here, old heavyweight basher Jimmy Forrest gives it a bedfull of pressure and pleasure and the pain of intense self expression and relief. because this is a great human song…
