“Body and Soul” is a popular tune written in 1930 by Johnny Green.
This is one of the most commonly played jazz ballads of all time. It was first recorded by Jack Hilton and his Orchestra and later it was used as the theme for the 1947 film “Body and Soul”.

 

Perhaps one of the most popular versions of this tune is Coleman Hawkins’ famous 1939 recording, considered to foreshadow the coming of the bebop style. This tune is most commonly called in the key of Db Major.
