“Body and Soul”: A blindfold test
Ever since in 1939 Coleman Hawkins did what he did to “Body and Soul”, tenor saxophone players had to show what they can do with this beautiful tune.
I myself always loved the blindfold tests that were (and still are) run by different jazz magazines. So here’s a little blindfold test for my esteemed readership: Which tenor player is playing “Body and Soul” on the tape I found in Otto Flückiger’s archives yesterday?
I am very much looking forward to your educated guesses. I will put up the solution here at the end of june accompanied by a bunch of nice photos – and maybe some more music.
