Body and Soul

★ Grade - Medium

❖ Genre - Jazz/Ballad

✦ Key Db

► Duration 3.30 minutes


Composer: Johnny Green


The main part of the tune consists of a repeated eight-bar melody, followed by an eight-bar bridge and a final eight-bar return to the melody. The "A" section uses conventional chord progressions including II-V-I turnarounds in the home key of Db, however the bridge is highly unusual in its tonal center shifts. "Body and Soul" is considered a challenging piece to solo over; however, the unusual nature of the chords provides a "large degree of improvisational freedom".
