Body and Soul is a wonderful jazz standard ballad that has been covered many many times. We’ve shared the Body And Soul Lead Sheet for your convenience.
Body and Soul was originally written by Johnny Green in 1930, in New York City for a very specific singer. To be more precise, it was written for Gertrude Lawrence. She was British and so she would introduce songs written for her to the British audience, gaining more popularity.
If you like this Body And Soul Lead Sheet that we have shared here, it would help us out a ton if you would leave a review and comment describing your experience with the chart and if maybe you’ve performed this song performed.
I think, if more than anything, when musicians and jazz musicians are looking for songs in particular, they are looking for ways to learn how to properly learn specific songs, such as piano voicings, ways to play the melody and scales, arpeggios and patterns to play over those specific chord progressions.
So if anyone has special insight and or videos of the song being explained and performed by let’s say a piano player, all of that information would be extremely helpful and very welcome!
With that being said, here at Minedit, we pride ourselves making public domain documents available for download so that people can continue to educate themselves with knowledge that’s available and open to the public.
