Valentine's Day Love Jazz Jam!!! [2011/2/14]


BY Alex Wang [ February 13, 2011 at 09:01:48 ]

This Monday is Valentine's Day, a day for friends and lovers, so this week our focus is Jazz tunes that reflect that feeling. There are many Jazz songs that adhere to that theme, "Just Friends", "You Don't Know What Love Is", "I'll Remember April", "My One and Only Love" and of course "My Funny Valentine" just to name a few.

I'm only going to look into a couple of these tunes, "You Know What Love Is", a song that Carol Sanders beautifully performed and recorded as only she could. I did find a version of this song done by the deep, vibrating vocals of Billy Eckstein, which is close to Carol's interpretation with similar endings. (See footage Below)

"You Don't Know What Love Is" is a popular song of the Great American Songbook. The music was written by Gene de Paul, and the lyrics by Don Raye. The song was published in 1941. It was written for the Abbott and Costello film Keep 'Em Flying, which Ella Fitzgerald performed in and featured Carol Bruce as the vocalist. However, the song was dropped from the film prior to release and was never used. Miles Davis and other jazz musicians began recording and playing the song in the 1950s, after which it became a popular jazz standard.

You Don't Know What Love Is

You don't know what love is
Til you’ve learned the meaning of the blues
Until you’ve loved a love you've had to lose
You don't know what love is
You don't know how lips hurt
Until you've kissed and had to pay the cost
Until you've flipped your heart and you have lost
You don't know what love is
Do you know how a lost heart fears
/The thought of reminiscing
And how lips that taste of tears
Lose their taste for kissing
You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is
You don't know how hearts burn
For love that cannot live yet never dies
Until you've faced each dawn with sleepless eyes
You don't know what love is

Then there is one of Valentine's Day favorite Jazz song "My Funny Valentine" which I think most vocalist, professional and non-professional have tried their hand at.

"My Funny Valentine" is a show tune from the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical Babes in Arms. After being recorded by Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra and Miles Davis, the song became a popular jazz standard, appearing on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists.

My Funny Valentine
~ By Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart ~

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable, unphotographable
Yet you're my favorite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay
Each day is Valentine's Day

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak, are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine, stay
Each day is Valentine's Day

You Don't Know What Love Is - Billy Eckstine

After listening to many versions of this song, I think that Melinda Doolittle does one of the best versions that I heard, at least she won't put you to sleep!!!
