Henry Nemo's 1940 ballad "Don't Take Your Love from Me" has been recorded by saxophone giants John Coltrane (in 1958), Ike Quebec (on his 1962 masterpiece "Blue & Sentimental"), Coleman Hawkins (1958), and Johnny Hodges (also in 1958). It's also been recorded by bandleaders Artie Shaw and Stan Kenton, pianists Errol Garner and Earl Hines, and many other jazz artists.
