Uploaded on Nov 7, 2018
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.
Singers who have recorded this ballad include Jimmy Scott, Etta James, Frank Sinatra, and Mildred Bailey, who introduced the song to the world.
Essential versions are those by Hodges, Quebec, James, and Scott, who all wring all the emotion out of this somewhat simple song.
