Body and Soul is an album by the jazz tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins, including recordings made between 1939 and 1956. It takes its name from one of Hawkins' most famous performances - a 1939 recording of "Body and Soul"; the album also contains a 1956 recording of the same piece. Because the 1939 recording is held in the highest regard, there have been a number of compilations with the same title, including an earlier CD from RCA, on the Topaz imprint, and a boxed set from Proper.
