The Standard


This clip of alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges playing the jazz standard "All Of Me" with the Duke Ellington Orchestra was filmed at a live concert in Amsterdam on November 2, 1958.

Gerald Marks and Seymor Simmons wrote this one and it was a #1 chart topping hit for both Louis Armstrong and the Paul Whiteman Orchestra in 1932.

Among the hundreds of renditions of the tune over the year, two, one by Benny Carter and one by Billie Holiday, stand out.

Lyrics

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you

Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you

You took the part
That once was my heart
So why not take all of me

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can't you see
I'm no good without you

Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my arms
I'll never use them

Your goodbye
Left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you

You took the best
So why not take the rest
Baby, take all of me
