The song itself (music only - not the lyrics) was composed by Bobby Green in 1930. As for the particular "arrangement" and pianist - that's anyone's guess !! grin

It reminds me of a simplified version of Art Tatum. I don't have any idea of the player. What a fascinating moving machine. My mover used a motorized piano board , but I think it was homemade. Still took three men to tilt and finish the job.

@carey,

You meant "Johnny" Green, not Bobby?

Wikipedia - Body and Soul

Still looking for anyone that knows as to who wrote the arrangement that is being played, and/or, the pianist.

I now have info that the pianist for the "Body and Soul" performance is Pascal Wintz, from France:
