Herbie Nichols: All The Way


To keep the momentum of the previous article on Herbie Nichols, just listen to the attached video with his version of All The Way. Nichols was a pianist and composer  who recorded ion the 1950-ties for the Blue Note Label. However his work was somewhat experimental for those days and did not deliver what Alfred Lion had expected. However in the 1980-ties a real Herbie Nichols revival came up and today his work is still acknowledged for his originality and creativity.

the joker is wild

Because he was a composer of his own he rarely recorded jazz standards. All The Way was written and composed by the famous duo Jimmy van Heusen and Sammy Cahn and introduced in the 1957 film The Joker Is Wild. Frank Sinatra recorded it also in 1957 and it became one of hist best selling recordings. All The Way received an Oscar in 1957 for Best Original Song.

Just take the time to listen to the Herbie Nichols’version of this great song and how his interpretation leads to a very creative and inspiring  rendition.
