In this musical documentary, the fascinating evolution of the jazz standard “Body and Soul” becomes a symbol of the complicated relationship between African Americans and American Jews. Written by a Jewish composer in 1929 and famously interpreted by Louis Armstrong and the Benny Goodman Trio, the song played a major role in smashing the color barrier in popular music.
