about

It was a great honour for me to record this with the late, great Teddy Charles.

Teddy, of course, played vibraphone on this recording; which alas proved to be his last release before he passed away.

Teddy is a legend and played with all the greats from the golden era from Billie Holiday through Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and many, many more.

We recorded this as a Quintet - a cut down version of The Danny Flam Big Band with the beautiful arrangement of this Billie Holiday track by Grammy award winning Danny Flam.

lyrics

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
UNTIL YOU’VE LEARNED THE MEANING OF THE BLUES
UNTIL YOU’VE LOVED A LOVE YOU'VE HAD TO LOSE
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW LIPS HURT
UNTIL YOU'VE KISSED AND HAD TO PAY THE COST

UNTIL YOU'VE FLIPPED YOUR HEART AND YOU HAVE LOST

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS

DO YOU KNOW HOW A LOST HEART FEARS

THE THOUGHT OF REMINISCING

AND HOW LIPS THAT TASTE OF TEARS

LOSE THEIR TASTE FOR KISSING

YOU DON'T KNOW
WHAT LOVE IS…

DO YOU KNOW HOW A LOST HEART FEARS

THE THOUGHT OF REMINISCING

AND HOW LIPS THAT TASTE OF TEARS

LOSE THEIR TASTE FOR KISSING

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HEARTS BURN

FOR LOVE THAT CANNOT LIVE YET NEVER DIES

UNTIL YOU'VE FACED EACH DAWN WITH SLEEPLESS EYES

YOU DON'T KNOW
YOU DON’T KNOW
YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS…
