song: Black Is the Color (of My True Love's Hair)
artist: Johnny Smith
album: The New Johnny Smith Quartet (1956)
origin: Traditional Appalachian / Scottish folk song

electric jazz guitar: Johnny Smith

This solo guitar piece is a jazzy interpretation of the traditional folk song, "Black Is the Color (of My True Love's Hair)". The 'real' origin of the song has been debated by musicologists, since, on the one hand, it took its current form in Appalachian folk music, yet, on the other hand, it has a lyrics traceable further back to Scottish folk music. Regardless of its origins, Johnny Smith takes it deep into new jazz territory, in his very free interpretation, which highlights the rich jazz voicings and the polyphonic arrangement. Enjoy!
