The song "Body and Soul" has been recorded more than 3,000 times. Originally a popular song by Jewish composer Johnny Green, it's now one of the most performed jazz standards. 

Filmmaker Robert Philipson has dug deeper into the song. His documentary "Body and Soul: An American Bridge" examines the complicated relationship between Jewish and African-American culture by way of music.
