“You Don’t Know What Love Is” from the album “Neo/Nistico”.

“You Don’t Know What Love Is” is a popular song of the Great American Songbook, written by Don Raye (lyrics) and Gene de Paul (music) for the Abbott and Costello picture Keep ‘Em Flying (1941), in which it was sung by Carol Bruce. After Miles Davis recorded an instrumental version of the song in 1954, it became a jazz standard, with Dinah Washington releasing the definitive vocal version a year later. Other noteworthy recordings were made by Billie Holiday and Sonny Rollins.
