Serene Sunday – Summertime

It’s still the dead of winter, so it seems like a good time for this song.  Summertime was composed for the 1935 opera, Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin.  The author of the book upon which it was based, DuBose Heyward penned the lyrics.  Here is a rendition with the great Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.

Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – Summertime. The best version, I guess.

  1. This is my favorite version of one of my favorite songs.  I love that lyric…”one of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing.”  *Sigh*  Thanks, judiang!

  2. Ella and Louis. What a beautiful way to wake up. Joanna, it is still too dark here, to see if there is still more snow out there. But tthe voice of Ella – so fresh and so full of the promise of Spring> Thank you, judiang.
