Song Description

From the Opera of 1934 "Porgy and Bess"

Story Behind the Song

I have song this song a cappella since I was 18, so I thought to put it to a recording. I sang this a cappella and my producer Joe gave this version rhythm which I like. I try to make the songs my own as I am not a song writer YET! So I asked Joe to do something untraditional with this version.

Broadjam Member Reviews

This is an interesting take on "Summertime". The vocal presentation is very unique. The singer is very expressive with the character of her lyric delivery and vibrato. The instrumentation for this performance is unique as well. I enjoyed the utilization of the synthesized string ensemble throughout. The singer has a great set of pipes and I hope that I am able to hear more from this artist in the future.

I love the rich quality of your voice. Take on obscure songs, zing them, and make them your own.

Lyrics
Summertime


Summertime and the living is easy
Fish are jumping and the cotton is high
Though your daddy's rich
And your ma she's good lookin'

So hush, little baby, don't you cry

One of these mornins'
your goina' rise up, singing
Then you'll spread your wings
And you'll take the sky

But til that mornin'
there's a nothing can harm you
With mammy and daddy
Standing by

Summer Time
Summer Time

So hush little baby
Don't, don't, don't

You cry ....Summertime, Summertime
