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.
From the Opera of 1934 "Porgy and Bess"
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
So hush little baby
Don't, don't, don't
You cry ....Summertime, Summertime
Here's a captivating cover of an old folk favorite. Nice arrangement! The vocal is warm and engaging and beautiful to listen to.
Very beautifully done!!! The vocals have a real deep feeling to them. Nice song Keep em coming!!!
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.
Nice orchestral arrangement!
Really cool version...the hesitation and the percussion add to the tension wonderfully. The vocal is soooo soulful!! You have quite nice added your own touch to this classic..another HIT!
The song is a great classic standard. This is an unusual interpretation of it.
I like this old blues standard. I don't think this one fits in the Folk category. It's more a show tune or, as I mentioned, a blues standard. Vocals were good. The arrangement was very good. The instrumentation was excellent. All that lacks from this being a smash hit is originality. And, given the right promotion, even that can be overcome. Good luck with this!
