Favourite Friday Track!!

This track immediately sprung (or is that 'sprang'? - is that even a word?) to mind when I opened the curtains the other morning to yet another dark, damp and dreary mid-summertime day!

One of the most evocative and well known tracks of all time has got to be 'Summertime' - composed by the legendary George Gershwin.

'The song is recognised as one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers.'

This version combines the talents of jazz legends  Ella Fitzgerald - the First Lady of Song and Louis Armstrong - one of the most influential artists in jazz history.

'Summertime ... and the livin' is easy ...' 

Is it just me that gets that old 'spine-tingle type thing' when this song is played? Gets me every time!
