Ella Fitzgerald: Gershwin’s Summertime

By request, here is Summertime.

There are hundreds of great professional and amateur performances of this song online – it really is a folk song, even if we do know who wrote it. Here’s Ella Fitzgerald performing the song in Berlin in 1968.

Another in the summer songs series, for which your suggestions are welcome.
