Summertime:

FT + New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 899 views

Summertime: and – well as per usual the weather is lousy. Nevertheless while you can get it and we are talking about standards – George & Ira Gershwins ‘Summertime’ is easily one of the most covered songs in recording history. And last Thursdays Late Junction played about ten. Part of me would have liked to have heard a show just full of them – the variation can withstand this. A surprisingly fascinating listen, showing the enduring power of a particularly good tune (especially when the version is so deconstructed that the tune doesn’t really exist any more).
