2 comentarios:

  1. «Summertime» es una composición de George Gershwin, con letra de DuBose Heyward, Dorothy Heyward e Ira Gershwin como aria para la ópera Porgy y Bess, de 1935. Alcanzó una enorme popularidad desde el estreno de Porgy y Bess, y fue rápidamente adoptada y adaptada como estándar de jazz.
    Red Hot + Rhapsody: The Gershwin Groove is a compilation album produced by Paul Heck of the Red Hot Organization (RHO) to celebrate the birthday of George Gershwin. This compilation is the twelfth entry from the international organization's Red Hot Benefit Series. As with other compilations toward the series, this release serves as a fundraising tool for the RHO's AIDS awareness efforts.
    Notable acts contributing to the album include: Bobby Womack, David Bowie, The Roots, Morcheeba, Duncan Sheik, Natalie Merchant, Jovanotti and a host of others. Sinéad O'Connor, who contributed on Red Hot + Blue (the first album in the benefit series), returned for this album as both a performer and co-producer.

  2. Summertime
    And the livin' is easy
    Fish are jumpin'
    And the cotton is high
    Your daddy's rich
    And your mamma's good lookin'
    So hush little baby
    Don't you cry
    One of these mornings
    You're going to rise up singing
    Then you'll spread your wings
    And you'll take to the sky
    But till that morning
    There's a'nothing can harm you
    With daddy and mamma standing by
