Sunday Jazz – Summertime

 

ella

Summer arrived this weekend and as such there could only be one choice for Sunday Jazz…… “Summertime”

“Summertime” – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush little baby, Don’t you cry

One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing
And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky
But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by

One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing
And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky
But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by

As a bonus here is an instrumental version by Chet Baker

“Summertime” – Chet Baker
