I just read that there's over 30,000 (yep thirty thousand known versions of this song) so post a version.

The only rule is it must be a version no one else has posted -that means by a different artist!

--------


The original recording by Abbie Mitchell - Summertime [Original][1935]

I love Fantasia's performance. That was her winning song on Idol that year.:cheer:

Fantasia :worship: that was a legendary moment in TV history. But you posted the wrong version of it, the first time she did it was the best:

FDNybo2lysk

Simon trying to recapture the moment with Leona was a horrible tragedy, however.

The great musician Miles Davis (even though he was an asshole as a human being) in the wonderful arrangement by Gil Evans.

Personally, I thought it was perfect the way George Gershwin wrote it and that is my preferred way to listen to it.
If you can't make the high Bflat at the end come scritto, I don't want to hear it.

Let the sound of Leontyne Price's lush soprano transport you...
