Tuesday Tunes – “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess

Now that it’s summer, what better song to share than the haunting “Summertime” from George Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess“?

Here is Harolyn Blackwell’s ethereal performance (Paula Ingram plays the role of “Clara” in this 1993 “American Playhouse” staging; her voice is dubbed by Blackwell) – my all-time favorite version of this American classic:

If you are interested, the “American Playhouse” video is available on Amazon.  You can also get either this song or the entire soundtrack (in CD or MP3 formats) – a truly amazing performance!
