Keywords: "Summertime" is an aria composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin.
The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as "without doubt... one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote.... Gershwin's highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of African-Americans in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century." The song is recognized as one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33, 000 covers by groups and solo performers.
This is not just another cover but it is the inspiration of my song.
