Summertime

From the musical

Porgy and Bess



Music by George Gershwin, Lyrics by Ira Gershwin

"Summertime" is an aria composed in 1934 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 by ASCAP.[

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 blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century". Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim has characterized Heyward's lyrics for "Summertime" and "My Man's Gone Now" as "the best lyrics in the musical theater" The song is recognized as among the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers

Summertime

Unlike the original ballad heard in the opera Porgy and Bess and sung by a high soprano, here is an easy swing rendition and placed in a key that is comfortable for developing voices. The section with a written out scat solo can be easily repeated for those choirs learning to improvise.

All the pieces are expertly arranged to suit the needs of amateur SATB groups looking for lighter popular repertoire -- school choirs, youth schoirs, or chamber choirs of any description. There's a mixture of accompanied and unaccompanied numbers, and a variety of styles: smoky blues, up-tempo sat, sentimental swing, exuberant Dixieland, sophisticated close-harmony, plu an opulent show-stopper or two like 'Somewhere over the rainbow'.

Songlist: Ain't Misbehavin', Autumn Leaves, Begin the Beguine, Blue Moon, The Continental, Deep Purple, I Got Rhythm, Laura, Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love), Over the Rainbow, She Was Beautiful , Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, Summertime, 'S Wonderful, Tea For Two, Night and Day, In the Mood

Various Arrangers : Women's Jazz 3

Sung either soli or solo, the front section of 'Give Me the Simple Life' really sets up this chart for success. A written-out bass solo leads into an a cappella SSAA quartet feature that is 'a real gas!' Back to the bridge, on through a key change to the classic Basie "Splanky" ending. Suitable for contest or concert. Freytag's latin version of 'Summertime' will be fun for the singers and the audience. 'Playrooms' is an a cappella jazz waltz, that will set a gentle tone in your program. The text, written by Jackie Farrell, describes the beauty of young children and of the simple joys often forgotten by adults. 'Queen of Hearts' is a playful, easy to sing yet very full sounding version of this repeated pop and country top ten hit. The lead moves from part to part, giving the upper three parts each a chance to sing the melody. The alto 2 "bass line" features plenty of lyrics and countermelodies as well. 'I Remember Clifford,' a classic Benny Golson tune, is set here for female voices and a torch-style soloist. The tribute to jazz great and trumpet player, Clifford Brown, has remained a jazz standard since first introduced. The lush harmonies provide a beautiful setting for Golson's tribute. The soloist has freedom to sing the line as written or develop her own solo line.

Songlist: Give Me the Simple Life, Summertime, Playrooms, Queen of Hearts, I Remember Clifford

Alti & Bassi : Il Mito Americano : 00  1 CD

Alti & Bassi : Il Mito Americano

Unfortunately our understanding of Italian is limited to restaurant menus, but a scan of the track list indicates that the spiritual and jazz standard are this CD's focus. These five European chaps obviously have a fondness for these particularly American forms; "Climbing Up The Mountain," "Summertime," "Satin Doll," and "Sophisticated Lady" are the mediums for Alti & Bassi's swinging big band style. Vocal orchestrations and scat are vital ingredients, and the group has a great deal of skill and versatility. Their gospel turn on "I'm Rolling Through This Unfriendly World" is warm and convincing. Occasional piano accompaniment.

Songlist: Tu vo fa' f'americano, Climbing up the Mountain, Down by the Riverside, Fugue with Satin Doll, Quando canta Rabagliati, Jusus Gave Me Water, Satin Doll, Summertime, I'm Rolling Thorough This Unfriendly World, When the Saints Go Marchin' In , Jazz, Sphisticated Lady, Dueling Voices

Blue Jupiter : Twisted Broadway

2017 release. Blue Jupiter, a New York City-based contemporary a cappella group, announces the release of Twisted Broadway Volume 1 (An A Cappella Album). Twisted Broadway delivers classic Broadway show tunes, but each has been twisted, boldly re-imagined in Blue Jupiter's high energy a cappella style. Listeners will immediately recognize the hits from classic shows like Wicked, Pippin, Porgy and Bess, The Sound of Music, Chicago, The Wizard of Oz, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and more. But they've never heard them like this before. Where groups like Post Modern Jukebox, deliver modern songs in old fashioned styles, Blue Jupiter prefers time travel in the opposite direction. Twisted Broadway features classic Broadway songs with a wickedly modern, contemporary a cappella sound.

Songlist: I Got the Sun in the Mornin', Magic to Do, My Favorite Things, Over the Rainbow, Summertime, Defying Gravity, Close Every Door, All That Jazz, Whatever Lola Wants, Put on a Happy Face, Let It Go, Over the Rainbow (Reprise)

Cantabile - The London Quartet : Madrigal to McCartney

"Madrigal" was recorded at Victoria Memorial Hall in Singapore in February 2001, and features 15 tunes, ranging from sacred early Christian music like Weelkes' "Hark, all ye lovely Saints above," Passereau's "Il est bel et bon," and Wm. Byrd's "Agnus Dei" to a wonderful "Tribute to the Beatles" medley of 18 Fab Four classics and "Yesterday," to Gershwin's "Summertime," Rodgers and Hart's "My Romance" and Sinatra's "Strangers in the Night." Two bonus tracks include Richard Rodney Bennett's "A Good Night," commissioned by Paul McCartney from "A Garland for Linda," and "Brahm's Lullaby." Certainly an odd repertoire mix, but Cantabile's perfectly pitched, fresh, joyous sound works well with just about anything they choose to perform.

Songlist: Hark, all ye lovely Saints above , Comment, amour, me veux-tu tourmenter? , Il est bel et bon , Agnus Dei (from the Mass of Four Voices) , A Tribute ot the Beatles , The Compleat Works , The Long Day Closes , Summertime , My Romance , Are You Lonesome Tonight? , Strangers in the Night , Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Yesterday , A Good-Night, Brahms' Lullaby

Voce is San Luis Obispo, CA's Cuesta College's finest Vocal Jazz 9 mixed-voice ensemble, and "Timepieces" is recorded with a hot five-man student Jazz band. Formed in 1981, Voce has won an Outstanding Performance Award from DownBeat, first place at the 1998 Reno Jazz Festival and performances at Switzerland's prestigious Montreaux Jazz Festival. There are 10 cuts on this impressive second album (their first was 2007's excellent "Just One of Those Things"), some favorites among these sometimes accompanied pieces are Michel LeGrand's "I Will Wait for You," Anders Edenroth's a cappella "The Grass Grows Greener," the mellow "Something 'bout Believing," George & Ira Gershwin's classic "Summertime," Thad Jones' moody a cappella "Somna Mitt Barn," a sweet a cappella adaption of Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and Imogen Heap's wonderfully harmonic a cappella "Hide and Seek." Voce has a beautiful sound, creative arrangements, and we loved "Timepieces!"

Gold Company : While We're Young

At first hearing, you wouldn't think that this glorious motley of vocal music is of collegiate standing. Gold Company's "While We're Young", is a CD compilation of ensembles hailing from Western Michigan University, directed by Dr. Stephen Zegree. Each song is flavored with a group of different voices and instruments allowing for individuality and influence to play a strong force. It is apparent that Dr. Zegree really let his students shine through with their styles and that variety is refreshing. R & B, Latin, Southern Dixie, Showtune Standards, Be-bop, and a little bit of Funk are all represented. This is not a straightforward vocal CD, but incorporates a great deal of instrumentation with the vocal ensembles. This CD is highly recommended.

Songlist: I Love Bein' Here With You, Everybody's Boppin', Cheek To Cheek, While We're Young, Gingerbread Boy, Alice In Wonderland, Change Comin' Round, Kick That Monkey, Hoedown, Poinciana, Last Night When We Were Young, Summertime, The Music, The Magic and The Memories

Groove Society : Groove Society

Formed in 2002 by four men and two women, former members of the Univ. of Northern Colorado's Grammy-nominated ensemble, Vocal Jazz 1, Groove Society has a growing reputation for thoughtfully crafted arrangements, intricate rhythms and exhilarating improvisations. Although their roots are firmly planted in the Jazz genre, they perform in a variety of styles, Latin, blues, bebop, rock, pop funk and R&B with their trademark exuberant passion and soul. "Groove Society," their impressive debut CD, features 11 tunes, and it's hard to pick favorites. That said, we really liked Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va," the Gershwins' classic "Summertime," and a "Tribute to Earth, Wind and Fire" medley that few groups would attempt, much less nail as Groove Society has here. Van Morrison's moody "Moondance," the Harry James/Duke Ellington hit "I'm Beginning to See the Light," Chicago's "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" the Doobie Bros.' "Listen to the Music" and the final cut, Barry Manilow's rainy-day "When October Goes" are particularly well done. For such a young group, GS has the poise, the bright, polished sound, the effortless vocal percussion and the cutting-edge arrangements of a veteran group with years of experience singing together. Groove Society is going places fast!

Hi-Lo's : Clap Yo' Hands

Comprising two of their records from the 1950's-1954's "I Presume" and 1958's "In Stereo"-"Clap Yo' Hands" captures the close harmony sound of the Hi-Lo's, who defined the vocal jazz of their era. The playground for the talents of the brilliant arranger Gene Puerling, who went on to form the Singers Unlimited, the Hi-Lo's toured with theJudy Garland show and sang with legends such as Frank Sinatra and Rosemary Clooney. These tracks are orchestrated (by Frank Comstock, who backed the group on many early recordings) and include wonderful standards such as "Summertime," "Long Ago and Far Away," "Surrey With The Fringe On Top" and "Nice Work If You Can Get It." This is a jubilant recording that is alive with the joy of music. We have it on good authority that "Clap Yo' Hands" includes some of the group's favorite songs.

Songlist: Clap Yo' Hands, Long Ave and Far Away, You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby, Shadow Waltz, Chinatown, My Chinatown, Too Young for the Blues, Summertime, You Took Advantage of Me, Birth of the Blues, Surrey With the Fringe on Top, Put Your Dreams Away, Button Up Your Overcoat, Speak Low, Jeepers Creepers, I Thought About You, Nice Work if You Can Get It, Stars Fell on Alabama, Rockin' Chair

Hi-Lo's : Under Glass / I Presume

A spate of Hi-Lo's albums have been recently released on CD, but this may be the most auspicious re-emergence yet: the Hi-lo's first two records, paired up for over an hour's worth of great listening. Though some of the cuts can be found on other recordings, the a cappella "Molly Malone" and "Through The Years" aren't available anywhere else, and the remarkable harmonizations that were Gene Puerling's unique artistry are gloriously displayed in a riot of tonal color. Also, "Georgia On My Mind," and "They Don't Believe Me," from their first 1953 recording session for Trend, are included; the latter was on the previously available "Nice Work If You Can Get It" CD, which has since been discontinued. Anyway, suffice it to say, that among the vocal harmony groups of the 1950's, the Hi-lo's were much imitated, but never duplicated, and their appeal is timeless. Mostly accompanied, with orchestrations by frequent music director Frank Comstock.

Songlist: Summertime, The Birth Of The Blues, Skylark, Through The Years, Shadow Waltz, I'm Beginning to See the Light, Chinatown, My Chinatown, The Surrey With The Fringe On Top, In The Blue Of The Evening, Molly Malone, You're the Top, Long Ago And Far Away, Rockin' Chair, Stars Fell On Alabama, Nice Work If You Can Get It, I Thought About You, This Is The Night, Too Young For The Blues, Jeepers Creepers, Put Your Dreams Away, Button Up Your Overcoat, Speak Low, Shoeless Joe From Hannibal Mo, They Didn't Believe Me, Georgia On My Mind

There are 10 new original songs plus 4 covers and a new arrangement of audience favorite "Bam" on this fine release and the group rocks as always.

Hyannis Sound : Aged 10 Years

In May of 1994 ten young collegiate men, who had been chosen by founder Townsend Belisle, arrived in Cape Cod, Massachusetts with the noble intention of singing together for a living. Creating jobs for themselves by singing on the street, in parks, on beaches and had regular gigs in places like Thompson's Clam Bar and Richard's Galleries. By late summer they had put together a crowd of regulars, an opening act for the Mamas and the Papas, and a sold-out show in Hyannis, which is captured in this live recording. 21 songs, particularly wonderful are: "Good Ol' A Cappella," "Summertime," the Fairfield Four's arrangement of "Roll, Jordan Roll," "Crazy," "House of Blue Lights," "Wonderful World," the traditional "Drunken Sailor," Manhattan Transfer's arrangement of "How High The Moon," Richard Greene's "Share A Load," "Freeze Frame," a lovely "Shenandoah" and "Everything She Wants." It's very clear from the audience response how much fun these guys are having on stage, reveling in the vocal group they have created in such a short time. An inspiring story, a lively live show with an enthusiastic audience, a repertoire well-chosen and arranged. The Sound Is Coming!

Songlist: Good Ol' A Cappella, Sister Goldenhair, Summertime, Spiderman, Roll, Jordan, Crazy, L-Y, House of Blue Lights, Wonderful World, Oh, What a Night, Drunken Sailor, Why Should I Cry for You?, Future Love Paradise, How High the Moon, Share a Load, Captain's Song, Freeze Frame, Shenandoah, World on Fire, Everything She Wants, A Parting Blessing

King's Singers : Original Debut Recording (Cherry Ripe)

The prototype for what has developed into a twenty-five year career that continues to grow in popularity, this initial 1971 recording hints at the dominion the King's Singers have over an astonishing variety of material. Four tracks are a cappella, the rest accompanied by the Gordon Langford Trio (Langford also arranged five of the songs). Traditionals, such as "Shenandoah, "Cherry Ripe" and "Scarborough Fair" are side-by-side with Gershwin's "Summertime" and Bacharach's "Wives and Lovers." Stylistically, the King's Singers combine formal classical knowledge with the immaculate blend of a barbershop chorus and the personality of English music hall performers appearing on the "Old Grey Whistle Test." No wonder they've stood the test of time!

Lambert, Hendricks and Ross : Everybody's Boppin'

To listen to this trio reveals what a great influence this group has been on so many artists, in terms of choice of material and style. The most sophisticated and hip vocal treatments - Hendricks was a foremost developer of the vocalese technique - they change moods on a dime and are impossible to predict. Ross takes the lead on "Midnight Indigo," a sultry trickle of sweat on the back of the neck. "Moanin'" mixes up roadhouse blues with the sweetest of refrains. "Summertime" is just on the inside of a discordant wail, an eerie lament. Also included: "Cloudburst" and "Centerpiece."

The Marcels : Summertime

Beginning with this mixed (three black & two white) group's initial success with 'Blue Moon,' which was #1 on the Pop and R&B charts in 1961 (displacing none other than Elvis), the Marcels carved out an unmistakeable niche in the annals of pop history. It is their 'bomp baba bomp...da dang da dang, da ding a dong ding' bass intro, heard on 'Zoom,' 'That Lucky Old Sun' and others that is forever in the ear of every doo-wop audience, casual or otherwise. 'Blue Moon' is not on this CD, but pretty much of the rest of the Marcels recorded output is; like many other groups, personnel departed more consistently than they remained, so some cuts are stronger than others. Signature songs such as 'Summertime,' 'Over The Rainbow,' 'Sunday Kind Of Love' and 'I Put The Bomp' display a flair and musicality a cut above the average and are terrific R & B tinged doo-wop.

Songlist: Zoom, A Sunday Kind of Love, Teeter Totter Love, Over The Rainbow, I Could Have Danced All Night, Summertime, Where There's A Will, Why Do You Have To Go, I Put The Bomp, That Lucky Old Sun, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind, Spanish Harlem, Save The Last Dance For Me, I'll Be Forever Loving You, Two People In The World, Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart, Got A Job, Stormy Weather, When I'm With You, For Your Precious Love, That Lucky Old Sun, Close Your Eyes, Soul Dinner, You Gave Me Peace Of Mind

Nexus Quartet : Nexus    onsale

This Denver-based quartet has roots in the Denver A Cappella Project, and includes tenor George (of 1982 Gold Medal-winners Classic Collection), his son Mike, baritone, bass Mark and lead Ryan. At the 2007 Barbershop Harmony Society contest in Denver, Following the release of this, their debut recording, NeXus moved up from 27th place to 19th place in the elite top 20 in only their 3rd year of competition. We particularly appreciated the songlist in the liner notes, that included some of the group's influences: "Just A Gigolo," inspired by Classic Collection, "The Dock of the Bay" and "Stand By Me," inspired by Rockapella, and "Don't Worry Be Happy," inspired by the Blenders. Other favorites are "Orange Colored Sky," "Gospel Medley," a bluesy "Summertime," "Under the Boardwalk," and "Mean to Me." Great stuff from this popular, fast-rising, veteran quartet!

Quintessence SF : The Joy of Six

What a find! After well over a decade of selling a cappella recordings those joyous days of discovering unknown a cappella artists are fewer but we have just come across another great a cappella talent in Ottawa-based sextet Quintessence. Influenced by groups such as The Manhattan Transfer, Les Swingle Singers and Singers Unlimited the group brings it's own jazzy style to a a wide variety of repertoire, from big-band through to hits of recent years and some original material. The group arranged most all of the songs themselves bringing freshness to these great standards that are a real pleasure to hear. The voices blend very well and there are a couple of very strong solos especially those of Marion Xhignesse and Susan Mayo. A recommended release for vocal jazz aficionados.

Songlist: Acoustic Souvenirs, Goody Goody, Girl From Impanema, Les Duettistes, The Man I Love, I Got A Gal In Kalamazoo, Summertime, Planesong Blues, Les Feuilles Mortes, Lullaby Of Birdland, Route 66, When I Fall In Love, I Can Recall Spain, Kelly Danielle's Lullaby

Regency : Regency

Five guys came out of the Somerset Housing Projects in Baltimore who sang anywhere and everywhere-at the Jack in the Box they were known as the Box Boys. That name changed to Regency, and with many collegiate music awards and some personnel changes later, the group tours over 300 universities and colleges a year. At 1 pm on June 27, 1994, Regency went into the recording studio to eat Philly steaks and fries, and to sing and sing some more. At 10 pm they had finished an incredible recording session, 21 songs completed a cappella without overdubs or studio trickery. Some favorites are a pair of Presley covers, "Jailhouse Rock" and "Hound Dog," Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode," Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," The Righteous Bros' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," Sam Cooke's "Only Sixteen," James Brown's "I Got You," The Young Rascals' "Good Lovin'," "The Most Beautiful Girl In the World," the Isley Bros' "Shout," and "Day-O" (Banana Boat Song). This is the authentic street corner Doo Wop, with a bunch of guys who know each other as absolutely as they know the songs. This CD is a remarkable achievement and a real treat!

Songlist: Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Johnny B Goode, I'm Ready, Tutti Frutti, Don't Play That Song, You've Last That Lovin' Feeling, Can't Help Falling In Love With You, Higher And Higher, Only Sixteen, Baby Watcha Want Me To Do/ Bright Lights Big City Medley, I Got You (I Feel Good), Summertime, Good Lovin', Let's Get It On, The Most Beautiful Girl In The World, It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday, Lady Soul, Sadie, Shout, Day-O (Banana Boat Song)

Roger Emerson : Summertime

Unlike the original ballad heard in the opera Porgy and Bess and sung by a high soprano, here is an easy swing rendition and placed in a key that is comfortable for developing voices. The section with a written out scat solo can be easily repeated for those choirs learning to improvise.
