There is also something to be said of the arrangement played here which for me does at least explore some of the harmonic as well as melodic possibilities in the Gershwin song. The tempo has a hesitant lilt to it and the lullaby is not lost in this performance.
The highly expressive Joplin vocals contrast pleasingly to the simple supporting parts that remain understated throughout. It has become one of the most iconic interpretations of Summertime.
As you might anticipate, this version is placed firmly in the Jazz genre. It has a very laid back swing-feel to it throughout. Davis plays characteristically on his melancholy, muted trumpet broadly following the original Gershwin melody. It would be a major oversight in an article such as this one not to include the Fitzgerald and Armstrong version of this song. The setting here is very much more closely modelled on the Gershwin operatic scoring and makes full use Summertime a rich string section with French horns and percussion to accompany.
Another appealing element in this version is when both Ella and Armstrong sing together with Armstrong gently lapsing into his distinctive scat singing. This arrangement has received many an accolade and is amongst the most enduring of the interpretations. Here is a quite different interpretation of Summertime, this time by the ever popular Willie Nelson. Nelson is perhaps better known for his contributions to Country music and this arrangement has a subtle blues-country feel throughout that compliments the original song.
Sadly, the track is a very brief rendition of Summertime but it has a sleek, almost Henry Mancini feel to it. Williams reportedly conducts the orchestra in this performance which has all the Summertime of this now legendary film composer.
With the exception of an inventive keyboard solo, the form of the song is broadly as Gershwin intended it to be. This recording has all the aspects of most Cooke tracks from the time with a Latin, offbeat string bass, flat wound string guitar chords and ethereal backing vocals. Sam Cooke also takes certain liberties with the original melody that are very much in keeping with the music of the time and illustrate many of the traits of his gospel roots.
A more up to date interpretation of this Gershwin standard. Sublime the band was what came to be a fusion between Ska and Punk and ushered in the third wave of Ska music. Whilst elements of the original Summertime clearly audible in the track, the band superimpose their own lyrics over the existing song material, using just chord patterns against a ska beat to create their song.
