It's been a long time since I posted my last tune, but don't be afraid, that does not mean that I have given up...it is only that I was taking a little break.
The song I am posting today is one of those Gerswhin's well-known jazz classics which have been played by almost every jazz musician since long ago but, nevertheless, still sound fresh and are interesting to play: Summertime.
It's only two minutes long but full of nice licks and, most of all, fun. I hope you like it.
I'd like to dedicate this to my good friend Guillermo Chaminade, who encouraged me to keep on recording all these cover versions. When someone likes what you play, why stopping doing it?
If you want to compare, here are some other very different (amateur) versions that I found in YouTube. Compare them with mine and tell me which one you like the most. And if you want to listen to a really good one, try Ella's. Simply unsurpassable.
