Summertime by George GershwinSummertime
and the livin is easy,
Fish are jumpin,
and the cotton is high... Nothing captures the feelings of summer better than the much-loved song from Porgy and Bess, Summertime. Its majestic imagery and deep spirituality touch listeners today as they have for generations. Now, with acclaimed illustrator Mike Wimmers lush oil paintings depicting a familys routine one summer day earlier in this century, an American classic takes on a whole new meaning. Including the score of the song, Summertime is both a gentle book for family sharing and a lavish gift to be treasured.
