Description
Another 'live' vocal/guitar rendition of yet another old standard, this one - Summertime. This and the other live tunes I've been posting were performed at the Santa Barbara Convalescent Hospital (recently renamed the Californian) around 2008. I'm posting a number of these tunes, not that they are 'all that and a box of biscuits', just to have a spot where they can exist as part of my musical sojourn record. Thanks for listening...

Composer: George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward, 1934

I used to do
something similar as a kid. My mom would take me to Cottage and I'd play for some of the patients. I remember a lady who was probably 50ish looking at me and saying sing! I was too self conscious but she stood up and started to sing as I played some folk tune and soon we had everyone humming along! Nicely done!

As you know...
Playing for these older folk and those in rehab is a unique experience. One that is very gratifying. Thanks for your story, Mark...

Keep the treasures coming
It's so good to hear songs that were created back in the 30's.. We don't have to steel ourselves for lewd lyrics, like lots of songs bering written today. Thank you for sharing!

Hey Roxylee...
These old songs are indeed gems. Not much being written today like them. So learn them and listen to them when you can. More on the way... what can I say! ;)
