Summertime project: Amalia Rodrigues

Music collector (and mentor) Florin Stan – of Baia Mare, Romania – compiled a list of thousands of versions of the 1935-classic “Summertime” by George Gershwin (lyrics are by DuBose Heyward).
I will pepper your summer days with some of the unbelievably hard-to-find versions from Florin’s collection.

Listen to Amalia Rodrigues singing Summertime:
