Summertime project: Amalia Rodrigues

Out of nowhere comes this otherworldly voice…

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:


– All audio tracks were found and gifted to me by my mentor FLORIN STAN. He lives in the city of Baia Mare, in Northern Transylvania, Romania, Europe.
