The Summertime project: Bobby Womack and The Roots

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