15 Summertime
Sidney Bechet-Summertime

Sidney Bechet (1897-1959), I really love his version of this Gershwin song.  I think it was recorded in 1939, it’s on a few of his collections

    Interesting bit of trivia….
    Did you know that most musicians from that era are dead?
    In fact, every notable jazz and blues musician born prior to 1900 is deceased.
    Same goes for politicians and athletes.
    Weird, huh?
