Summertime

From the musical

Porgy and Bess



Music by George Gershwin, Lyrics by Ira Gershwin

"Summertime" is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin by ASCAP.[

The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as "without doubt ... one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote ... Gershwin's highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century". Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim has characterized Heyward's lyrics for "Summertime" and "My Man's Gone Now" as "the best lyrics in the musical theater" The song is recognized as among the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers

David Blackwell / Andrew Carter (Edited by) : In the Mood - SATB bestseller

In the mood is an anthology of choral arrangements of seventeen classic popular songs by great names such as Fats Waller, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, and Richard Rogers. All the pieces are expertly arranged to suit the needs of amateur SATB groups looking for lighter popular repertoire -- school choirs, youth schoirs, or chamber choirs of any description. There's a mixture of accompanied and unaccompanied numbers, and a variety of styles: smoky blues, up-tempo sat, sentimental swing, exuberant Dixieland, sophisticated close-harmony, plu an opulent show-stopper or two like 'Somewhere over the rainbow'.

Songlist: Ain't Misbehavin', Autumn Leaves, Begin the Beguine, Blue Moon, The Continental, Deep Purple, I Got Rhythm, Laura, Let's Do It (Let's Fall in Love), Over the Rainbow, She Was Beautiful , Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, Summertime, 'S Wonderful, Tea for Two , Night and Day, In the Mood

Various Arrangers : Women's Jazz 3 : SSAA : Sheet Music

Various Arrangers : Women's Jazz 3

Sung either soli or solo, the front section of 'Give Me the Simple Life' really sets up this chart for success. A written-out bass solo leads into an a cappella SSAA quartet feature that is 'a real gas!' Back to the bridge, on through a key change to the classic Basie "Splanky" ending. Suitable for contest or concert. Freytag's latin version of 'Summertime' will be fun for the singers and the audience. 'Playrooms' is an a cappella jazz waltz, that will set a gentle tone in your program. The text, written by Jackie Farrell, describes the beauty of young children and of the simple joys often forgotten by adults. 'Queen of Hearts' is a playful, easy to sing yet very full sounding version of this repeated pop and country top ten hit. The lead moves from part to part, giving the upper three parts each a chance to sing the melody. The alto 2 "bass line" features plenty of lyrics and countermelodies as well. 'I Remember Clifford,' a classic Benny Golson tune, is set here for female voices and a torch-style soloist. The tribute to jazz great and trumpet player, Clifford Brown, has remained a jazz standard since first introduced. The lush harmonies provide a beautiful setting for Golson's tribute. The soloist has freedom to sing the line as written or develop her own solo line.

Songlist: Give Me the Simple Life, Summertime, Playrooms, Queen of Hearts, I Remember Clifford

Unlike the original ballad heard in the opera Porgy and Bess and sung by a high soprano, here is an easy swing rendition and placed in a key that is comfortable for developing voices. The section with a written out scat solo can be easily repeated for those choirs learning to improvise.
