Musical Mondays – Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

As I stated in my June highlights, I’m featuring the same song each Monday this month. What is that song? “Summertime,” of course! It was a tune composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess.

First up, the incredible duo of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, two of the most amazing jazz artists who have ever lived. My heart melts a little each time I hear them sing, and listening to their version of this song certainly raises the heat as summer approaches.

Enjoy and stay sexy,

Eden

  1. Eden, I don’t even need to hear it to love it. It’s one of my favorite albums ever. I’m a huge Gershwin fan and have seen Porgy and Pess many times in many different formats and many different places. But this version? Louis and Ella? Best ever.
