George Gershwin’s Porgy & Bess
Russell Garcia & Orchestra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong
Duration: 01:06:11

Ella’s rendition of ‘Summer Time’ is possibly the greatest I’ve ever heard. Louis Armstrong is also wonderful: this isn’t an operatic rendition of the work, then. More a classic Jazz rendition featuring the greats… but none the worse for that!
