I don’t know about you, but it feels like summertime where I live! And I discovered this song just in time to get the summer season into high gear.

We all know the Gershwin classic “Summertime”, but Stewart’s cover features scat singing, tight drumming, and a blaring trumpet section that builds into a crescendo unlike any other version I’ve heard before.

So here’s to a happy summer full of great music!
