Song of the week: Summertime, Mica Paris
Porgy and Bess is one of my all time favorites (and I just checked, but I do not have this listed on my favorite musicals list... shame on me!) When I first started dating Michael... I would make him listen to George Gershwin's An American in Paris over and over again (in between sessions of King Crimson). There is nothing like a Gershwin tune, ya know? Thankfully he liked it.
I heard Mica Paris a number of years ago on some radio program and thought-- what a wonderfully soulful voice- rich and textured. Then to hear her singing Summertime.... the song and her voice are simply a marriage made in the music heavens... sheer perfection. George Gershwin would most definitely approve.
No words today... too hot... Imagine yourself on a front porch sitting in an old rocking chair... it creaks just a tad. You are down south somewhere... possibly in Mobile, Pascagoula, Baton Rouge or down in the Big Easy... sipping some iced lemonade, or maybe you prefer some sweet tea....listening to the background buzz of locusts in the trees and just wishin' and hopin' for a breeze...
Enjoy your Sunday. It's going to be a hot lazy one here.

Have a great week everyone!
