Summer songs

24 posts in this topic

I'd be interested to hear some tiles of jazz pieces involving summer.  Of course, most of these would be popular songs intepreted by jazz artists.  For instance, I have countless versions of "Summertime."  There would also be these:

  • Summer Night
  • The Summer Knows 
  • Summer Song (Brubeck)
  • Summer Day (Metheny/Medhladau)
  • Once Upon a Summertime 
  • The Longest Summer (Metheny)
  • Hothouse
  • The Heat's On
  • When Summer Comes (Oscar Peterson)

I'll be seeing you In every lovely summer's day

Comes the summer, you can hide behind the door

The song is old, The summer days are through

Like the drip, drip, drip of the raindrops When the summer shower is through

Evening summer breeze Sweet warblings of the meadowlark Moonlight in Vermont

The snow looked like dew and the blossoms as on a summer day.

But in your arms I melt away Like ice cream on a summer's day

Our summer day withers away too soon, too soon


That's for Billie, I guess the number of quotes  would quadruple with Sinatra.

I've always liked this one.  It's not jazz but it's close enough:
