Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high

So hush, little baby, don't you cry

My grandmother worked at the Blue Note in Chicago..she new Louis, Ella, Oscar Petersen and other great artists that were performing at the Blue Note..She lived on the north side of Chicago in a 3 bed room town house..she rented rooms to most of the performers at her home during there time in Chicago.

Both of these artists are "they broke the mold" and they led hard, sad lives only because of the color of their skin???????? what a tragedy. when will we see movies made of THEIR life stories? there is no one alive that can even approach them in the finish and artistry of their music.
Love, love, love this song!:) Ella and Louie at their best. Live on Summertime!
