265: Summertime showdown 2009!

Hi.

When I was going to work earlier this week,
it stuck me how cold it really was...
No bad weather, mind you, but the crops are coming of
the fields, goose gather and leaves are starting to
get brown and fall down...
Yeah, Summertime 2009 is coming to an end [:-)
-
So, here it is, almost 50 versions I gathered
from around the globe, with very special thanks to
Swboy, a certain Sherlock and a mad Lion Tamer...
Also a hug to Fat Toro, Simon666 (as always! :-)
and all the other good, good folks I met this Summer.
(and the last couple of years, ofcourse!)
-
Hope you'll have some fun with these last rays of Summertime.

A giant effort! I'm glad I could contribute some tracks. Too bad there was no Summertime on Mel Dancy's lovely album - pretty sure you would have loved it! lol

All the best!

Thanks for all the summertimes. :^)
Comparing these has been a great lesson on how to improvise.
Good tune to use too. Its simple and easy to follow.

Did you come across this yet?

Seems you won't be ready to listen to all of them till next summer.
But one version was missing I found on an old private cassette. Its from Eddie Jefferson.

And here I found some more not listed in yours or the big collection:
