Summertime – Kat Edmonson

Artist: Kat Edmonson

Song: Summertime

Genre: Jazz

“Summertime” has been performed live by many incredible artists tens of thousands of times. There might be a better version of “Summertime” than Kat Edmonson’s somewhere but I do not believe it has been recorded yet.

Edmonson’s particular stylistic approach is unique and satisfying for two reasons—the high-quality arrangements by pianist Kevin Lovejoy and Edmonson’s own quirky synthesis of nymph-like timbre and classic jazz phrasing.

Edmonson’s first statement is bold. Though jazz singers have covered the Gershwin standard “Summertime” ad nauseam, she shows why the classic song deserves just one more chance. –Brad Mehldau
