I have been singing Summertime, from Porgy and Bess, by George Gershwin, DuBose, Heyward and Ira Gershwin.
I started singing this to Baby SOH when she was a little baby, during her first summer months.
I love the melody, but especially the words.
Oh your daddy’s rich, and your mumma’s good looking …
I love those lines.
Today I sang it again, and for the first time, I heard a little voice along with me. First, it chimed in on “easy”, and then her little voice seems to move along with mine and we were both singing together. There were some words there some of the time, but what I heard most was the lovely melody.
What a lovely experience. I will always remember that, Baby SOH, we shared it together, we always have, but now she is more than a listener.
Communicative musicality. We are living it Baby SOH.
