Sorry to drag up an old thread! (It has been interesting re-reading it though
Anyway...the need to sing Summertime in the Ella Fitzgerald bluesy style has returned as a niggle and I won't be happy until I've attempted it! Almost four years on (
) from this thread being started, I would like to think my voice has progressed well enough to attempt Summertime (still not in the original key though). I was just coming up to grade one singing then, and am now grade five.
I've been doing a search for a transposed version but have had no luck so far. Does anybody have a copy or know of a good transcription I could get hold of please?
(For those who have heard me sing, please fee free to add any comments as to why I should/shouldn't attempt this. Thanks).
