This cherished Gershwin melody from Porgy and Bess is a certain audience and band pleaser. The accompaniment is playable by less-experienced ensembles, and what a wonderful way to feature a male or female vocalist. Optional parts for solo trumpet or solo alto saxophone are also included, so you can be creative with featuring a variety of soloists. Musical through-and-through! (2:46)
