Summertime is the lullaby sung by Clara at the beginning of the first act in Porgy and Bess. It is certainly the most famous aria from this opera. Summertime, like many of Gershwin's other works, has become a classic jazz standard. This piece has been performed in every possible style: jazz, Latin, pop, blues, folk, fusion etc. and by all the greatest musicians.
