Thread Name: Origins: Summertime (Gershwin, et al.)
Subject: RE: Summertime
If you like "Summertime" you might be interested in another song that can be found here called ALL THE PRETTY LITTLE HORSES. I don't have any confirmation on this but I've always been told this folksong is the prototype for Gershwin's classic piece. Same theme and a very similar melody.
