I also really love this song so much...
So I created a 100-versions blog with well known, beautiful and sometimes surprising versions of Summertime.

bluechel & van deylen covered it too.
Hi I have 2 versions not on your list, both US 45s. One by The Plaids, the other by The Raptures. Both quite obscure 45s.
ich habe eine weitere Fassung des Titels für Euch: Im Jahre 1956 ist auf einem Tefifon-Schallband (Jazz-Parade, TD/S 2221) Summertime in einer coolen Fassung mit Hans Koller und seinen New Jazz Stars erschienen.

I am looking for a summertime version I had back in the eighties. It is a live recording by a violin and a (big band). It starts of slow with the violin and than the band comes in fast. I thought it was Stephan Grappelli but I can't find it.

Wonderful work, Thank you for your contribution to the world. Now I just have to track down versions from the artist I know on your list and have a listening party with a pal who has similar tastes.

Looks like you've missed a wonderful version of Summertime by Zombies
