We’re in the throws of summertime, folks. As if the burning sun and humid air wasn’t enough to tip you off. To celebrate, eclectic local producer / electronic artist / songwriter / visionary Khari Mateen recorded a suave cover of the George Gershwin standard, intermingling funky beats, graceful string parts, and breathless singing; the cover art (above) strikes a warm and comforting seasonal vibe, with Mateen jamming on cello and surrounded by verdant greenery in his Manayunk backyard. Ease on up and listen to it below, or grab a free download at Bandcamp.
