Does anyone know this song?

Postby kidburla » Fri Jun 20, 2008 5:47 pm

I am trying to identify a song played by Lil Ed & The Blues Imperials in May 2008 at the B.L.U.E.S. bar, Chicago. I don't think it is one of their own songs though - perhaps it is a cover of JB Hutto or some other famous artist? Anyway please have a listen to this short clip which I recorded at the gig and see if you can let me know what it is?

Thanks in advance!

Okay but do you know which version of Summertime? Certainly the lyrics are from Summertime but I don't know this particular version musically.

It's just Summertime. Old favorite for improvisation. Doubt it's any version but Little Ed and the Imperials' version. Listen, jam along and come up with your own.
