Gershwin’s Summertime

March 12, 2008

I’ve had the house to myself these last two days and actually managed to be fairly productive during that time. Research is going well for my latest essay and I’ve managed to write quite a bit. Not only that but THE HOUSE IS TIDY!!!!!

By eight o’clock last night I was ready to sit with my feet up. What I really wanted was a chilled glass of Chardonnay, what I got was a glass of Irn Bru and a packet of crisps!  I should’ve been more organised.

Anyway! What I’m trying to get round to is that I ended up watching Michael Parkinson’s last show (again) when he put together his best interviews since the 70s. Some are smart, some funny, some beautiful, some gifted beyond measure and some oozing so much charisma that you’re left speechless.

Here’s Larry Adler and Itzhak Perlman performing Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’. It’s perfection.

Enjoy!
