Restaurant Santa Lucia

‘Summertime’ by Charlie Parker is the Restaurant Santa Lucia Song of the Day!

Summertime in Montréal means Jazz, food and fun!

Here is one of the greats playing Summertime!

Summertime” is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin by ASCAP.

The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as “without doubt … one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote … Gershwin’s highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century”.[2] Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim has characterized Heyward’s lyrics for “Summertime” and “My Man’s Gone Now” as “the best lyrics in the musical theater”.[3] The song is recognized as one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers.

‘Music, Martinis and Memories’ by Jackie Gleason is the Santa Lucia Song Of The Day !

How sweet it is!

Yes that’s right, the one and only Jackie Gleason from the hit show The Honeymooners and films like Gigot, Smokey And The Bandit, The Hustler and many more!

He was also a huge admirer of romantic music. So what does a genius do? Make their own of coarse!

Sit back, relax, have a martini or maybe pop open a bottle of your favorite wine and savour the sexy, smooth sounds of “The Great One” Mr. Jackie Gleason!
