Download Khari Mateen’s cover of George Gershwin’s “Summertime”
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.
