George Gershwins idea to write Porgy and Bess can be traced to 1926 when he first read the novel Porgy by DuBose Heyward, which was set on the fictitious Catfish Row in the Deep South. After signing a deal with the author, Gershwin began composing in 1934 and Heyward wrote the words to Summertime. The song appears more than once in the opera. The first recording of the song from 1935 features Gershwin himself on the piano and Abbie Mitchell, who played Clara, singing. It is astonishingly beautiful and has been remarkably well preserved.
