A lyrical parody of Gershwin's Summertime with a jazz rock arrangement played by Hugh Hamilton and myself.It was recorded in Philadelphia 2008 at Hughs home studio. The production has numerous quotes in it including the Bach intro, and Beatles electric guitar. This is on my cd White Stoned Cowboy.

Hugh on bass, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, banjo and percussion.
Dick on acoustic guitar, Vocals, alto saxophone, flute, drums.

Wintertime and the livin' ain't so easy
the fish ain't jumpin' they're all under the ice
your momma's a witch and when your daddy ain't lookin'
she crushes little babies bones for her pies

One of these nights you're gonna wake up screamin'
and you'll fall to the floor in surprise
your fight or flight is all the might save you
once mommy slips daddy her cyanide

your fight or flight is all the might save you
once mommy slips daddy her cyanide
so hush little baby
don't you cry
cuz mommy and daddy were born to die

Joy To the World
Stellar picking lovely Coolness, winter time vs summertime. tripping guitar ,tasty vibe with Aven

One of the first jazzers and overall wickedly talented musicians i ever heard at "iacmusic" back in the day. ripping and tearing it up with his rendition of "summertime" except eYe dare say it is pretty hot as wintertime. Whoa, is this based on a true story, i think so. okay, drink up that hot toddy...awesome work by the outrageously uber talented, Dick Aven.. eYe eYe and Bye bye. have a nice wintertime

Over The Moon
