SIT BACK AND UNWIND…IT’S SUMMER!

In honor of the first day of summer (and in acknowledgement that my summer songs series has been folded into The Sidebar but won’t be free-standing this year), please read this excellent interview by the Village Voice‘s Jason Newman with DJ Jazzy Jeff about the enduring beauty of “Summertime.”

By the way, how the hell did I not know about this Jazzy Jeff/Mick Boogie “Summertime” mixtape from last year?
