SCOTT WALKER / ART FARMER : THE SUMMER KNOWS

Άλλο ένα κλασικό τραγούδι του Michel Legrand, σε δυο εκδοχές : ο Scott Walker από το “συνεφιλικό” άλμπουμ του [The Moviegoer, 1971] και ο τρομπετίστας Art Farmer [εδώ στο flugelhorn] παρέα με τους Cedar Walton – piano, Sam Jones – bass, Billy Higgins – drums, απ’ το ομότιτλο άλμπουμ του 1976.
Another
Michel Legrand classic, in two versions : Scott Walker from his cinephile album [Moviegoer, 1971], and the trumpeter Art Farmer [here on the flugelhorn] with Cedar Walton – piano, Sam Jones – bass, Billy Higgins – drums, from the album by the same name [1976].

00:00 Scott Walker’s version 3:22 Art Farmer’s version

The summer smiles, the summer knows
And unashamed, she sheds her clothes
The summer smoothes the restless sky
And lovingly she warms the sand
On which you lie
The summer knows, the summer’s wise
She sees the doubts within your eyes
And so she takes her summertime
Tells the moon to wait and the sun to linger
Twists the world ’round her summer finger
Lets you see the wonder of it all
And if you’ve learned your lesson well
There’s little more for her to tell
One last caress
It’s time to dress
For fall
And if you’ve learned your lesson well
There’s little more for her to tell
One last caress
It’s time to dress
For fall

    Classic, to me, in a sense.
    What beauty through my ears, and into me.
