MUSIC REVIEW | Willie Nelson – Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin (2016)

In a nutshell, Bored & Dangerous says: “The advantage of being a musical icon for six decades is that Nelson is almost his own genre, putting his very distinctive spin on things, whether he’s trying to or not.”

Old standards written by Ira and George Gershwin upwards of 80 years ago, performed by an icon who a made a name for himself in the 50s. “Fresh” certainly isn’t the word to describe Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin, but freshness isn’t what this record’s going for.
