Noon Edition

Songs of the Season: Summer

Songs about June, three pairs of performances (from Louis Armstrong, June Christy, and Nat King Cole), and a couple of 1970s recordings from saxophonist Art Pepper and guitarist George Benson that feature, respectively, an old summer standard and a then-new summer standard make up this year's "Songs of the Season: Summer" edition. We'll also hear singer Janiece Jaffe performing Italian songwriter Bruno Martino and Bruno Brighetti's "In Summer" (or "Estate").

Watch Ella Fitzgerald sing "Summertime" in concert:
