Hi all. I've recorded a cover of the famous "Summertime"

The recording is just me and two guitars, I know my voice screws up right at the begining but apart from that I think I did ok.

T'is on my profile, C4C.

Could you suggest how to improve the singing?

Try to put more emotion into it. I know it sounds cliche'd but try to really 'feel' the groove. At the moment it's slightly robotic, try messing about with the timeing and melody and just try to add some more vibrato and that kind of stuff.

You sing well in tune, but they way you're singing doesn't fit the tune at all. The guitar doesn't really help your case either - the chord voicings aren't very good, the tone is brittle and the playing is staccato.

It's not really bad though, it could just be better. I think you should tone your voice down a little bit and use some vibrato. Most importantly listen to other recordings of jazz singers doing this tune to get an idea of what I mean.
