Hmm... sounds familiar, but can't quite place it. I'll keep listening...

Hey Boxboy, the lessons have been incredibly fun and I feel like I'm learning a lot right now. I did some improvising last night that actually sounded like music to my ears (rather than scales) and my instructor said he liked my ideas. 8)

Dan, keep at it. The song is from another era and genre.

Our first clue...

I did not know this until I started researching the song a few weeks back, but the song is from a 1935 opera

A second clue...

This song is considered one of the two most covered songs (perhaps behind a Beatles' song) and has been covered by the likes of Chet Baker and Janis Joplin.

Ok, I think I've got it:

Summertime by George Gershwin - the opera would be Porgy & Bess?

You got it Dan. Nice version you linked into your answer. I enjoyed it.

For a little contrast, check out this version by Janis Joplin.
