HAPPY BIRTHDAY: WILLIAM BOLCOM

William Bolcom with his wife, mezzo-soprano Joan Morris

Award-winning American composer William Bolcom’s birthday was yesterday, actually, but we were so delighted with Zoë Lewis’ guest appearance, we decided to pay a brief tribute to him today.

Sad news, Bolcom/Morris’ album of George and Ira Gershwin songs is not available on Spotify or YouTube, but you can purchase it on Amazon.com:

Check out the lyrics for William Bolcom’s song ‘Lime Jell-O Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise’ (Genius)

Listen to the song, performed by William Bolcom’s wife, mezzo-soprano Joan Morris:
