Listening to New Worlds, the debut album by Bill Murray, Jan Vogler and Friends has been an invigorating experience for me, it’s beautiful to hear the marriage of literature and melodies. Many people know American actor and comedian Bill Murray for his diverse film appearances, but lately he’s been honing another talent: reciting great excerpts of American literature and a little singing too. Alongside German cellist Jan Vogler, Venezuelan pianist Vanessa Perez and Chinese violinist Mira Wang, Bill Murray has been appearing internationally in concerts singing classic American songs from Stephen Foster to Stephen Sondheim and reading prose and poetry from the great American authors.
