Bill Murray is clearly a man of many talents. Add to that classical music artist. Murray was on a flight from Berlin to New York when he met and befriended cellist Jan Vogler. That chance meeting has led to New Worlds, an album due out this September via Decca Gold. It features spoken word vocals from Murray, reading works by Ernest Hemingway, Mark Twain, Walt Whitman, and others. The ensemble also features Mira Wang (violin) and Vanessa Perez (piano). Below is the album’s unsequenced tracklist, followed by some upcoming concerts from Murray and Vogler.
