Blue Skies - Songs Of Irving Berlin. Joan Morris is a mezzo-soprano who has recorded a number of albums accompanied by her husband, composer and pianist William Bolcom. She has a lovely voice, and sings the old Tin Pan Alley and similar genre songs straight in the way they were written, without a lot of jazz embellishment. Not that jazz embellishment is bad, it just doesn't always work with this material. I'm a big fan of hers, so my opinions may be a little biased; but if you love this music it's hard to not enjoy Morris singing it. This is one of two albums devoted to Irving Berlin.

Blue Skies" is a popular song, written by Irving Berlin in 1926. The song was composed in 1926 as a last-minute addition to the Rodgers and Hart musical Betsy. Although the show ran for 39 performances only, "Blue Skies" was an instant success, with audiences on opening night demanding 24 encores of the piece from star Belle Baker. During the final repetition, Ms. Baker forgot her lyrics, prompting Berlin to sing them from his seat in the front row. Surprise - Cabaret songs by Bolcom, Satie & Schoenberg.
