Morris and Bolcom collaborated in another successful recording in 1990, Blue Skies: Songs by Irving Berlin, on the Nonesuch label. That same year, Morris appeared in the premiere of Casino Paradise, described as a musical theater opera, with music by Bolcom and lyrics by Arnold Weinstein. Again, a successful recording ensued, this one on the Koch Classics label. In May 1993, Morris was featured on Charles Kuralt's CBS Sunday Morning with Bolcom
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.
