An Evening with Henry Russell (1977)

Nonesuch H-71338

Clifford Jackson, baritone
William Bolcom, piano

This was a thrift shop find (99¢), along with three other Nonesuch LPs featuring William Bolcom. They all had a "Promotion Copy" sticker, and they were all in excellent condition.

I really enjoy Bolcom's piano playing; I'll listen to any music when he is the accompanist, some I wouldn't otherwise listen to.

Bolcom is also a composer of note. His "Graceful Ghost" is a personal favorite.
