What will Bill Murray do next?
The beloved actor's curiosity seems boundless. It should be no surprise, then, to learn that his new project finds him paired with a classical cellist.
Jan Vogler and Murray met a few years back on an overseas flight, where the seeds of an idea were planted. The result is New Worlds, their new show which makes its U.S. debut at Festival Napa Valley on July 20, and will be released as an album in August. The performance features Murray singing a little Gershwin and reciting a little Whitman. Vogler, along with violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez, provide a soundtrack of Schubert, Bach and Piazzolla.
Murray isn't new to either singing or poetry. As Nick the Lounge Singer, he crooned the Star Wars theme on Saturday Night Live. In the film Lost in Translation, he sang a wobbly yet wistful version of Roxy Music's "More Than This."
