A Pair to Draw From: Bolcom and Morris's new CD seems anything but autumnal 
"Bolcom and Morris recently released their latest CD on White Pine Music, the label of the Central Michigan University School of Music. It's called Autumn Leaves, and it's a collection of songs the duo has performed for years but never included on any of their previous albums, partly because they didn't fit into the various themes of those earlier programs (turn-of-the-century songs, Jerome Kern, etc.). There are fewer accompanists nimbler than Bolcom, and he provides the ideal foundation for Morris's warmly intimate interpretations." --Brian Kellow, Opera News, April 2016 (Download PDF)
