Happy birthday, Bill

American composer and pianist William Bolcom (b. 1938) wrote “Lime Jello Marshmallow Cottage Cheese Surprise” in 1980 for his wife and collaborator, Joan Morris, and the two of them have been performing it together ever since.

  2. We had the pleasure of seeing Bolcom and Morris in concert at Alfred University in the late 1970s. We had heard their recordings many times on the radio. The live performance was n-degrees better.

  3. I ate Lime Jello marshmallow cottage cheese surprise many times at my grandmother’s table. It’s actually kinda good. Who knew there was a song about it? Thanks for the delightful surprise. 😀

  4. To become well known it must have been a good performance but I somehow missed hearing about it or the song. —- 🙂 — Suzanne
