Description
The ragtime-infused Caricature Dance Suite of 1924 ("Snickertyskip," "Jabbertyflip," "Swaggerhop," and "Burlesque March") opens this varied set of instrumental and vocal works by "the Dean of Northwest Composers." It also includes his impressionistic Americanistic Etude and An April Suite (both 1924); the 1965 tone poem From My Tahoe Window ("Sunrise," "A Morning Mood," "Storm Clouds"); Every Flower That Ever Grew (1969; a setting of an ancient Irish song and text); the fantastical two-piano work Dancing in a Dream (1945), evoking a Hollywood or Broadway musical; and more.

"The Five Songs for Soprano … are full of wit and careful word-setting—apt vehicles for [Joan] Morris's rich singing. Included, too, is the more dramatic Suite for Viola and Piano (1948) played deftly by pianist Sanford Margolis and violist Mahoko Eguchi. McKay was a maverick, but this record suggests that the mavericks live on."—Star-Tribune

"Morris' appearance in the excerpts from Five Songs for Soprano (1964) and 1969's Every Flower that Ever Grew is glorious. Her sure, strong tone and exemplary enunciation create a model for young singers to follow."—ClassicsToday
