NPR: MORNING EDITION

Bill Murray has come a long way since his early days as Nick the Lounge Singer on Saturday Night Live. He made screwball comedies like Caddy Shack and Stripes. Then he made serious films, like Lost in Translation. His latest project is New Worlds, an album where he sings and reads American classics accompanied by a classical trio. It was created with the help of Jan Vogler, a German cellist and Murray's creative partner. According to Vogler, the two met at an airport - specifically, at security. "Bill started making comments on my cello," Vogler says. "I think he was a little surprised that I was trying to carry that huge baggage into the airplane." Murray says he asked "the real question: 'Are you going to be able to fit that thing in the overhead compartment?'"
