The composer served as guest composer and lecturer at many prestigious American colleges and universities, including Rutgers University, Williams College, the University of South Carolina and Eastman.

Review:
"...But the atonal and jazz elements in Bazelon's music are part of the urban landscape that his work reflects. They are the surface features of the music and sometimes even the topic of the music, and they permeate his work in much the same way that the hymns and tunes of New England permeate the work of Charles Ives. The overall effect of this music is powerful, and while it is not always easy to listen to, it is very direct. Of the six works included in this collection, Memories of a Winter Childhood is particularly striking....This is the second disc of the music of Bazelon from Albany (I haven't heard the first). But I can't imagine any single CD showing the different sides of this imaginative, original composer better than this intelligently assembled collection." (Fanfare)
