Editors’ Notes

Connick arranged these selections himself, so even classic gems like the Beatles’ “And I Love Her” as well as the Elvis Presley hit “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” sound like the kinds of ‘40s cocktail jazz numbers covered by various members of the Rat Pack during the early ‘60s — though the trumpet solo at the end of the latter sounds more like Chuck Mangione than Pulitzer Prize winner Wynton Marsalis, who actually recorded it (his brother Branford also contributes some saxual healing on the album). Connick’s father Harry Connick, Sr. (former district attorney of the Parish of Orleans) suggested the Spanish sung “Bésame Mucho.” Even Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are” hardly resembles the theme song for TV sitcom Bosom Buddies, though it treads dangerously close to Barry Manilow territory. A sunny rendition of Burt Bacharach’s “(They Long to Be) Close to You” is a true standout.

Customer Reviews

Your Songs, sadly not my cup of tea

What a dissapointment! Harry Connick Jr, is one of the most talented, vocalists, pianists, arrangers and composers around today. He has always inspired me with his compositions and arrangements of "the standards". After listening to this album this morning, I can't help but feel he is trying to pay for a new reovations on his house or trying to get a new audience fromhis flm career! Don't get me wrong the album is of its usual excellent production quality, but the song choices, arrangemnts and performances sound so "old school" and boring for today's genre; so commercial. I kept on expecting Kenny G to do a saxophone solo! Sadly, this is not nearly in the same standard of his other albums, but if you like simple, non-challenging muzak, buy it. I was hoping for more, especially from H C Jr, the guy who's arrangemnt of Danny Boy is one of the most beautiful in the world.

Nice take on some old favourites

With very few exceptions, the career of Harry Connick, Jr., can be divided in half — his first two albums encompassed straight-ahead New Orleans jazz and stride piano while his later career (which paralleled his rising celebrity status) alternated between more contemporary New Orleans music and pop vocals with a debt to Frank Sinatra. Born in New Orleans on September 11, 1967, Connick grew up the son of two lawyers who owned a record store. After beginning on keyboards at the age of three,...
