Album Review

Pairing up the 2006 Broadway cast album of The Pajama Game and a newly recorded studio version of the 2001 musical Thou Shalt Not, Harry on Broadway, Act 1 showcases singer/pianist/composer Harry Connick, Jr.'s two forays onto the Great White Way. While Connick did not originally perform in Thou Shalt Not, here he takes on the lead in his adaptation of Émile Zola's novel Thérèse Raquin. A dark romance of adultery and murder, Thou Shalt Not received a mixed critical and public response after it opened, and the tragic events of 9/11 only compounded the problems. Nonetheless, despite a low-key and often melancholy sameness to these songs, Connick's warm vocals and superb piano playing combined with appearances by saxophonist Branford Marsalis makes this version — there is also 2002's Thou Shalt Not [Original Broadway Cast] — a winning jazz album. Similarly, Connick's star turn as the lead in Richard Adler and Jerry Ross' classic '50s musical The Pajama Game is a case of brilliant casting and superb talent meeting first-class material. Connick, with his supple vocals and movie star looks, was born to play these kinds of roles, and in some ways he even bests original star John Raitt as Connick is a true jazz vocalist who can imbue these songs with Sinatra-esque flair.

Customer Reviews

Why is there no seperate Pajama Game album?

I was looking for the album for the Pajama Game revival and couldn't find it anywhere because it's not on iTunes. Instead, it's under Harry Connick, Jr. Why? The rest of the cast deserves a little credit too, ya know! Nevertheless, the songs are superb.

THANK YOU!!!

I saw a performance of the Pajama Game by a high school theatre group this summer and loved it, but I haven't been able to find an album that captures the same spirit that they did. Harry Connick Jr.'s version breathes new life into this music. Buy it! You'll be glad you did.

Harry on Broadway, Act I

I´m looking for a piece for an ice skating program and I loved the Overture of this album (the little 30 secs). Somebody knows if it has vocals? I really want to know, because I just need the instrumentals.

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,...
