Harry Connick, Jr.'s vocals perfectly fit the moods throughout the 1989 Billy Crystal film When Harry Met Sally. This soundtrack album (which stands apart from the movie) was a big hit and a major step forward for the young pianist-vocalist, although it appears to have been the high point of his career. Connick warmly sings such numbers as "It Had to Be You," "Our Love Is Here to Stay," "But Not for Me," and "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," while usually accompanied by bassist Benjamin Wolfe, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, and a big band. Frank Wess' warm tenor makes a brief appearance on "Our Love Is Here to Stay." In addition, there are a few melodic instrumentals, including some solo Connick piano on "Winter Wonderland" and "Autumn in New York." Highly recommended.
NOT A SOUNDTRACK - Movie Music Sung by Harry Connick Jr
This is mislabeled on iTunes as a soundtrack. It is music from the movie as sung by Harry Connick Jr, who played and sang some of the actual film songs. I enjoy this album and own it but the iconic song of the film for me is "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" sung by Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. I enjoy Harry's version but I LOVE Ella and Louis. Below are the songs from the film, with credits, courtesy of Wikipedia.The actual soundtrack will have to bought one single at a time. "It Had to Be You" (Isham Jones, Gus Kahn) – Frank Sinatra "Our Love is Here to Stay" (George Gershwin, Ira Gershwin) – Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald "Don't Pull Your Love" (Brian Potter, Dennis Lambert) – Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds "Ramblin' Man" (Dickey Betts) – Allman Brothers Band "Right Time Of The Night" (Peter McCann) – Jennifer Warnes "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off" (G. Gershwin, I. Gershwin) – Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald "Where Or When" (Lorenz Hart, Richard Rodgers) – Ella Fitzgerald "Lady's Lunch" (Marc Shaiman) "The Tables Have Turned" (Laura Kenyon, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman) "But Not For Me" (G. Gershwin, I. Gershwin) – Harry Connick Jr. "Plane Cue and La Marsellaise" (Max Steiner) (from Casablanca (1942)) "La Marsellaise" (Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle) "Autumn In New York" (Vernon Duke) – Harry Connick, Jr. Trio "Winter Wonderland" (Felix Bernard, Dick Smith) – Ray Charles "I Could Write A Book" (Hart, Rodgers) – Harry Connick Jr. "The Surrey With the Fringe On Top" (Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II) - Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan "Say It Isn't So" (Irving Berlin) "String Quartet No. 7 in E-flat major" (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart) "Stompin' at the Savoy" (Benny Goodman, Chick Webb, Edgar Sampson, Andy Razaf) – Harry Connick, Jr. Trio "Don't Be That Way" (Sampson, Goodman, Mitchell Parish) "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" (Ralph Blane, Hugh Martin) – Bing Crosby "Call Me" (Tony Hatch) - Billy Crystal "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" (Duke Ellington, Bob Russell) – Harry Connick Jr. "Isn't It Romantic" (Hart, Rodgers) "Auld Lang Syne" (Robert Burns) – Louis Armstrong
The one that started it all...
This will become your favorite album. The kind you can just press play and let it go on ... and on. This soundtrack put Harry on the national radar- his vocals shine on these classics. If you only have one HCJr album, this is the one,
Wish it had the other artists
As much as I enjoy Harry Connick, Jr., I am disappointed that this album doesn't feature the songs being performed by the artists used in the film (Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, for example). I love those performances, and I think the soundtrack would have benefited from them (not to mention it would be more representive of the movie).
