Harry Connick Jr. is a man of many talents. He is an actor, a singer and a song writer. His talents have been well known for many years, and a staple especially during the Holiday season. Many of his Christmas songs are played in our house.
Harry Connick Jr. just released his latest album, Your Songs on September 22nd. This is a collection of all-time classic songs originally sung by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, The Carpenters and Elton John to name a few. These are songs we are all familiar with, “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You”, “Smile” and “The Way You Look Tonight” to give you sample.
Harry Connick Jr. is promoting his new album in the coming weeks, starting with Imus in the Morning tomorrow morning, and David Letterman in the evening. After that he is on the Today Show on Thursday and next week Rachel Ray.
I was given the chance to hear Harry Connick Jr’s. new album, Your Songs, and have mixed feelings about it. I love the full orchestra and/or jazz band, but miss Harry Connick Jr. playing the piano. I missed that intimate feel from some of his previous work.
The songs chosen are wonderful, and very much within his range. I love that he did a few not as well known songs, it gave the album a bit of mystery. However, I do wish he had some original music on this album, which is what I have been waiting for.
All in all, this is a good album, with the classic Harry Connick sound. There is something about his voice that always calls you back.
Thanks to One2One Marketing for this great review opportunity.
