Harry Connick, Jr. is a personal favorite {insert dreamy sigh…}. In March of 2007 I posted about getting concert tickets to see him in Atlanta at The Fox. We own seven of his CDs, plus the Only You concert DVD. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Harry on the stereo.

Harry’s newest CD, Your Songs, features classics by some of the greatest musicians of all time, complete with  full jazz band and string orchestra. In a word, this album is smooth. And sophisticated. Perfect background music for a dinner party or a quiet evening.

In typical Harry fashion, he wrote the orchestrations himself. Your Songs features guest appearances by enormously talented fellow New Orleans entertainers Branford and Wynton Marsalis.

Album Tracklisting:

All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)
Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis Presley)
And I Love Her (The Beatles)
(They Long To Be) Close To You (The Carpenters)
Besame Mucho
The Way You Look Tonight
First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack)
Your Song (Elton John)
Some Enchanted Evening
And I Love You So (Don McLean)
Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)
Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)

If I had Harry’s ear, I would put in a request: after such a polished collection, I’d love to hear some fresh and funky Harry in the next album, à la “(I Could Only) Whisper Your Name,” or “We are in Love.”
