Harry Connick Jr. Your Songs Review And Giveaway

Something different is in the air, just listen – Harry Connick Jr’s new CD Your Songs is more easy listening and a lot less jazzy. His voice is still as beautiful as ever, but don’t expect any ragtime. Instead you’ll hear classics like “Some Enchanted Evening”. Yet, when you want some nice relaxing music in the background for a romantic night perhaps, this fits the bill.

Produced by Clive Davis, Your Songs has a full orchestra and includes featured guests Branford Marsalis, Wynton Marsalis and Bryan Sutton. Harry wrote every orchestration himself also.

Harry Connick Jr Your Songs The CD contains 14 tracks that some young people may not know by name, but are most likely familiar with. After hearing Harry Connick Jr’s version, they will probably become favorites:

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)

My Review: I was surprised when I first heard this CD. In fact, shocked. This is not the Harry Connick Jr. that I’ve come to know and love, but after a few listens, his voice won me over. I’m not pleased with all of the tracks, especially “Your Song”, but the others have grown on me. I like the real classics like “All The Way” and “Who Can I Turn To?” where I can feel that there’s a connection between Harry and the songs. I like to listen to it as background music, not something that I can sit back and put my full attention on.
