Harry Connick, Jr. has been my absolute favorite crooner since college days and I was thrilled to have a chance to review his newest CD “Your Songs“.
Let me preface this by saying I typically do not listen to what I’d refer to as “secular” music, but as I mentioned, I do have a love for Harry and his style of music, so this was an opportunity I wasn’t ready to pass up.
Harry’s voice is as smooth as ever, and the selection of songs he’s added to this album are simply fantastic — the classics we all know and love, backed by a full jazz band and orchestra.
Check out the track list(Originally performed by):
And I Love You So (Don McLean)
Now…would I buy this album? A definitive and resounding “yes”. Should you buy it? Only if you have a deep and abiding love for great jazz music that would be a perfect accompaniment to any holiday party this season (and if you don’t have it – please for the love of all things Christmas – buy his Christmas album!).
Want to know more about Harry? Check out his website and facebook fan pages! Want to see the making of the video and some exclusive behind-the-scenes footage? Check out the video.[Disclosure: Product provided for review.]

Be still my heart. I love and adore HCJ… mostly thanks to him as Justin Matese, and the Christmas album I grew up listening to. Now I shall buy this, yes I shall. 😀
