Harry Connick, Jr. – “Your Songs” & And A Giveaway!

I feel I should preface my review of Harry Connick, Jr.’s latest release “Your Songs” by stating that I am a HUGE fan of Harry’s. I absolutely love this guy. The first time I saw “When Harry Met Sally” I bought the soundtrack that day. From that point I listened to whatever music he had created before his big break; “Eleven”, “Harry Connick, Jr.” and “20”. That’s why, I am SO sad to say, his latest CD has me shaking my head.

Like I said, I’m a huge fan. I’ve seen him perform in concert (fantastic!) and I think he’s a good actor. (His perfomance in “Hope Floats” melts my butter). He’s smooth, cool, and “Rat-Packy Hip”. But, as far as I’m concerned, his coolness still cannot sell me on his version of The Carpenter’s song “Close To You”.

There are 14 tracks on “Your Songs” and some will make it into my musical rotation. “All The Way”, “The Way You Look Tonight”, “Smile” these have a great big-band vibe. Some songs walk that tender line between genuine coolness and sitting-in-the-dentist-chair muzak. Unfortunately, many tunes on “Your Songs” put me in the dentist’s chair. *sigh*

I’m offering my honest opinion of my dear Harry’s latest release. Am I happy to be this honest? Not really. However, I am going to look at “Your Songs” as a glass half full scenario. Harry Connick, Jr. has given us some sweet, jazzy tunes that make me smile.
