I loooooooooooooove it
Favorite HCJ Album YET!
This album is the reason I LOVE HCJ! The New Orleans Jazz/Swing feeling ---- music that moves your soul -- not like hip/hop or R&B today. He's a phenomenal artist. Everyone needs this album in their repertoire!
This album is one of my all-time favorites. Harry Connick, Jr. is great because he has REAL talent, unlike artists whose voices are manufactured by computers.
HARRY - our NOLA home town treasure!!
Surprisingly good tunes here as most of the songs aren't on my list of covers or originals, but Harry always brings a little something extra wonderful to his music.
As for the dude who thinks our Harry is just out to make some money, he was the one who went into New Orleans and debunked the reports that 'help couldn't get in'. He went and helped and never stops helping PLUS he's a fantastic musician.
The Oh, My NOLA is a really touching song and the old standards are delivered with some new pep! There are so many songs I'd like to see him cover, but when he takes songs I don't really care about and make them appealing, it is the sign of a very talented musician.
This was my first purchase from iTunes. The experience was great and the album was even better! I live in NOLA, so one may say I am a bit bias. :) But, Harry Connick Jr. is a great singer and not a bad actor (from P.S. I Love You)!
Oh, My Nola
Cute, Cute Cute!
Harry is back to the good old days! I love the variety.
I never could stand Harry Connick Jr., but this just cuts the cake. The big band plays as if their watered down parts in a manner that swings so little and bores so well that I really would consider buying this album to help myself have asleep. I FAR prefer Duke Ellington, but as far as big band is concerened, I'm not a very big fan of it anyways. The Keith Jarrett Trio, The Herbie Hancock Trio, Chick Corea and Gary Burton, and Miles Davis' second great quintet is where the real music is at, and I'm sure that if you weigh Harry Connick Jr against them, he will lose time and time again.
Harry is fantastic...I saw him perform on television and then saw him in concert, he was awesome...
Now I have to buy the whole album. I really love the New Orleans jazz...
Harry is Awesome
If you do not know jazz please do not bother to comment. Harry is an amazing musician and I applaude his musicianship and his love for his hometown! Buy this and you will not be sorry!
Might possibly be the best Harry cd yet!!! If you don't have it, get it. I saw him in concert a few days ago, and man what a show!!!! Way to go, Harry. This is why we love you!!!!!
