MY THOUGHTS:
I love all kinds of music and that is why I chose to review this CD from Harry Connick, Jr. I needed something new in my collection. This CD I am told is a lot less jazzy and more easy listening than his other CDs. Yes, maybe to some, these songs are reminiscent to elevator tunes, but one could also point out that is why these are timeless and everyone knows them...or should! Harry's jazzy crooning style is just what I needed. His smooth voice reminds me a little of a young Frank Sinatra. My mother's love of old classic musicals and music has given me a taste of the classics. All of the songs that Harry sings are ones that I recognize and can sing along to. If you haven't been introduced to Harry go take a listen HERE. You can also preview the music on Your Songs HERE.
