Not one of his best c.d.

Like his personal appearances on TV, his albums seem to me to be either a hit or miss. This is one of his misses.

This is one of Harry Connick, Jr.'s original CDs, full of funk, rock and his signature Dixieland jazz. There are times when his New Orleans roots come to the fore while at other times, he's just another rocker. The range of the album is impressive and fun. Great CD!

CD Reviews

One of my very favorite CD's

"This is a CD I just can't live without. I've owned this album for the better part of the last decade and it has never ceased to sound fresh, funky, and fun. This is not big band Connick. This is well-done 70's funk-influenced rock-tinged music."
Ditching the big band for the big beat

"This is probably the closest Connick's ever been to a "mainstream" pop album. But that's only in the most liberal sense of the word "mainstream". This album's hard to fit into a convenient box stylistically.

On some tracks bongos give it a sort of retro 60s hipster vibe ("Trouble"), others aspire to add to the Mardi Gras canon ("Here Comes the Big Parade"), HEADHUNTERS-era Herbie Hancock rears its head ("Joe Slam and the Spaceship"), there's even a suggestion of 80s new wave outfit The Art of Noise ("Follow the Music"). In other words, if you're a big fan of his albums WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, WE ARE IN LOVE, or RED LIGHT, BLUE LIGHT, you may find yourself scratching your head. If there's one thread that ties most of this together, it's R&B. This might be the album that showcases Connick's New Orleans roots more than any other.

"Here Comes the Big Parade" is readymade for the second line, a flat-out Nawlins brass band march tune. "Trouble" is spare in the extreme with a skeletal piano line from Harry's fingers and Michael Ward's conga as Connick tells his paramour ("Dawlin' I got you/And baby, you're trouble...Used to not need nothin'/Now trouble is all I need") "(I Could Only) Whisper Your Name" is another winner as Connick proclaims love to be all he needs in the face of proclamations of peace or eternal paradise to come. "Booker" is Harry's do-it-yourself cut: He plays piano, bass, guitar, drums and tambourine on the tale of a man who "died of a broken heart".

"Follow the Music" and "Follow the Music Further" are mostly just a by-the-numbers groove with a processed vocal recitation from frequent Connick collaborator Ramsey MacLean. "She..Blessed be the One" is nothing more than throwaway filler.

This is very much a "vibe" album. Chances are if you like ANY of it, you'll like it all. Try the samples for the highlight songs...if you don't like 'em don't give up on Connick altogether . It probably means this "side" of him ain't for you. If you're in that category, try RED LIGHT, BLUE LIGHT or WE ARE IN LOVE."
