Many love Harry - this is a good sound, if you like the "newer" Frank sound

This is Harry Connick,Jr., the New Orleans jazz musician, playing and singing some great old standards in his inimitable way. This is a case of less is more - no big band sound but the cozy intimacy of the true jazz vocal genre in a small combo setting.

Total Pleasure From a Total Musician

"Harry Connick Jr. is a complete musician, and for this reason everything he does deserves at least one listen. "25" contains numerous examples of his varied abilities, from the amazing piano playing on "Stardust" to the beautiful, expressive singing in the ballads. Connick does more than justice to "This Time the Dream's On Me", while the uptempo choices like "On the Atchison..." "I'm an Old Cowhand" and "Lazybones" display wit and charm along with formidable musicianship. One reason why Connick is such an appealing performer is that he respects the original melodic line of a song, even as he makes it his own. The beautiful tune in "Tangerine" is never obscured, nor is that of "On the Street Where You Live". Only "Didn't He Ramble" disappoints as lesser piece of writing. The backup musicians, especially Johnny Adams, all approach Connick's league. A great place to start exploring Mr. Connick."
YET ANOTHER WONDERFUL ALBUM

"In my eyes, you can't say which Harry Connick, Jr., album is the best, because they all display perfection, and something new in every song. Whether it's his soft voice, or his excellent display on the piano, it's all here in his album produced at 25 years of age, by someone who will go down in Jazz history, Mr. Harry Conncik Jr."
