I have always been a fan of Harry Connick, Jr., so I couldn't wait to listen to this CD. Many of these tunes are already songs that I love. Hearing them sung in Harry's smooth, beautiful voice made them new and fresh. Seriously, this man's voice is like velvet. And, the orchestration is great, too. Harry Connick, Jr. is truly a talented artist. Check out this CD, available now.

Here's some information about Harry Connick, Jr. (from One2One newsletter):

I remember that my parents had a record album by Harry Connick, Sr., and the pic on the album showed him sitting at a piano. Father Harry's talents were definitely passed on to his son!
