Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Harry Connick Jr. has a rare gift for summoning the style of classic 1940s saloon singing, hinting at Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and especially Dick Haymes, without engaging in actual impersonation. What's more uncanny still is his songwriting, an idiomatic command of the standards that often summons some of the rhythmic ease of Gershwin, the tunefulness of Jerome Kern, and the wit of Cole Porter. Both his singing and songwriting talents are evident on this CD, recorded in 1990 when Connick was just 22. Its emphasis is squarely on the subject of love, both on the ballads and some harder swinging tunes, and Connick's voice shines on original songs and the standards "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and Porter's "It's All Right with Me." Connick's voice and piano are ably supported by bassist Ben Wolfe, drummer Shannon Powell, and a string section, while there are some good jazz solos by regular associate Russell Malone on guitar and guest Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano saxophones. --Adam Rains

Product Description

A recent quote about singing and the lack of emotionalism/technique in the Great American Songbook, has brought Harry Connick and his singing back into the forefront.... especially where the great american songbook is concerned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why don't I listen to this one more often?? November 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I, like most Connick fans, "discovered" him through hearing his music on the soundtrack to the Meg Ryan/Billy Crystal movie WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (ASIN B0000026V6). At the tender age of 20, I bought the CD to accompany it and loved it. I had the rare opportunity to judge these time-tested tunes with an unjaundiced ear of naivete: Grandma and Grandpa had some good tunes AFTER all. When his 2nd disc (this one) came out, I hurried to purchase it and was underwhelmed at the time outside of a couple tunes I felt were pretty catchy (Recipe for Love and It's Alright with Me). In all fairness it's difficult for ANY composer to stand alongside the likes of "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" or "It Had to Be You". As time went on, I discovered more of the big band era singers and performers' original versions and adjusted my estimation of the WHMS disc downward a bit (in comparison with folks like Sinatra, Crosby, and Cole...Nat, not Natalie).

But a curious thing happened when I revisited this disc recently: I played it again. And again...and again...and again. Perhaps some of it is the novelty of hearing new "oldies" but quite a few of these tunes are holding up for me, particularly with my more mature ears these days.

HIGHLIGHTS:
"We are in Love" is the confirmed bachelor's surrender: "I do..could it be that's the phrase you thought never would phase you/Well baby, you'd better hold on tight/'Cause I'm the one/who's supposed to kneel down and propose/well alright/I might, I might". "Recipe for Love" follows a similar theme with a novelty approach. ("It doesn't need an oven 'cause it's got a lot of heat/Just add a dash of kisses to make it all complete..") Love is fading in "Drifting" as the song's hero faces facts.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Are In Love-Harry Connick Jr. March 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I am in love with this wonderful album. I have owned this particular work for 7 years, and it is still just as wonderful as the day I received it. Each piece, rather it is slow or upbeat, has a timeless appeal. Harry Connick Jr. has mastered the ability to capture a feeling with words.

Harrys's 'WE Are In Love " c.d. is a great one! I first heard his music when I was at my fiancees apartment and fell in love with the songs Recipe of Love and A Nightengale Sang.... This album will always remind me of the times I was just friends with my fiancee and will always remind me of Winter. It is a magical cd that I own and cherish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Old Harry! April 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think this is my favorite because it was my first HCJ purchase. I played it so much it fell apart. A modern but smooth voice manages to escape those somewhat over-sized and clumsy lips, and still, he remains enchantlingly charming and reachable! And then there's his piano playing, and what he can act too?
I love the songs on this CD, my favorites being A Nightingale Sang In Berkely Square and We Are in Love. His voice and demeanor never fail to cheer me. For anyone who likes standards and jazz, this is a great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Mad about Harry June 20, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The first time I saw or heard Harry was on a television special. I was so taken by his velvet voice and bigband style that I fell instantly in love. I was in highschool, and I suppose I was just like those teenage girls who swooned over Frank Sinatra way back when. I bought the album, after quite a bit of searching, and was blown away. "We are in Love" was my first taste of big band jazz music, and my first taste of Harry. He showed me a new genre of music that I've come to love. Thankyou Harry, when it comes to you.. I AM in love.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harry is back doing what he does best! April 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I've been a Harry Conick fan for some time now. I've enjoyed his voice, wonderful jazz piano styles and the fabulous arrangements. For awhile though I thought he was really moving in the wrong direction. I'm happy to say however, that he is back doing the type of songs he is really great at: some old, some new, but always lyrical and singable. "Recipe For Love" is a great uptempo song, and is a great contrast to the the equally stirring ballads like "Drifting". You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Amazing with a Simple Style February 20, 2003
By WD
Format:Audio CD
This album to me is just amazing. This album followed the success from his album for the motion picture "When Harry Met Sally" which i also suggest purchasing if not already purchased. This album has many of my favorites which im sure youll like. Harry has such a knack for singing his voice is so natural, it brings you to relax and think of some ofthe past singers like dean martin, sammy davis jr, frank sinatra tony bennet, and so on. He just sings from the heart. Spotlight songs on this album include "We are in Love" which has an incredible beat and is very uniquely sung. "A Nightengale sang in Berkley Spuare" is another one with a great tune and just fun to listen to. The whole album is great i give it my highest recommendation. This album surely is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem January 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Harry's breakthrough was the soundtrack to the movie"When Harry Met Sally" but this is the album that established him as a true musician and entertainer. The songs on this album are foot tapping and heart tugging a perfect blend and the jazz and arrangements are outstanding. Harry's singing is often described as "Sinatra-like" but I think he has his own style and tone that was influenced by Sinatra and others from his New Orleans background. Outstanding work and the place to start if you don't have any of his albums.
