Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With a career that's cast him as New Orleans jazz revivalist, crooner, Actor, and Broadway composer it's enough to make one ask: Who's the real Harry Connick, Jr.? Indeed, this warm foray into neo-bop, small ensemble instrumental jazz may only complicate the question. If nothing else, its genesis alone is compelling tribute to Connick's restless creativity and seeming resistance to pigeon-holing. All the songs here were written for (though not all used in) Thou Shalt Not, the musician's ambitious 2001 Broadway adaptation of Emile Zola's Therese Raquin that scored him a Tony nomination, if not stellar box office success. This low-key recasting only underscores the material's utilitarian strengths and gives Connick a chance to display chops as polished as they are playfully reverent to their inspirations. "Dumb Luck," "My Little World," and "What a Waste" recall the angular adventures of Monk, while the lyricism of Ned Goold's sax on "Can't We Tell" and "How About Tonight" points toward the best of Brubeck/Desmond. Melancholy and low-key as it may be, it's an album that gently underscores the jazz piano stylist corner of his resume. And if this is the fruit of Connick's Broadway failure, we can only hope he stumbles so gracefully in the future. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars A creative jazz set, fianlly Connick is stretching out... November 23, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is not a Connick vocal album, this is a straight ahead jazz session, where connick finally cuts loose and shows the jazz world what he is capable of(he hasn't showed this much promise as a jazzman since 1997's To see You). Connick no longer sounds just like a Thelonious monk. Connick stretches out on these originals, it would have been mice for him to include astandard or two but this cd wil lshow there is more to Connick as a jazz improvisor than one might think. I hope he'll do another big band vocal album next m but with standards(like Come By Me).

5.0 out of 5 stars It freakin' swings October 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
First off, Ned Goold sounds like Rouse. Secondly, Harry Connick Jr., while best know for his singing, is a monster on the piano player, as evidenced on this album. This album not only showcases Connick's excellent compistion skills, it also presents a quartet with a great group concept. I think of Monks quartet everytime I hear it. It belongs on the shelf of anyone that has the ability to actually hear jazz. Branford Marsalis should be commended for releasing this album that major labels most liekly wouldn't touch because it is not accessible to the masses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz Fan August 15, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Great on CD - better live, this is Harry leading a fine jazz quartet playing serious jazz music. Nice to hear Harry branch out in this way, and looking forward to more of the same. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Does It Again July 15, 2003
By Derrick
Format:Audio CD
This album takes you back to a martini bar scene in a classic movie. Harry shows his versatility again in this album, as he opens the door to even more new things. The only downside is that you wont get to hear his great voice, as it is instrumental.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Pianist Delivers Masterfully. March 8, 2007
Format:Audio CD
When one thinks of Harry Connick Jr. one thinks of his wonderful voice and charisma. What people don't realize is that he is also an accomplished and underrated pianist. In this album, Connick and his quartet deliver soothing tracks that simply remind you of the great quartets and quintets of yesteryear (i.e. Miles Davis and company). If one would listen to this album blindly, most mainstream fans wouldn't know that it was Connick tickling the ivory. But yet again, Connick proves that his talents extend far beyond his singing voice.

Kudos!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great record February 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I got introduced to Harry Connick Jr through his take on Billy Goat stomp on Marsalis' Mr. Jelly Lord album. That was just about the wildest off-beat piano playing I'd ever heard and I started looking for more in this vain. Turned out that was easier said than done, as Connick appeared to be active more in other creative areas. I did pick up Come By Me somewhere down the line, which I liked a lot, but I kept hoping for some more piano-based recordings. So when he finally released Other Hours (and when I finally found it on the web), I took a chance and ordered it. The result: I couldn't be happier! This is exactly the kind of piano jazz I like. It's clearly based on recognizable 'songs' (it is jazz of course, but it's not THAT far out), which are melodic and fun. The sound recording is very good, with for example the lower piano register in What a Waste sounding crisp and edgy. Love that sound. Actually he starts out the album with exactly the kind of time-warped playing I was looking for. And that riff he returns to in the final measures is fantastic. Great groove. As you can see, I like the album! I won't go over all songs, but I really can't find much fault with it. Special mention goes to Take Advantage, my favorite track on the album, which combines that airy, relaxed vibe with a very colorful yet simple melody. I love his various Basie-like improvisations over that theme! That moment at 3:23 where he goes into the final descending phrase is like seeing a cartoon character falling down the stairs...if that makes any sense. Great stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jazz Record December 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is a great Jazz record that is reminiscent of all the classics truly. It has a bit of Monk, but especially plenty of Brubeck / Desmond. The band is tight as hell, the phrasing is beautiful, moreover, the record is edgy. It wants to take you somewhere, dark but with a purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite. May 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
My recent purchase of Harry's 'Chanson du Vieux Carre' and its painfully talented performances reminded me that I better make sure I didn't miss any other discs from Mr. Connick. After reading the reviews here, I picked up 'Other Hours' right away. (I already knew that Mrmaxxx, reviewer below, doesn't know what he is talking about.) Wow. I had overlooked a genius album.

The album art, a piece by Harry Connick Jr.'s mother, Anita, accurately depicts the overall feel of the album. It is a feeling of slight tragedy/melancholy but with some confidence and hope.

The music is dry. There is little flash here. But I do believe this is Harry's finest songwriting effort to date. That is not to say that performances are uninspired. The music successfully demonstrates both chops (oh yes) and a musical story. It's a feel piece, for sure. And it swings hard for a quartet.

Lofty's Roach Souffle, a Connick Trio album from the '90's has a much more lighthearted feeling. Be aware that Other Hours is much more in the vein of West Coast Cool.

You will get your money's worth out of this one. I've heard it a half dozen times and am still hearing it like it's new. Pop it in, kick back, sip whatever you enjoy sippin', and relish it.
