Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Plucked from the piano bars of New Orleans, Harry Connick Jr. was an unlikely choice to pen the soundtrack for a major Hollywood release. But everyone concerned hit the jackpot. As with the best of Connick's music, When Harry Met Sally resonates with a whimsical yet sophisticated and urbane energy. That smooth, breathy tenor, combined with some inventive arrangements, brought color and setting to the film, playing a plum supporting role for Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Beyond the film, this collection of reworked standards stands on its own quite well. A lustrous vocal line bookends the hopping instrumental swing in the middle of "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," playing that song's central melancholy up with a Nelson Riddle-esque big-band sweep. Connick's take on "Love Is Here to Stay" puts a gentle cha-cha behind the familiar verses, slowly working in a lazily wandering tenor sax. By the time the record fades out in a hushed, tender rendition of "Where or When," Connick has managed to thoroughly charm us, whether we'd seen the movie or not. --Matthew Cooke

1.0 out of 5 stars The songs in the movie and their whereabout June 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Music from the motion picture", what a misleading title. If you do not pay particular attention to this, you might think that the songs in this CD are those heard in the movie. In fact, none of them is, including those songs sung by Harry Connick, Jr., his versions here are different from those in the movie.
The followings are the songs featured in the movie and their origin:
1. Our love is here to stay - Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong
2. Let's call the whole thing off - Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong (the above two comes from the Verve CD "Ella & Louis Again")
3. Don't pull your love - Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds (From the MCA CD "Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds - Greatest Hits)
4. Rambling man - Allman Brothers (From the Polygram CD "A Decade of Hits 1969-1979)
5. Right time of the night - Jennifer Warnes (From the Arista CD "The best of Jennifer Warnes)
6. Where or when - Ella Fitzgerald (From the Verve CD (1) "Sings the Rodgers and Hart Song Book [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]" (2) "The very best of Rodgers and Hart Song Book" released in 2007. (Updated on 29 Feb 2008)
7. Winter Wonderland - Ray Charles (From the CBS CD "The spirit of Christmas")
8. Have yourself a Merry little Christmas - Bing Crosby (From the Capitol CD " Bing Crosby's Christmas Classics [ORIGINAL RECORDING REISSUED] [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED])
9. It had to be you - Frank Sinatra (From WEA International CD "Romance"[IMPORT] and Rhino/Wea UK CD "A Fine Romance - The Love Songs of Frank Sinatra [Import])

Two songs were sung by Billy Crystal in the movie:
1. The Surrey with the fringe on top (with Meg Ryan when singing thru the Karaoke machine)(originally a song featured in "Oklahoma!

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay, so it's not THE soundtrack....but it's good November 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Fans of Rob Reiner's 1989 romantic comedy "When Harry Met Sally..." will tell you that this Harry Connick, Jr. album that's sold in the Movie Soundtrack section of most music emporiums (including online stores such as this) is not, in fact, from the original motion picture soundtrack. Instead, Columbia Records released this non-soundtrack as When Harry Met Sally...Music From the Motion Picture. Yes, the songs played and sung here by Connick were heard in the movie...but most of them were performed by other artists.
This doesn't mean the album is bad; it's not. It just isn't an "original soundtrack album."
That having been said, this 10-track set is an enjoyable collection of romantic standards, some of them now over six decades old yet sounding timeless. Some of them are cheerful and peppy ("It Had To Be You," which is heard in two versions here), some are riffs on loneliness and separation ("But Not For Me" and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore"),others still are odes to romance ("I Could Write a Book" and the gently reflective "Where or When"). There is even a little bit of the holiday spirit added in for good measure (a solo piano rendition of "Winter Wonderland").
Connick pulls double duty as vocalist and piano player in most of the tracks (with the exception of "But Not For Me," with Marc Shaiman doing the honors at the piano), ably reflecting each song's emotional context with his old-fashioned stylings and New Orleans accent. Listen carefully to the World War II-era "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and there's a sense of longing there for an absent spouse or lover.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware! It's not really the movie soundtrack! February 11, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was very disappointed to receive this CD only to find out that the movie's original artists were replaced with Harry Connick Jr.'s interpretations of their music. Although I like Connick's music, it was the soundtrack I was after. Be a better shopper than I was, and be sure you're getting what you want.

3.0 out of 5 stars How good this is depends on what you're looking for November 3, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking at this because you want the actual songs played in the movie WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, this ain't it. These are songs that were heard in the movie in renditions by New Orleans jazzer Harry Connick, Jr. (who was quite literally a 'young lion' at the time of this recording..just 21) rather than the cuts from Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles, Bing Crosby, and Frank Sinatra that were in the flick. [Connick DID sing "Don't get around much anymore" in the movie along with a medley of "It had to be you/Let's call the whole thing off/But not for me" (over the ending credits) but those are different versions than the ones heard here.] Connick's band DID provide much of the score with instrumental renderings of "Autumn in New York","Isn't it romantic?", "I could write a book", "The tables have turned". "Stomping at the Savoy", "But not for me", "Say it isn't so" and "Don't be that way".

So if you are looking for an actual soundtrack to WHMS, sorry to tell you it doesn't exist. You'll need to buy several CDs and burn your own. If however you're open to hearing more of that voice from the movie, read on.

Connick could be one of the last of the crooners, utilizing creamy smooth vocals, however he keeps the delivery diverse thanks to his jazz chops. He's not afraid to do new things with arrangements of hoary old standards (like his take on "Winter Wonderland" that turns the familiar carol into Naw'lins boogie-woogie or making big band showcase "Stompin' at the Savoy" into a trio number).

Those who are looking for "big band" might find this recording disappointing: only "It Had to Be You", "But Not for Me", and "I Could Write a Book" actually fit THAT mold.
