Harry Connick, Jr.'s career has been studded with awards and recognition, including several multi-platinum and gold albums, Grammy and Emmy awards, a starring role in a Tony-winning Broadway musical and much more. A true American icon, there are few artists of Harry's stature, and fewer still with such a comprehensive span of the entire realm of entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the singer, pianist and actor, an album of cover versions of songs requested by his many fans. Like his best-selling Only You of 2004, Your Songs consists of Connick singing familiar songs with a full Jazz big band and string orchestra, and, as with nearly all of Harry's previous albums, he wrote each of the orchestrations himself. He also recruited two of his lifelong friends from New Orleans, Branford and Wynton Marsalis, as well as bluegrass guitar virtuoso Bryan Sutton, for guest appearances. 14 tracks including 'Mona Lisa', 'Smile', 'Just The Way You Are' and more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Musical Botox September 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD
There's a very interesting article from The Globe and Mail online that chronicles this, Harry Connick's first (and hopefully last) collaboration with mega-producer Clive Davis. Connick claims that the album was "the kind of...market-minded disc that [he] thought he'd never do, `not in a million years.'" Connick is quoted as saying that working with Davis at times left him "pissed" and "humiliated," and feeling "What am I doing, auditioning for this dude?" If there's proof positive that an artist of Connick's caliber should trust his own instincts, it's this seriously misguided collection of pop pablum.

The album starts with a fairly standard big-band arrangement of "All the Way," that clearly tells us we're in "When Harry Met Sally" territory. Which is fine, that's a place in which I'm more than happy to live. But what follows is dreadful: a cheesy version of Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are" that turns this simple, Grammy-winning classic into the theme from "Love, American Style." And other tacky renditions of tacky songs follow: A hokey, bluegrass version of Elton John's "Your Song;" Easy Listening takes on Beatles and Burt Bacharach tunes; a lackluster, rinky dink "Can't Help Falling in Love With You" that made me want to sway and hold up a lighter. Wynton Marsalis' trumpet solos only reinforce that's it all very Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

I've always regarded Mr. Connick as an arbiter of good taste and classy jazz, neither of which he displays here. There are thousands of brilliant, moving standards out there, and instead we get...Don McLean's "And I Love Her So?" Really? Disheartening to say the least.

To be fair, not all the tracks misfire. The abum's last three, including "Who Can I Turn To?

5.0 out of 5 stars Yous Songs is great!!! September 28, 2009
By Bup FX
Format:Audio CD
If anyone knows Harry Connick Jr., they know what a great musician he is. This cd shows off those talents and then some. Harry shines through the most creative and thoughtful covers of some of the best and most well known songs of our time. Harry covers Nat King Cole, Sinatra and Billy Joel (among others) and does them all extraordinarily well. This man is a true artist, and Your Songs is true art.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite Harry Connick CD October 22, 2009
By SoHappy
Format:Audio CD
This is a good CD, though not my favorite of his works. It would make nice background music, but didn't capture my attention enough to sit and simply listen for the hour. I liked the song selections as they are classic romantic hits. Harry's voice is strong as usual, though his rendition of several of the tunes didn't do the songs justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey, it's good, it's just not great. September 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Harry's back with a new 14 track album of old favorites requested by fans, "Your Songs". Now, I'm a longtime Harry Connick, Jr. fan. He's probably my favorite singer, yet I can understand the animosity some fans have towards this latest CD of his. Overall though, it's enjoyable. I like it. I don't love it. There's not much to get really excited about. It's good. Some of it is great. Nothing blows you away and some of the songs you know and love are just too directly identified with certain other great singers that you really only want to hear them from those singers. For example, why would you want to hear anyone but Elton John sing "Your Song"? Or how about Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are"? As far as songs go, these are two of the best on this CD, and that's not good since they have certain sounds that are practically only pleasing from the original singers (or Ewan McGregor? Ha) and aren't really the right style, in my opinion, for Harry. I singled out those two in particular because I didn't feel they translated well to Harry's style (Billy's songs even are a tad dated, though I love them anyway coming from him). Harry sings them okay, but... Another that falls into this realm somewhat is "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You"; sorry, too used to Elvis doing that one. And what a hodgepodge of songs this album is. Nevertheless, there are some fine moments. Yes, "Mona Lisa" will forever be associated with the great Nat King Cole, but because the style is so right for Harry, his version is very pleasing and probably the highlight of the disc. "Bésame Mucho" is another delight from Harry, as is "The Way You Look Tonight". Harry's take on "And I Love Her" is quite good, and so are "Close to You", "Smile", and "Some Enchanted Evening".

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! September 28, 2009
By C. Boyd
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those light-the-candles, turn-the-lights-low, fetch-the-wine CDs that you just put in when you want to tune the world out for a little while. Harry does the artists proud with his renditions. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE CD September 28, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have CD! Its great for all ages and its just one of those makes you feel good easy to listen to cd's.
This was my first Harry Connick cd..I don't know why I haven't purchased one of his album's sooner because he's a very talented singer/song writer but I can promise it will NOT be my last and has quickly become one of my favorites! I did think upon reading the song titles that I'd have a certain few favorite songs but once I listened to the album not once or twice but several times now this past week I cannot find just a few favorite songs..I love them all! Its a great album that I plan on giving as a gift for friends and family!
