Harry Connick Jr. is a complete musician, and for this reason everything he does deserves at least one listen. "25" contains numerous examples of his varied abilities, from the amazing piano playing on "Stardust" to the beautiful, expressive singing in the ballads. Connick does more than justice to "This Time the Dream's On Me", while the uptempo choices like "On the Atchison..." "I'm an Old Cowhand" and "Lazybones" display wit and charm along with formidable musicianship. One reason why Connick is such an appealing performer is that he respects the original melodic line of a song, even as he makes it his own. The beautiful tune in "Tangerine" is never obscured, nor is that of "On the Street Where You Live". Only "Didn't He Ramble" disappoints as lesser piece of writing. The backup musicians, especially Johnny Adams, all approach Connick's league. A great place to start exploring Mr...
Great voice and good piano work. Stands up to repeated listenings. Straightforward production values, which is good. Cool acoustic bass.
When I first listened to the album I was put off a bit, cuz' I missed his raucous big band sound. But then the realization hit me that he's his best this way, just him and his piano. It's raw and honest, with nothing to hide. He's truly a master at what he does.
