Harry Connick ,Jr. "Your Songs" Review

Posted by Felicia Tuesday, October 6, 2009, under | 1 comments
The new Harry Connick, Jr. CD, "Your Songs" is one an album I have been REALLY looking forward to, so when I found out I was selected to review it I was bursting at the seams! I have always loved his voice in the past- so smooth and jazzy along with a great band- I couldn't believe I got to check it out first-hand!

I received it about a week ago and I can't stop listening to it. The album has the great sounds of his big band music and the soft comforting voice that Harry Connick, Jr. offers. This album is truly "comfort" music to me. After a long busy day of babysitting, errands, and housekeeping, this is a great album to wind down with.

There is quite a variety of songs available on the CD, including many favorites that everyone will recognize and a few new ones that I had never heard before.
They really take you back to simpler times, which is a thing I love and makes it so relaxing. All of his music on this cd was arranged,orchestrated and conducted by Harry Connick, Jr. himself, a fact that brings his personality even more into this album and it really comes through in his music. The songs on this CD are classic and I can't help but sing along, I love it!
