Harry Connick Jr {CD REVIEW}

Singer, actor, composer, pianist, philanthropist, husband, father – Harry Connick, Jr. is all those things wrapped up in one package. Harry's been indulging his musical passion since the age of 3, and played publicly for the first time at the age of 6! His career has been studded with awards and recognition, including several multi-platinum and gold albums, 25 million albums sold worldwide, Grammy, Tony and Emmy Awards; Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, and so much more.

Thanks to One 2 One Network we received his new album entitled Your Songs to review. On this great CD, Harry performs classic songs by some of the greatest musicians of all time, with a full jazz big band and string orchestra!
