When Harry Met Sally... [Music from the Motion Picture] Harry Connick Jr. Primary Artist
Shop on Barnes & Noble


It took a soundtrack project to make the career of singer/pianist Harry Connick Jr. The identity problems that had plagued his earlier recordings -- is he primarily a pianist who sometimes sings or vice versa? -- were finally ironed out on a movie tie-in that placed Connick's retro-smoothie singing front and center. The handful of piano features on this recording, including Autumn in New York and Winter Wonderland, were presented as pleasant diversions from the main event. Connick's easy-on-the-ears versions of such chestnuts as Our Love Is Here to Stay, It Had to Be You, and Let's Call the Whole Thing Off displayed his careful study of such important vocal stylists as {|Frank Sinatra|} and {|Bobby Darin|}. As the film When Harry Met Sally itself proved, romance never goes out of style, and with Connick, a whole new generation looking for a vocal icon to sing sweet nothings finally had a high-style crooner to call their very own.
