By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
"Harry for the Holidays" is more jazz oriented than Harry Connick, Jr's previous holiday album ten years ago, which is fine because it plays to his strengths and makes this album stand out from the competition a bit more. Connick does the arranging, the orchestrations, and conducts the big band, while taking his turn at playing the piano, bass, and drums. Oh, and he sings the songs too. It certainly is nice to see that all the promise he showed when he was a kid that CBS did a feature store on has come true. This one is not going to be to everybody’s tastes, but for those who have such leanings this one is going to be a tasty holiday treat.
In staying true to his jazz roots, Connick actually comes up with some really new arrangements on some Christmas classics, such as "Frosty the Snowman," "Santa Clause Is Coming to Town," "Silver Bells," and even "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." Of all the hats he wears for this 2003 album it is the arranger that really stands out. The end product might not be to your taste, but nobody is going to accuse Harry Connick, Jr. of taking the safe route on a lot of these songs. As a singer the best track on the album is exactly the one you would expect it to be for his crooning vocal style, "I'll Be Home for Christmas" (and the piano solo is pretty good too). Which reminds me, there is one more hat on Harry's head this holiday: he wrote a quartet of these sixteen songs, including "Nothin' New for New Year."

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Album to get you in the festive mood. 23 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the second Christmas album from Harry and it is just as good as the first. Harry has recorded his own versions of popular and well known Christmas songs and also four new songs he has composed himself. They are all good especially The Happy Elf, The Christmas Waltz, I'm Gonna be the First one, I Come with Love and Nothing New for New Year. On Nothing New for new Year Harry duets with Country star George Jones. An animated film inspired by Harry's song The Happy Elf (featured in this album) Has been made.
This album is a classic and I urge you to buy it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time 17 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a stealth classic. If you loved "When My Heart..." You will ultimately come to adore this, but not straight away. This is a far more mature work and the arrangements are challenging to the listener (let alone the trumpets - sheesh! talk about supersonic). What's not to love about Frosty? That'll probably make you smile first time. But by the time you get to the ground-shifting be bop offering of "I Wonder As I Wander", you may be questioning your choice, but stick with it. Once you see where he's coming from you'll be playing this one into February and getting some really weird looks. Mr Connick flits from genre to genre tempting your taste buds with different flavours. I especially dig "Silver Bells": reminiscent of Bernstein and his New Orleans "Santa Claus is Coming To Town"; who'd have thought a field so regularly tilled could still turn up new gems? I'm still coming to terms with "I Come With Love", but that's part of the joy - I've still got some work to do next Christmas:-)

If this is not THE best then it is certainly one of the best Christmas albums ever! Harry's singing and writing combine perfectly at the "most wonderful time of the year"!

I can't speak highly enough of Harry Connick Jr. I think he is the king of Christmas music. He is such a clever musician. He is a Christmas staple for me. 2nd only to baby Jesus himself.... Almost :)
