Amazon.co.uk Review

One of the classiest comedies of the 1980s, Rob Reiner's When Harry Met Sally (1989) stars Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan as good friends who struggle to keep their relationship from becoming romantic. Rather than take the easy route of licensing classic performances of the Great American Songbook, director Reiner enlisted a young, then-obscure Harry Connick Jr. to offer his own readings of these 1930s and 1940s staples. Though Connick plays it fairly straight, he injects his interpretations with stylistic flair and formidable technical facility ("Stompin' At The Savoy"). The big-band charts of Marc Shaiman fuel tracks such as "It Had To Be You" and "I Could Write A Book," while Connick switches to a more poignant mode in takes of "Autumn In New York" and "Where Or When." In other moments his joyful vocals counterpoint the young couple's witty battle by presenting love as something simple and uncomplicated ("Our Love Is Here To Stay"). Though Crystal and Ryan allow true love to wear them down at the end, Connick makes sure the listener stays one step ahead of them along the way. An inspired performance of exemplary material. --Kevin Mulhall

Format: Audio CD
Fans of Rob Reiner's 1989 romantic comedy "When Harry Met Sally..." will tell you that this Harry Connick, Jr. album that's sold in the Movie Soundtrack section of most music emporiums (including online stores such as this) is not, in fact, from the original motion picture soundtrack. Instead, Columbia Records released this non-soundtrack as When Harry Met Sally...Music From the Motion Picture. Yes, the songs played and sung here by Connick were heard in the movie...but most of them were performed by other artists.
This doesn't mean the album is bad; it's not. It just isn't an "original soundtrack album."
That having been said, this 10-track set is an enjoyable collection of romantic standards, some of them now over six decades old yet sounding timeless. Some of them are cheerful and peppy ("It Had To Be You," which is heard in two versions here), some are riffs on loneliness and separation ("But Not For Me" and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore"),others still are odes to romance ("I Could Write a Book" and the gently reflective "Where or When"). There is even a little bit of the holiday spirit added in for good measure (a solo piano rendition of "Winter Wonderland").
Connick pulls double duty as vocalist and piano player in most of the tracks (with the exception of "But Not For Me," with Marc Shaiman doing the honors at the piano), ably reflecting each song's emotional context with his old-fashioned stylings and New Orleans accent. Listen carefully to the World War II-era "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and there's a sense of longing there for an absent spouse or lover. In his rendition of "Where or When," Connick conveys the feeling of awe everyone feels when he or she has fallen in love with someone, yet can't figure out "where or when" the transition occurred.

A brilliant selection of jazz ballads sung with breathtaking clarity by Harry Connick Jr, who almost rivals the young Farnk Sinatra in his ability to project a song.
I say 'almost' because Connick lacks Sinatra's absolutely precise enunciation and loses a few letters in his singing.
That aside, it's a stirring performance that managed to get my 75yr old mother enthused and making the comparison to her idol (Frank Sinatra).
At this price, the CD is pure value. Great background music for a dinner party or those times that you enjoy lying back in a warm bath and relaxing.

Harry - you are the MAN! This recording of 30's and 40's standard jazz ballads is just sooooo cool. The sublime orchestrations from 'It Had To Be You' right throught to the minimal scoring of 'It Had To You' still sends shivers down my spine every time the CD goes in the tray. Alright, it's only 45 minutes long, and the film doesn't use any of Harry's arrangements, but this is the BEST big-band style CD you will ever hear. Infact, anybody buying this CD after hearing Harry singing his own big-band compositions, will think these all are his. Harry - You Are The Man!
