Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

In Only You Harry Connick, Jr, long unfairly dismissed as an ingenious Sinatra impersonator, covers a selection of familiar chestnuts from the 1950s and 1960s. There's a notable conflict though between Connick the arranger/conductor and Harry the pop crooner. The former seems eager to infuse his charts with the sort of restless, reinventive musicality he displayed on such diverse recent works as the stage foray Thou Shalt Not and the neo-bop jazz instrumental collection it inspired, Other Hours. But the oft Sinatra-smitten vocalist cruising over those masterfully stripped-down arrangements and bluesy, laconic tempos still seems sometimes reluctant to step out of the Chairman's long shadows--and occasionally basks in them, as on the repeated "Jilly" references in "My Blue Heaven". Still, it's artistically head and shoulders above most marketing-driven retro collections--an album that should delight the Connick faithful with its jazzy arrangements and bittersweet takes on the title track and "I Only Have Eyes for You". It may even win a few new converts willing to forgive the periodic genuflection to Sinatra. --Jerry McCulley, Amazon.com

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Wee Small Hours Vol 2??? 22 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
For someone who, for the past fifteen years, has been railing against the popular mantle of "young Sinatra", and doing all he can to disclaim and destroy that moniker, Harry Connick Jr has here made one hell of a Sinatra album. With one blindingly notable difference.
While the current fashion is for some young pretenders to copy Sinatra and his contemporaries, with mixed success to say the least, Harry has gone his own way, as he always does, and done his own arrangements and orchestrations, for a small string and rhythm group, rather than the big band.
The result will not be to everyone's taste. His voice, more Sinatra in tone and phrasing than ever, is gorgeous, clear and easy; there's no problem there. The arrangements now have a very stylised, stripped down, much more jazzy feel, but the rhythm section is a bit ponderous, not to say monotonous. It's a great cure for insomnia.
So I'm very torn. On the one hand these are fine original treatments of some great songs, and you only have to compare "For Once In My Life" here with Michael Buble's version to realise how fine they are. And it could easily have been the album Sinatra never made - In The Wee Small Hours Vol 2?? On the other hand it is just a shade too laid-back and leaden footed for comfort. Still, streets ahead of most of the competition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only Harry! 12 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have most of Harry's offerings and this does not disappoint at all. It is however a slower paced bluesy jazz as opposed to his enliving big band arrangements! What you get here is to appreciate the genius and diversity of this man - not many people will arrange, orchestrate and conduct their own album as well as sing on it! It is an album that will not be gathering dust on my CD rack for want of playing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Only You - a fantastically romantic album 22 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
Harry Connick Jnr's voice was made for these songs, which are unashamedly romantic and ideal for mellow nights in or listening whilst eating dinner. Very smooth and relaxing, even the more upbeat songs float along like silky smooth chocolate. Songs about being happy in love - Gorgeous album.

3.0 out of 5 stars More 16 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
A bit boring, Harry tries to do the best he can. They are very good songs to make them so bad.

Un poco aburrido, Harry trata de hacer lo mejor que puede. Son muy buenas canciones para que queden tan mal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fabulous ! 26 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow what a voice !
Whilst Michael Buble seems to be the current 'King of Swing' (and nothing wrong with that I might add !)
Let's not forget HC Junior's magnificent influence - fabulous CD !
