I have grown to love this album. I hadn't heard much of Harry's music before seeing him interviewed on Parkinson some time back. As a modern jazz fan I thought it might be a little sweet/middle-of-road, but I was overjoyed with it - especially after extended listening (as my kids love it too!)- the arrangements, the vocal clarity and the overall production quality are superb. The Pure Imagination/Candy Man track is simply beautiful. Highly recommended.

Wasn't sure this was to be my cup of tea, but I shouldn't have worried as Harry reworks some old favourites from childhood musicals, as masterfully as any work he has done to date. Particular favourites being Pure Imagination/Candy Man from Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and Over The Rainbow. If you like Harry you'll love this, different but still just as good.

Nothing could have been more appropriate after having been around for aeons, than for Harry to realease 'Songs I heard'. This pure escapist album transports you back to the days of Poppins, Wonka, Annie and other sublime childrens musical films. From the samba-party style opening track, throught the somewhat dark syncopated piano/voice of 'Oompah Loompah' and the extremely endearing 'Maybe', this album has all the ingredients for a completely dazzling trip down memory lane. Perhaps 'Ding Dong' lacks Harry's usually sparky arrangements and tends to fizzle little after about 40seconds (maybe it lacks his near-perfect vocals) but the other awe-inspiring orchestrations either make you want to dance around the kitchen or settle down with a cup of tea in front of one of those amazing films from yesteryear. Absolutely brilliant!

You never know what Harry Connick Jr is going to come up with next.
On paper, big band swing arrangements of some of your favourite songs from the movies of your youth sounds a great idea, and it is a refreshing change to hear songs from Mary Poppins and Sound of Music, amongst others, given a good seeing to.
However, it is all a bit over-the-top, and it is difficult to listen to the album all the way through in one go. The arrangements are exhuberant, not to say spectacular, but the contrast between soft and loud, fast and slow, sounds a touch overdone. Your hi-fi amp and speakers will love the workout, but I'm not sure that your ears, or your neighbours', will.
So, like the spoonful of sugar, it's fine in small doses. And it's great as a novelty item.

Songs I Heard from Harry Commick Jnr like each of his other albums proves what a thoroughly versatile talent he has. His voice gently blends a period song yet gives it his own individual twist. My only criticism is that sometimes the variety of song types/styles makes it difficult to appreciate the whole album rather than enjoying a series of individual tracks.

Perhaps its time for Mr Connick to stretch his music base and put his style on other semi jazz classics. So Harry Who? Why the incredibly talented Mr Harry Connick Jnr.
