Jazz the way it should be done!
on 11 April 2007
Harry Connick is probably more famous now for his movie appearences or his stint on hit american comedy Will and Grace than anything else but few remember him for his music until you mention When harry met Sally and then people might know what your going on about but its something in Connicks career that is sorely over looked.
In this dvd we see Connick at his very best as he heads up an array of talented musicians in the form of his new york big band including Leroy Jones on Trumpet who has some classic banter moments in the Concert with Connick. It kicks off with the fantastic 'Sweet Georgia Brown' and moves on to more sultry favorites as 'Dont get around much anymore'. Harry and his band also do their version of Disney's 'Bare Necessities'. Then theres 'With Imagination' which is not only a brilliant song with the band singing along but in the middle Harry, accompanied by Leroy Jones and some other band members get up to dance and do so improv. riffing in which Harry plays the drums. The finale 'All of me' has one of the band singing and impersonnating Loius Armstrong. Classic!!! This really is a fantastic concert with some truely great jazz music that you'll watch over and over. Not many artists today can perform and sing like this live. BUY IT!!!
