3.0 out of 5 stars Supercalifragilistic Show Off, 3 Dec. 2003
This review is from: Songs I Heard (Audio CD)
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.
