Although not a Blu-Ray, the quality of this combo CD/DVD is amazing.
Recorded live in Broadway by engineer extraordinaire David Hewitt and son Ryan, it is an amazing performance.
Harry Connick Jr is the ultimate crooner and performer, knowing when and how to give the spotlight to each and everyone of his talented musician.
He is himself a great piano player primarily, but not afraid to pick a trumpet or a saxophone to duo with his residents wind players.
And these are the most entertaining parts of the DVD.
Obviously his voice and the mastering of the emotions he manages to convey with it are the hallmark of his own talent and the reasons behind his extraordinary and enduring success.
It was one of my Christmas presents and I have watched and listened to it half a dozen times already, and I think I might leave you now to watch again before calling my Mum back in France as it is her 93rd birthday!
Below a quick video to wet tour appetite and some photos of the mobile recording studio used to produce these records. Enjoy!
