Great news to you all, Harry Connick, Jr fans!
Have you all heard about Harry’s cool new album, “Your Songs”?
If you haven’t heard of it yet, Harry’s “Your Songs” album includes classic songs by some of the greatest musicians of all time- with a full jazz big band and string orchestra! In collaboration with the legendary Clive Davis, who has managed & guided the careers of so many fantastic musicians (Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys, Kelly Clarkson), this album includes songs you’ll find yourself humming along to when you hear them! I’ve always been a Harry Connick, Jr fan so I was very excited to participate in this blog tour from One2One Network. I love Harry’s smooth, Orleans jazzy, blues style.
Yes. I do have an eclectic taste in music and Harry Connick Jr’s “Your Songs” album is perfect for when I’m in the mood to listen to classic songs from yesteryear, or just to relax and entertain myself. (And drooling over Harry’s CD cover photo isn’t a bad idea either). 😉
