Stephen Holden on Harry Connick Jr.

The NYTimes reviews Harry Connick Jr.’s current Broadway concert: “Taking control of everything has meant singing, playing, songwriting, arranging, orchestrating and bandleading, all pointed toward the goal of embodying something like a fusion of Frank Sinatra (and Sinatra’s greatest arranger, Nelson Riddle); Elvis Presley; Peter Allen (by way of Professor Longhair); and Frank Loesser reconceived in the spirit of New Orleans. And that ignores his movie career as a sympathetic leading man who can pivot on a dime and play a scary sociopath.”
