Harry Connick, Jr. In Concert On Broadway (Episode #3604)
V-me: Sun, Mar 31, 2013 -- 9:00 PM
After 20 years, three-time Grammy Award-winner Harry Connick Jr. returns to Broadway in a program of favorites, performed in Connick's trademark New Orleans style. Taped in July of 2010 at New York's Neil Simon Theatre, the evening features a 20-piece swing band and a 10-piece string section, with the star on both a Steinway grand and upright honky-tonk piano. Among the mix of standards, show tunes and jazz classics are such evergreens as "It Had to Be You," "Hey, There" (from Connick's recent hit revival of The Pajama Game), "You Don't Know Me," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Mona Lisa," "The Way You Look Tonight," "Who Can I Turn to?" "Sweet Georgia Brown," "Take Her to the Mardi Gras" (from his 2001 Broadway musical, Thou Shalt Not), and "St. James Infirmary." Connick is backed by a cadre of top flight musicians, including trombonist Lucien Barbarin, trumpeter Mark Braud, saxophonist Jerry Weldon, bassist Neal Caine, and drummer Arthur Latin.
