I will be the first to admit this was not my kind of CD. I had to really keep an open mind listening to it. Since this was not my normal style of music I had to look at it from the point of view of someone who might enjoy this. Here is what I came up with.
A few words to describe this CD would be classy, smooth, crisp, wonderfully played, and meaningful. The way the instruments played so smoothly and in sync was joyous to listen to. The piano, the trumpets, and all the great instruments were well played. Check it out!
Here are the track listings.

Ok, so honestly when I saw Harry Connick Jr on the cover of this CD I thought of him being on Will & Grace and was thinking did he sing? I thought maybe it was other people singing the songs and to my surprise it was him. So putting the CD in for the first time I was not excited at all. So here we are a few weeks later and I am writing my blog review and to my surprise I have listened to this CD almost every single day since I got it. Who would of thought that it would help me relax, sing, smile, think about memories, and enjoy my drive into work.
I didn't find one or two songs that I liked. I found FOUR that I listen to almost everyday. Every morning now on my way to work I sing Can't Help Falling in Love With You, And I Love Her, Close To You, and my all time favorite Your Song. I enjoy this CD more than I ever thought possible.
Here is a list of all the great songs on the CD.
