The Artistry of ... Harry Connick Jr.

I don’t know how big his heart is. I think it may be one of the biggest though? I know that it sure seems like it has no bounds.

He overflows with respect and genuine thanks for the influences in, and upon, his musical life. There have been many and they are rich in the depth of their impact in a truly unique and all-encompassing New Orleans fashion. Like a haunting the cultural mixture of the people, their no nonsense way of loving and telling stories, their way of sharing, feeding and ‘making music ‘ in ‘all kinds of ways’ together is a part of his soul. When he talks about music and culture it’s like hearing about a good meal, a delicious tasty musical treasure.
