We Are in Loveby Harry Connick Jr.
At one point in 1990, two Harry Connick, Jr. albums were released almost simultaneously, an instrumental outing with his trio (Lofty's Roach Souffle) and this vocal-oriented album. Oddly enough We Are in Love is the more successful of the two. Connick's vocals, while limited, are personable, guitarist Russell Malone gets in some short solos and Branford Marsalis makes two strong guest appearances (one apiece on tenor and soprano). Most selections utilize an orchestra and, although Connick is heard on piano, the emphasis is on his voice. He contributed most of the tunes but the high points are the two standards "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and "It's Alright with Me."

"We Are in Love" is a really good song. "Recipe for Love" is all right. The other songs have bad arrangements and are just flat out boring. Play the samples on your computer before you spend your hard earned money.
