Harry Connick, Jr.'s vocals perfectly fit the moods throughout the 1989 Billy Crystal film When Harry Met Sally. This soundtrack album which stands apart from the movie was a big hit and a major step forward for the young pianist-vocalist, although it appears to have been the high point of his career. Connick warmly sings such numbers as "It Had to Be You," "Our Love Is Here to Stay," "But Not for Me," and "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," while usually accompanied by bassist Benjamin Wolfe, drummer Jeff "Tain" Watts, and a big band. Frank Wess' warm tenor makes a brief appearance on "Our Love Is Here to Stay." In addition, there are a few melodic instrumentals, including ...

    When Harry Met Sally Soundtrack

    I enjoyed the CD very much. The songs flowed together. The instrumentals were incredible and fun to listen to. I can't believe Harry Connick, Jr., originally performed this CD at such a young age. Fans of this genre and the movie will love the CD.

    Not the one.....

    When people want to listen to a SOUND TRACK, that's what they want - the sound track from the movie. Not somebody's monotone voice singing the songs. We want the original recordings. This was SO disappointing. Yuck.

    Harry has no range in his voice

    He has absolutely no range in his voice. If you like a single tone, get this. I'll listen to Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan or Frank Sinatra sing these songs. They have voices with great range.
