This 1992 CD is a throwback to Harry Connick's earlier sets for it mostly features the pianist-vocalist on a solo set of standards. Ellis Marsalis drops by to back Connick's vocal on "Stardust," Connick accompanies Johnny Adams' singing on "Lazybones," and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" is a trio outing with tenor saxophonist Ned Goold and bassist Ray Brown. Otherwise it is all Connick and he sounds in good form on such tunes as "Music, Maestro, Please," "On the Street Where You Live," "After You've Gone" and "Muskrat Ramble." It is a pity that Connick has not continued in this direction.

Five of the songs on this CD are instrumental. The first song is the only good one. The rest of the songs are awful. This is one of the CDs that made me stop listening to Harry.
