Lofty's Roach Souffle
Released: Jul 1990
This solid bop effort finds Connick playing piano in the vein of Thelonious Monk. Released at the same time as We Are in Love, Lofty's Roach Souffle became one of the best-selling "serious" jazz albums of the modern age. The title track is named after a survivalist recipe a tough British vet told Connick about on the set of the war movie Memphis Bell.
