Oh, My NOLA
Released: Jan 2007
Harry Connick Jr. puts his talents as a pianist, vocalist, arranger and songwriter together to paint this vivid musical portrait of New Orleans, at turns friendly, laid-back, brassy, frenetic, confused and wounded. Connick's New Orleans isn't just a city, it also encompasses his musical heroes (Louis Armstrong, James Booker, Allen Toussaint), his family, his musician friends, and the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Key tracks include the uplifting "Elijah Rock" and "Yes We Can Can."
