After a critically acclaimed, 15 day sold-out run on Broadway comes the release of HARRY CONNICK, JR. IN CONCERT ON BROADWAY. The show left critics raving and fans cheering. Over the past two decades, Harry Connick, Jr. has proven to be among the world's most successful and multi-talented artists. Harry first reached a mass audience as a pianist, singer and bandleader, securing his place as a renaissance man and versatile entertainer. His career has been studded with awards and recognition, including several multi-platinum and gold albums; 25 million albums sold around the world; Grammy and Emmy Awards; and Tony nominations for both his work as a composer and for his lead acting role.
Harry Connick, Jr. has redefined the art of jazz piano and vocals. His repertoire ranges from stylish and witty interpretations of jazz standards to his own compositions, arranged for solo piano, jazz trio and big band. Singin' & Swingin' charts Harry's exploration of this musical style, in videos for five songs, and in three songs filmed live at London's Dominion Theatre for this home video, plus an exclusive interview.

Originally produced as a television special for PBS, Harry Connick, Jr.: Only You in Concert features the crooner in front of a live audience at Quebec's Theatre Capitole in January 2004.

Harry for the Holidays" is both a traditional and musically adventurous Christmas television special, shot in high definition and originally broadcast on NBC in 2003. The unusual yet beautiful setting is the historic interior of the Bowery Savings Building/Cipriani 42nd Street; one can see an occasional car flash by through windows behind Harry Connick Jr. and his Big Band. Connick's program includes holiday standards but his arrangements are novel, cutting against the melodiousness of the likes of "Silver Bells" or "Frosty the Snowman" with edgy strings, sizzling brass, and complex rhythms. "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town" and "The Happy Elf" swing like nobody's business, while "Silent Night" shifts from blues to ballad to gospel in a collaboration between Connick, Marc Anthony, and Kim Burrell. Whoopi Goldberg and Nathan Lane turn up for some cute sketches, and there's a bonus: Connick and Burrell doing the lovely "I Pray on Christmas," not seen in the NBC broadcast.
Pianist Harry Connick, Jr. and saxophonist Branford Marsalis reunite in a magical live performance. Filmed at the 2005 Ottawa Jazz Festival, the pair reprise original music from their duo recording Occasion, while also including Connick’s "Light the Way" and the standard "Chattanooga Choo Choo."
