Jazz Fest 2004
Harry Connick, Jr.
by Paul Rogers
The reach of New Orleans' musical heritage into contemporary hearts is exemplified by Harry Connick, Jr. Composer, musician and singer, Harry trained with New Orleans piano legends James Booker and Ellis Marsalis and was influenced by countless others. His charismatic vocal style is coupled to a transcendent keyboard technique while his compositions breathe life into our emergent feelings. Harry's multi-platinum albums showcase these facets but only hint at his expansive talents. Harry is a true renaissance man: playing piano and singing, arranging for and touring with his own big band, holding a patent as an inventor, hosting television specials (for which he designs his own sets), performing in roles from comedic to dramatic in films and on television as well as drawing and painting with considerable skill. Who knew? Paul Rogers, whose Wynton Marsalis poster (JF02) is considered a tour-de-force of poster making by connoisseurs of the art, depicts Connick composing at the piano in a sun-splashed balconied French Quarter aerie. The updated mid-century palette bridges this 21st century, 35th anniversary Festival poster to its roots in a century not long gone.
