Harry Connick,Jr.: Only You (#2904)
In a young career already marked by many firsts, music wunderkind Harry Connick, Jr. continues to redefine boundaries-no small feat in a resume that includes over 20 million albums sold, three Grammy awards and nominations for Tony, Emmy, Oscar, Golden Globe and Cable Ace Awards. Yet despite his many achievements as musician, singer, composer and actor, Connick isn't one to coast on past triumphs, and is constantly reaching new heights as a versatile and gifted entertainer. In this concert of material from "Only You," his upcoming Columbia Records album of standards from the 50s and 60s, Connick makes his first return to GREAT PERFORMANCES since his GP, primetime television debut in 1990. Among the classics that Connick remakes as his own are "Crazy," "Once in My Life," "The Very Thought of You," and "My Blue Heaven." [56 minutes]
