Every Man Should Know (Columbia)
by Harry Connick, Jr.
FOR FANS OF: Keb Mo, Amy Grant, Mavis Staples
Rating: 4 Stars
Self-described as having “no rules, no limits,” the Grammy winning crooner-song-writer-actor pairs a series of New York and Nashville sessions to create his most intriguing and indiscriminate set list to date. Folk, funk, gospel, jazz and Dixieland are all chartered with finesse. But Connick’s affable musicianship — and definitive vocal chops — is the selling point each and every time.
