Harry Connick is heard in three roles on this CD. As a jazz pianist, he makes some cameo appearances and shows that his playing has evolved a bit from his earlier years. Connick has matured as a vocalist, and he sounds fine backed by a string orchestra and his quartet, never stretching himself. All ten selections (ballads dealing with love) are his originals, and he displays some talent as a composer/lyricist/arranger, although it is doubtful that any of these numbers will become standards in the future. A more interesting set overall than his preceding pop date, To See You is a step in the right direction for Harry Connick, Jr., and also features brief, warm tenor solos from Charles Goold.
