Harry Connick Jr. at the Ryman 

Connick has found success in nearly everything he’s pursued since establishing himself as a young piano prodigy. The New Orleans native’s career has taken him from jazz and ragtime to New Orleans funk, though he made his bones resurrecting Frank Sinatra, presaging the ’90s cocktail revival with his jazzy Grammy award-winning soundtrack to When Harry Met Sally. The good-looking, silver-throated crooner has appeared in Movies (Independence Day), TV (Will & Grace) and on Broadway (The Pajama Game), while remaining a prolific artist with at least 25 releases since his debut 30 years ago as an 11-year-old. He’s supporting his third holiday album What a Night! A Christmas Album, infusing standards with vibrant Big Easy brass, much like last year’s tribute to his hometown, Oh, My NOLA.
