Various information

  • Harry Connick Jr explains how it came to be a duo album: “When my drummer Arthur Latin hurt his shoulder, I decided to wait before recording another quartet album, and asked Branford if he would do something with me. What started as a project intended to mix solo piano and duo performances turned into an entire duo album.“
  • "Chanson Du Vieux Carré", track #12, means "Song of the French Quarter". Chanson Du Vieux Carré is also the name of the third album in the Connick on piano series.
  • Track #5 "I Like Love More", #6 "All Things" and #13 "Good To Be Home" are compositions from Connick's Tony nominated score for the 2001 Broadway musical Thou Shalt Not.
