Growing up in New Orleans, Harry Connick, Jr., studied piano with keyboard legends James Booker and Ellis Marsalis. A performer from the age of five who made his first jazz album at age ten, he moved to New York at age 18 and quickly made his Columbia Records debut at the head of a jazz trio. His next effort, "20," added his vocals to the mix, and his singing was also featured on his first big-band album, the multi-platinum "When Harry Met Sally."

Harry Connick, Jr. - booking information In the '90s, the full scope of Connick's artistry emerged. His albums featured original instrumental and vocal music ("Lofty's Roach Soufflé" and "We are in Love," respectively), explored funk ("She" and "Star Turtle") and romantic balladry ("To See You"), and then pulled all of these strands together in the decade-ending tour de force "Come by Me."  More recent years have seen further triumphs, including his Grammy-winning reflection on favorite music of his youth, "Songs I Heard," and his jazz quartet triumph "Other Hours."  The first of a "Connick on Piano" series, released by Marsalis Music, contains instrumental versions of the Tony-nominated songs Connick composed for the Broadway musical "Thou Shalt Not."  "Harry for the Holidays," also led to a successful television special of the same name broadcast by NBC on Thanksgiving night, and a hugely successful US tour in November and December of 2003.
