Published September 18, 2003.Harry Connick Jr.Other Hours(Marsalis/Rounder)Harry drops the Sinatra wanna-be act and pulls together an instrumental jazz record. Who knew at the heart of Connick were Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell? Other Hours is based around small-combo swing, but the band lifts off in various directions in their solos, making an eclectic, brilliant record. Other Hours proves that Harry Connick Jr. is not just another pop-jazz crooner with slick solos—he has killer chops that can rip down the house with the best of them. —Trevor MacLaren
