Harry Connick Jr.

When: Mon., April 25, 7:30 p.m. and Tue., April 26, 7:30 p.m. 2016

Best-selling, Great American Songbook crooners don’t always enjoy the strongest reputation among jazz crowds — a reputable, gigging musician might look at Michael Bublé the way a Michelin chef looks at Arby’s. But Harry Connick Jr. balances commercial success and critical acclaim with his darling voice and a piano style splitting the difference between big-band stomp and New Orleans street blues. Since soundtracking When Harry Met Sally in 1989, the NOLA native’s surprisingly crass banter and boxer’s good looks have made him a crowd favorite — enough to book back-to-back nights at the Tobin.
