All songs on Harry Connick, Jr.'s forthcoming album "Every Man Should Know" were written by Harry. And on this album he exposes his feelings as never before. "No rules, no limits," is how the multi-talented artist describes the songs for the new collection. "I don't recall ever reaching quite as deeply - or confidently - into my inhibition pool... I felt ready to explore some of my personal experiences in some of the songs this time around." The title track "Every Man Should Know" was inspired by real life. "I was building a workbench with a carpenter friend," Connick explains, "and my lack of knowledge about carpentry left me feeling so inadequate. It led me to think about other things that every man should know, like how to change a tire. Then I began thinking about what everybody should know how to do, and that's to love." On "Every Man Should Know," Harry collaborates once again with long time friends Branford Marsalis (soprano sax on "Let Me Stay") and Wynton Marsalis (trumpet on "Being Alone"). A common feature of every track, from the jazz feel of "One Fine Thing" to the country feel of "Time To Go," is the perfect fit of each Connick arrangement. "You have to know what's right for each tune," he explains, "I've learned to trust my instincts. I usually start with the lyrics, which suggest a melody, which suggests a groove - at which point the arrangement becomes fairly clear." The range of these songs is vast, touching upon love and loss, celebration and sorrow, tragedy and hope. With Every Man Should Know, Harry Connick, Jr. triumphs once again with a depth of feeling that signals another milestone for one of the music world's most multi-faceted artists.
