Harry Connick Jr. - The Other Hours
This piece starts of very simple with the bass line in the piano just going do sol do sol over and over again untill the sax comes in to give the melody..which starts sol do do…then flowing on through a very mellow and relaxing melody. Then the rhythm sections presents the part a little more so that you get the really swinging feeling…The sax soloist does a great job of really throwing the piece into an interesting jazz piece by mixing extreme legato with staccato. This really keeps the song moving in parts and then also feeling like its falling behind in other…a very unstable feeling. In the middle of the piece there is a rhythm section solo. This is where the piano, bass, and drums shows off their skill. After a couple of minutes of passing the free flowing motion through the rhythm section it heads back to the sax and it pulls it back into the A section. Through most of the piece it has felt really laid back and easy going. Then at the end it has kind of a weird terminative section where you know its going to end, but the style doesn’t seem to flow this the other parts of the song…I am kind of confused as to why the composer decided to end it this way…The style gets more up beat, swinging….hummm..great song…just a weird ending….
