He makes this creature so attractive — even compelling 50

March 13, 2015 11:55 AM Audra McDonald, a Living Legend

If there ever was a noted voice from heaven, I would have to say that this title belongs to Audra McDonald. Whenever you have the opportunity to witness an artist in a concert setting, you either fall deeper in love with them, or you are pushed away by their energy in this more intimate space.

The media did Harry Connick (and the rest of us) a disservice when they tried to anoint him as the “new Sinatra” 25 years ago—it would have made more sense to promote Mr. Connick as the latest in the long line of New Orleans party-parade pianists like James Booker and Professor Longhair; Mr. Connick has also since proven himself a very worthy heir to Alfred 72
