Michael Bublé should take a good, hard look at the career of Harry Connick, Jr. The pianist and crooner could have coasted on his good looks and easy charm behind the microphone, doing nothing but Great American Songbook standards and Rat Pack retreads, like Bublé has. But Connick's jazz chops and songwriting skills have placed him in his own class. He released two New Orleans-centric records in 2007: a disc of instrumentals and Oh, My NOLA, which features Connick's take on many classic New Orleans tunes as well as a few new originals. His show at the Fabulous Fox Theatre is billed as "A Holiday Celebration," so expect to hear songs from his just-released collection of Christmas songs, titled What A Night! A Christmas Album.
