Rick's Interview with Harry Connick Jr. 7.20.20

Tuesday, July 21st

Harry Connick Jr. is one of the most talented musicians of the last 50 years, and that should be enough, but for Harry it's just a starting point.  With deep roots in the Crescent City, Harry returned to New Orleans in June for a CBS TV special that featured his new song dedicated to those servings others, "Stars Still Shine".  Proceeds generated by the song will be donated to the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music in New Orleans, a one-of-a-kind facility started by Harry and Branford Marsalis.  Harry was on with Rick Crandall talking about the song, the Center and Johnny Mercer.
