We need more math classes, we need more science. It’s the art of math and the art of
science that creates all the innovation, and we have a tradition of great arts, great music.


Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” is still in print. They’re debating right now over Mark Twain. He’s still available. Winslow Homer can still be seen. Our arts are – they’re there. We got to go get them and understand that this is an important legacy for our country.


Music is the art of all the invisible things that are real. Art, emotion, spiritual essence, consciousness – these things are hard to prove. Music helps you to focus on your sound. We understand that for very young kids.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Country

Because the blues is the basis of most American music in the 20th century. It’s a 12-bar form that’s played by jazz, bluegrass and country musicians. It has a rhythmic vocabulary that’s been used by rock n’ roll. It’s related to spirituals, and even the American fiddle tradition.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Culture

The fact that we are culturally ignorant and we don’t know what our heritage is, the price that we pay is that we act outside of ourselves almost all the time. We make very bad decisions how we deal with other people and their culture.


Our culture is what we did together. What did Walt Whitman represent for all of us? What was his message to us? That is an inheritance, and when we squander that inheritance we act outside. We don’t know who we are; we don’t know where we are.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Dad

I struggle every day with trying to be a better dad, a better husband,
better musician, better artist. It consumes me, and I don’t see an end in sight.


Well, my dad was the district attorney of New Orleans for about 30 years.


My dad and mom believed that you do what you have to do in private
and don’t make a big deal out of it. Just try to help people as much as you can.


I think a dad has to make his daughter feel that he’s genuinely interested in what she’s going through.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Daughters

I only tour in short bursts, I’m only ever away from my family and three daughters for a month or two.


I think a dad has to make his daughter feel that he’s genuinely interested in what she’s going through.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Jazz

You basically have to play everything (in New Orleans), because you’re getting calls to play
gigs of all different styles, from classical to R&B to funk; modern jazz to traditional jazz.


Girls liking bad boys is the cookie jar complex. When somebody tells you you can’t have a cookie,
you want a cookie. But I live in a bad-boy world, artistically. All the jazz boys are bad boys.


It is jazz music that called me to be a musician and
I have always sang the songs that moved me the most.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Mothers

I’m gay, it’s all a big scam. My kids don’t even know who their mother is.


At 14, I was playing in clubs until 3 A.M. My dad was the district attorney of New Orleans
and my mother was a judge, so I saw hookers and drugs but I never wanted that life.


I think a dad has to make his daughter feel that he’s genuinely interested in what she’s going through.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Music

No particular music makes me feel nostalgic. If it’s great, it just keeps me in the present moment.
That level of music is like a classic story, like the Iliad-something so perfect it can never be old.


Jazz music is the power of now. There is no script. It’s conversation. The emotion is given to you
by musicians as they make split-second decisions to fulfill what they feel the moment requires.


How great musicians demonstrate a mutual respect and trust on the bandstand can alter your outlook on the world and enrich every aspect of your life, understanding what it means to be a global citizen in the most modern sense.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Songs

If you can say the lyrics almost like a poem and they stand up, that’s a great thing.
Some songs have great lyrics and I don’t like the melodies, and vice versa.


I’ve learned that people latch onto labels and stereotypes. There was a period when I was asked in every single interview how I liked being the new Frank Sinatra… I think people will soon realize that I do a lot more than interpret old songs.


‘The Christmas Song,’ by Nat King Cole, is not only a masterful performance; to me it just sounds
like the holidays. I’ve never sung it, because Nat’s version is so perfect. I gotta leave it alone.


It’s jazz music that called me to be a musician & I have always sang the songs that moved me the most.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Tradition

To say that the Afro American created jazz doesn’t mean anything bad about Anglo Americans, and I always teach my younger jazz musicians that at this point the entirety of the American tradition is your heritage, and you need to know it.

Thoughts by Harry Connick Jr. about Wife

I dated one girl before my wife.


Say sorry to my wife about five times a day for various reasons.


Marriage has made me a lot happier and I’m deeply in
love with my wife, and I thank God for her every day.


[When asked how he’s keeping his 12-year marriage to wife Jill fresh] Hookers, drugs. We’re playing the field right now.
