Grammy- and Emmy-winning musician and actor Harry Connick Jr. makes his debut for Verve Records with his new album, True Love: A Celebration of Cole Porter.

He has sold more than 30 million albums during a stellar career that spans more than three decades in music, film, TV and on both concert and Broadway stages. His new project puts the focus on his talents not only as a pianist and a singer, but also as an arranger, orchestrator and conductor. His voice is in fine form and manages to get every nuance of these songs, from the widely known Just One of Those Things to the lesser known Mind If I Make Love to You.

During a visit to Toronto, Harry Connick Jr. dropped by JAZZ.FM91 and joined us on the air for a chat about the new recording, how it came together, and what he learned in the process.
