It's coming up soon . . .

It's coming up soon, but Harry Connick Jr. isn't exactly sure yet what program he, his big band and the Los Angeles Philharmonic are going to be performing at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday and Saturday.

Actually, he didn't much like planning in advance during his recently concluded 13-performance Broadway run either. As he told one New York reporter: "It would kill me if anyone who saw this show twice saw the same thing."

What he does know is they'll be playing some songs from his Grammy-nominated album of American classics, "Your Songs," which has propelled a world tour that has already taken the Connecticut-based entertainer to such places as Europe, the Middle East, Australia and China. At the Neil Simon Theatre, as at the Bowl, audiences just had to wait to know that night's mix of romantic ballads, big-band jazz, New Orleans funk and amusing patter.
