The soundtrack for one of the biggest Hollywood successes of the '80s, When Harry Met Sally... consists of standards performed by singer and pianist Harry Connick, Jr., with a big band and orchestra arranged by Marc Shaiman. The soundtrack album (which stands apart from the movie) was a big hit and a major step forward for the young pianist-vocalist. Connick warmly sings such numbers as It Had to Be You, Our Love Is Here to Stay, But Not for Me, and Let's Call the Whole Thing Off, while usually accompanied by bassist Benjamin Wolfe, drummer Jeff Tain Watts, and a big band. Frank Wess' warm tenor makes a brief appearance on Our Love Is Here to Stay. In addition, there are a few melodic instrumentals, including some solo Connick piano on Winter Wonderland and Autumn in New York. The performance of Connick on this wonderful soundtrack won him his first Grammy for Best Jazz Male Vocal Performance. The soundtrack went to #1 on the Billboard Traditional Jazz Chart and was within the top 50 on the Billboard 200. Connick also toured North America in support of this album. It went on to reach double-platinum status. Track Listing – SIDE A 1. IT HAD TO BE YOU 2. LOVE IS HERE TO STAY 3. STOMPIN' AT THE SAVOY 4. BUT NOT FOR ME 5. WINTER WONDERLAND SIDE B 1.

This is a BBC Radio full-cast dramatisation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel, starring Bryan Dick as Nick and Andrew Scott as Jay Gatsby. The greatest book on the fallibility of the American dream, The Great Gatsby, a portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, is by far the most popular classic in modern American fiction. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's - and his country's - most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. Gatsby is the man who has everything ... but one thing will always be out of his reach. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bryan Dick, Andrew Scott.
