Connick’s music encompasses jazz, some of it very much in the style of the crooners of the 1940s and early 1950s, funk and blues. Harry Connick, Jr. was born Joseph Harry Fowler Connick, Jr. in New Orleans, Louisiana, the son of Harry Connick, Sr., who was the district attorney of Orleans Parish from 1977-2003, and Anita (née Livingston), a judge, lawyer, and former Louisiana Supreme Court justice. His parents also owned a record store. Connick, Jr.`s father is Irish American, and Connick, Jr.`s mother, who died in 1981, was Jewish. Connick, Jr. has a sister, Suzanna. He was raised in the Lakeview neighborhood of New Orleans. Connick`s musical talents soon came to the fore when he learned the keyboards at the age of three, played publicly at age six and recorded with a local jazz band at ten. At age nine he performed the Piano Concerto No. 3 Opus 37 of Beethoven with the then New Orleans Symphony Orchestra (now the Louisiana Philharmonic). His musical talents were developed at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and under the tutelage of Ellis Marsalis and James Booker.
On April 16, 1994, Connick, Jr. married model Jill Goodacre, originally from Texas, at the St. Louis Cathedral, New Orleans, Louisiana. They have three daughters: Georgia Tatom (born April 17, 1996), Sarah Kate (September 12, 1997), and Charlotte (born June 26, 2002). The family currently resides in New Canaan, Connecticut. He is a founder of the Krewe of Orpheus, a music-based New Orleans krewe, taking its name from Orpheus of classical mythology.
