Occasion: Connick on Piano, Volume 2 is an instrumental album recorded in 2005, presenting Harry Connick Jr. on piano and Branford Marsalis on saxophone, playing their own jazz compositions.
Presented as Volume 2 in the Connick on Piano series from Marsalis music. (Volume 1 is Connick’s quartet album Other Hours.)
Harry Connick Jr explains how it came to be a duo album: “When my drummer Arthur Latin hurt his shoulder, I decided to wait before recording another quartet album, and asked Branford if he would do something with me. What started as a project intended to mix solo piano and duo performances turned into an entire duo album.”
A DVD with Connick & Marsalis performing music live from this album, A Duo Occasion, was released in November 2005.
