"Nowhere with Love" is produced by Max Wellman. On the heels of their very successful run of Sinatra-themed concerts, Max & the big band embark on the renowned original music of Harry Connick, Jr., focusing mainly on the acclaimed albums from the early ‘90s such as Blue Light, Red Light, Come By Me, To See You, the soundtrack from When Harry Met Sally, & more. These songs were the first that Wellman heard as a child, convincing him from an early age to pursue jazz & the Great American Songbook.
