Product Description


All for You is a tribute to the Nat "King" Cole Trio of the 1940s, when Cole performed as both a singer and a pianist. Krall, like her heroes Lena Horne and Carmen McRae, is also a singer-pianist, and she plays both roles on most of the songs here. She's able to link her singing to her piano playing in sympathetic ways and projects tremendous feeling through both. Like Cole in the '40s, Krall plays with a drummerless trio--here with guitarist Russell Malone and bassist Paul Keller. Their sense of intimate rapport is especially valuable on ballads such as "You Call It Madness" and "I'm Thru with Love," but also allows such up-tempo tunes as "Hit That Jive Jack" to swing with surprising lightness. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Krall CD ! Dec 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Krall CD as she swings much more on this Nat King Cole Trio tribute (not just sultry singing like her newer Cds) . Also she plays the piano more. I would buy her CDs just to listen to here play the piano as she is one the best jazz pianist on the scene today. I like her song selection which includes Hit that Jive Jack, Frim Fram Sauce, Deed I Do. Baby baby all the time, Gee Baby ain't I good to you . Her trio (like the Nat King Cole Trio)with no drums - Russel Malone on guitar and Paul Keller on bass really sound good together.

2.0 out of 5 stars ehh Sept. 23 2003
By Natasha
Format:Audio CD
Sure, this album works on the same level as a fun dance album would- it's not dance, but it's something that you would put in when you don't want to hear music that is stirring and inspiring. And sometimes, you don't, right? But I wish people would stop making all these statements about how darn great Diana Krall is, come on??It makes me wonder if this is the first piece of jazz these guys have ever bought. To praise this and call it great jazz is insulting, to well, great jazz!!Diana is a completely middle of the road singer, and the catch is, is that,she doesn't really know what to do with jazz. She sings in more of a soft pop tone and doesn't possess any real emotion. There isn't anything distinctive or expressive about her voice. Her piano playing is lackluster-it doesn't bring out any of the nuances in the music and sounds positevely detached. I believe that Diana Krall is much more about good marketing, than she is about true music. There can't be any other reason such a mediocre singer has come so far.

After buying and enjoying her next two albums (Love scenes and When I look in your eyes), this one came as a surprise to me - but what a pleasant surprise. Like Jeri Southern, a brilliant singer-pianist of an earlier generation, Diana began as a pianist but was obliged to sing as well in order to get work. On this album, recorded when Diana was still unknown, Diana's piano is very prominent. For those who enjoy hearing Diana singing love songs, there are plenty here, but there are upbeat songs to give more variation than you will find in the other albums I mentioned.
Yet, this is all achieved with very few musicians. Russell Malone on guitar and Paul Keller on bass accompany Diana singing and playing piano. On most tracks, that's it. Steve Kroon plays percussion on Boulevard of broken dreams, while Benny Green plays piano on If I had you, leaving Diana (for that track only) to just sing.
You have to be good to deliver an album of such quality with so few musicians (especially without a drummer), but Diana and her musicians prove that it can be done. While I did not find this album as instantly appealing as her next two (perhaps because it was not what I expected), it is one that grows on me each time I play it.

5.0 out of 5 stars an impeccable and genuine effort Oct. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
Diana Krall is one of the most beautiful women in comtemporary Jazz, and her looks has undoubtedly paid dividends in terms of her extraordinary popularity and album sales. However, there is no question she is a remarkably gifted artist and Jazz musician, a talent she honed in large measure through listening to the music of Nat King Cole and incorporating his sound and style into her own music. On "All for You", Diana pays a loving tribute to her childhood hero, and indeed the superb renditions contained here are definitely reminiscent of Nat King Cole's cool and breathtakingly smooth sound. Diana, who like King is also a singer-pianist, is at her best on seductive and heartbreaking ballads such as " Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You", "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," and "Baby, Baby All the Time." "All for You" is an impeccable and heartwarming collection of songs and certainly the best recording release in Diana Krall's promising career thus far. An essential album not only for King and Krall fans but anyone who enjoys intelligent music.

I'm dead-up, I really can't believe how modest she is when it comes to the talent she possesses. I almost admire that quality about her. That she could make it all sound so effortless, but still be so humble in her every word. Put Diana Krall behind a piano along with her bassist Paul Keller and guitarist Russell Malone and she is somethin' else. But then give her a set list of twelve standards from Nat King Cole during his much-overlooked days with the Trio in the 1940s, and she is gonna give you what you're looking for and more. This is one of the best tribute albums I've ever heard, and instead of directly copying Cole's style, pianistically and vocally, she adopts the tunes on her own terms and allows the music and her influence to speak for itself. Her playing is refined and mannered, her vocals, 'specially on the ballads are romantic and elegant, and overall she jus' brings somethin' truly special to the table.
She kicks the up-tempo and mid-tempo numbers with class and style like 'I'm an Errand Girl for Rhythm' a perfect way to open the set, 'Hit that Jive Jack' in which her group joins her on the vocal sing-along, and one of my personal favorite Cole recordings 'Frim Fram Sauce', that bouncy little who-knows-what-the-hell-it-means number, but the real stand-outs are the lush ballads. Hearing her sing tunes like 'You Call it Madness' and the absolutely stellar 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', ah, it's that late night thang, fa'real, the kind that puts me in a smoky club at 2 a.m., the hour when everybody has gone home except the people with nothing to go home to but trouble. I'll smoke a cigarette, throw one back, and then lay my head on the bar, close my eyes and get lost in the beautiful elegant sounds of Ms. Krall crooning 'I'm Thru with Love' into that microphone.

And on this cd, they do alot of music of Cole I have never even heard. Thusly, I cannot recommend it. I don't even play it.

Diana Krall reminds me of Mandy Patinkin. She has a gift, there's no doubt about that. But she tends to abuse it, to overuse it, to turn herself into a one-trick pony. Read more
