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.

1.0 out of 5 stars HOT MUSICIANS & MONOTONE VOCALS Feb. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sorry but Nat would not be thrilled with vocals that would be more fitting to a Julie London tribute. If you really want to be blown away by a JAZZ DIVA tribute to Nat, then sample the tracks on Carmen McRae's brilliant "You're Lookin' At Me" tribute and you will hear a tribute collection that is classic and would get a big nod of approval from Nat himself! Diana does some excellent keyboard playing and I love the guitar work and rhythm but these vocals don't take you away like Carmen's or many other Jazz Diva's who are not getting the acclaim they deserve. I guess the music industry thinks that a pretty face is what sells in a well produced setting but you cannot build alone on this for too long. The character and soul in the Carmen McRae tribute is so strong and one can go to the Liza Minnelli "Minnelli On Minnelli-Live at the Palace" and sample "If I Had You" and hear how a rich soulful voice can turn this song into a really satisfying listening experience!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Diva's Best to Date Jan. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Diana Krall is the consensus Diva of Jazz these days. While I don't necessarily agree, there's no denying her talent, and if you're curious about her artistry, this is a good place to start. This, her tribute to Nat King Cole, along with the ensuing "Love Scenes", are her best works to date. Highlights include the rollicking "Hit That Jive, Jack" and the haunting "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" (the latter proving that Krall is capable of doing something memorable that isn't necessarily "cool.") Highly recommended, whether you're a big fan or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a joy to behold... Nov. 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
Every song on this CD is wonderful. Diana Krall is surely one of the most refreshing talents to come around in a while. She infuses each song with her smoky voice, very passionate. Her piano playing is fine and complements the other soloists perfectly. Lastly, her version of 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams' is the best recording of that standard I've ever heard.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This Would Make Nat Nod with a Smile March 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
"All for You" is the album Diana Krall came to prominence with in 1996. It scored a Grammy nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album and although it lost out to Cassandra Wilson's gem "New Moon Daughter", remains one of the best releases of the talented Canadian singer/pianist.
Krall's piano skills shine here as on none of her other albums. She has a reputation of hitting fewer notes with great effect, but on this tribute album to the great Nat King Cole her pianism reached heights close to virtuosity.
Both on uptempo songs and ballads her style emits joy and intensity and, unlike with her later release "Love Scenes", the listener is not falling asleep at the end.
This is Krall pianist at her best and singer almost there as well.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like all the popular Cole music
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
