Diana Krall's big strengths when she first emerged were a musicality about lyrics that savoured the weight of every syllable, an instrumentalist's timing and ideas (though her piano-playing isn't up to her singing, it's been a crucial complement to it) and a delicate intimacy that made every member of an audience feel they were getting her personal attention.
Success has swelled the budgets, and risked overwhelming her fragile eloquence and jazz instincts.
But though this set drops into the dinner-jazz and easy-listening boxes, there's enough subtle orchestral arrangement and sharp horn soloing to engage the big-band buffs, plenty of Krall at her smokiest, and three crisp tracks just for quartet.
A breezy version of" Day In and Day Out" gets a lively Count Basie treatment, piano tinkling over chugging guitar.
Diana Krall affection for lyrics add new turns to "Exactly Like You" and "I Was Doing Alright", and her oddly frank, confiding whisper makes "Little Girl Blue" the best thing on the album.
An eerie brass fanfare (suggesting the approach of Gil Evans' and Miles Davis's Porgy and Bess) turns out to be the overture to "Willow Weep for Me" - a beautiful arrangement imparting a mysterious and faintly sinister quality to the song.
"From This Moment On" is full of classy execution, but it's familiar territory for Krall and her fans.
