Product Description

Amazon.ca

More polished than ever before, Diana Krall strolls with languorous ease through The Look of Love, effortlessly charting her continuing growth as a sophisticated singer of the popular songbook. She brings to a delightful selection of Latin flavoured standards all of the charm that has so captivated her huge following during the past few years. That audience, especially those who enjoyed her last outing, When I Look In Your Eyes, will delight in this CD. There may be a little less of Diana's own piano playing than some fans might like, but the accompaniment, mainly from the London Symphony Orchestra, is flawless. Throughout, the lush strings, arranged by Claus Ogerman, are spiced by the addition of a handful of jazz players among which is Diana's long time musical associate, guitarist Russell Malone. Here and there a gentle touch of Latin percussion is added, bringing a pleasing hint of rhythmic urgency but for the most part this is laid-back, relaxed music making of a very high order. --Bruce Crowther

5.0 out of 5 stars A Perfectly Beautiful and Romantic CD April 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
I think it may be a bit of a shame this album is in the "jazz" catagory, for although Diana Krall may be a "jazz artist", on this miraculous CD she simply a singer of standards.... she has style, but (thank God), she sings these songs without destroying or molesting the lyric or melody that so many artists are prone to do today. THE SONGS are the stars on this album, not the "stylings" of a "diva"... how refreshing that is! These songs are not for those with limited attention spans who must have a driving beat and an occasional yelp or cry from the vocalist... these songs are for those who know how to listen and hear truly great orchestrations from veterans like Claus Ogerman (who orchestrated the most mellow of all Frank Sinatra's albums "Francis Albert Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim" in the 1960s).. and this album is a tribute to that very sound. This album is lush, romantic, beautifully crafted and sensuous.. it is for a night of romance and for decompression from the traffic and noise of everyday life. I hope Ms. Krall will give us more albums like this masterpiece. TOP musicians, superbly crafted arrangements and a clear and clean vocalist who respects lyric, melody and emotion make this clearly a 5 star masterwork in every respect.

3.0 out of 5 stars Her peak only score once? Feb. 15 2004
By welek
Format:Audio CD
An anxiously awaited release following her hugely successful Grammys winning album WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES, this fully titled and themed romantic collection (albeit boasted with the support of a rich London orchestra team) lacks the former's vibrant variations of tunes and it appears more like a complimentary package for both industry and the fans thereafter.
Though 'S WONDERFUL will remain the most sultry fore track after all listenings, with CRY ME A RIVER and I GET ALONG WITHOUT YOU VERY WELL both serve up well deep emotional vocal approach, which is something unique of the sonorous Canadian jazz pianist/songstress.
However songs like BESAME MUCHO and the title track THE LOOK OF LOVE are apparently letting down, completely not creative but rather sort of a cliché sampling in popular jazz business. Worst, the latter made me skip past the torturing MAYBE YOU'LL BE THERE at the end in most of my listenings. In delight the lusciously moody DANCING IN THE DARK does earn some credits, the extended beats arrangement would actually replay in my remote mind afterwards.
I'm quickly looking forward to better years in Diana Krall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music That Touch You Feb. 1 2004
By FePe
Format:Audio CD
True jazz lovers argue that Krall only has reached such a high popularity, as she indeed has, thanks to a shrewd marketing. That argument could be used just as effectively on singers like Norah Jones. As for Krall, she has a soft and sexy voice that appeals to many mainstream listeners who aren't concerned so much about jazz and how she plays the piano.
The marketing people behind Diana Krall's music is of course tempted to polish and popularize the music as much as possible. As is seen at once when looking on the cover of _The Look Of Love_, this is what they have done. The album begins with S'Wonderful played with bossa nova rhytms and a laid back vocal. The whole album is actually very much inspired by bossa nova, which provides a romantic atmosphere - again suiting Krall's looks and voice and the many listeners.
On Krall's first albums, _Stepping Out_, _Only Trust Your Heart_, and _All For You_, the romantic atmosphere is somewhat missing. The marketing wasn't so much aware of her commercial oppertunities that they regulated her own sound. The albums as a result sound more raw, resulting in more piano from Krall and more jazz-like compositions and atmosphere. What i miss, though, when hearing her earlier work, is exactly what _The Look Of Love_ has to offer: the richness of the sound, the polished sound quality, the not so jazz-like songs etc. The intro on I Get Along Without You Very Well for instance, is beautiful and heartbreaking. So is all other songs on the album. I understand people's objections to Krall's music, but at the same time I feel that the music is gripping, moving, meaningful and whatever words there is to express good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing in Surround Jan. 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's hard not to be totally engrossed (no, not grossed out) when Diana's smooth voice tackles on the standards with a charm and style that have to be experienced to be appreciated. The technical quality is more than up to the challenge of these fine songs and Diana's treatment of them. The album opens with one of the best renditions of "S'Wonderful" I've ever heard. "I Remember You" was superb, as is the title track. Made me want to write "Love Letters" to her. Stunning! I used the DVD-Audio disc for this review. If you haven't experienced what this format can do for music, run-don't walk- to your nearest stereo shop and have a listen. If you have a DVD player, you can listen in Dolby Digital. The sound, although not up to the true DVD-Audio quality, is still amazing. Al Schmitt did a truly outstanding job on the surround mix. The stereo version, in high resolution 24-bit, 96kHz digital, is also quite wonderful, but it's the surround version that makes you feel like you're in a small, smoky jazz club. You must hear this in surround!
