Product Description

Limited edition pressing of the 2009 album from the Jazz/Pop vocalist and pianist including two bonus tracks. Diana Krall's 12th album, Quiet Nights, is an intimate recording of ballads and Bossa Novas from the team that brought you her best-selling Grammy-Award-winning CD The Look of Love. Accompanied by her quartet and orchestra, Diana turns her sensual vocals and consummate piano skills to 'The Boy From Ipanema', 'Walk on By' and other classic tunes. Quiet Nights is initially available as a limited edition CD including two bonus tracks: her stunning rendition of the Bee Gee's 'How Can You Mend A Broken Heart' and the standard 'Every Time We Say Goodbye'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Diana Krall Too Quiet Oct. 6 2009
By Aileen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was rather disappointed in this CD. I LOVE Diana Krall and have most of her CDs and have seen her in concert numerous time. I don't feel this CD is up to her usual standards. Perhaps it's because it's not jazz, but I found the songs needed a bit more umph to them. They all dragged on as if she was sad and morose with every tune. She needed to pick the tempo up on most of them. Don't get me wrong, I love the songs, just no Diana singing them. Hopefully her next CD will be better.

Fairly mainstream, middle of the road, outing by Ms. Krall. Well sung, played and produced for sure... but lacking something vital most of the time - perhaps a sense of risk and sponteneity that jazz fans look for...

Fans, and those with "adult-contempory" tastes will eat this up, but actual jazz fans may be a bit disappointed...

I hope Ms. Krall returns to more edgy stuff at some point, but the $$ may entice her to remain on this course... a slightly more sophisticated Michael Buble...

Cheers

4.0 out of 5 stars The iconic diva returns with a mixed bag. Aug. 31 2009
By ST
Format:Audio CD
"Quiet Nights" is Diana Krall's twelfth album, which marks her first work with the 79 year-old legendary arranger Claus Ogerman (Frank Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim) since 2002's "Live in Paris", and her first studio work with Ogerman since 2001's "The Look of Love".

She may have started out as a jazz pianist/vocalist but these days Diana Krall seems to have ditched any semblance of swing in favour of sickly string arrangements.

Her voice is lush and exquisite but she overdoes the breathiness - to the point that one wonders if a ventilator is required - and sticks too much to indistinguishable, slow bossa novas and ballads.

The result is a florid and bland album that washes over the listener.
My favourite tracks are : "Too Marvelous For Words", "Walk On By", and "So Nice".
The album reaches # 1 of Billboard Top Jazz Albums. Issue date 2009-04-18

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame July 31 2009
Format:Audio CD
Oh well. Diana Krall's Karaoke of the Astrud Gilberto renditions are a "tragic joke" indeed (pun indented).
Diana's fatigued, bedroom voice does not cut it this time and her attempts at singing in Portuguese ("Este Seu Olhar") are even lamer, especially for anyone who is familiar with the lushness and sensual nature of the language.

It almost feels like her financial adviser told here it is a good idea to do this record.

Sorry to be sarcastic. I am not a Diana Krall hater (I thought "Love Scenes" was great) but this record is totally not her forte.

Just my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A smooth and lovely album June 17 2009
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Those who are not particularly fond of Diana Krall say that her albums follow a predictable path, and that she sounds too distant from the material she sings. While "Quiet Nights" will certainly not change the minds of her detractors, it will most definitely please her many fans; in fact, it's her best album since the playful "The girl in the other room". Diana has recorded thirteen evergreens, most of them culled from the American songbook of standards, performed with her trademark sultry vocals and unique piano playing style. The mood is reminiscent of past albums such as "The Look of Love": it's jazzy bossa-nova, nicely enhanced with delicate orchestral arrangements that complement the songs without overtaking them. Her renditions of "Where or when", "How can you mend a broken heart", "The boy from Ipanema", "Every time we say goodbye", the title track and "Walk on by" are the highlights here, but there are no weak moments on this album. Those who are already fans can buy this album with confidence; those who are intrigued by this artist and would like to know more about her, will find a great place to start with this CD.
