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'.

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

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...
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.
The music overpowers. Her voice is faint and in the background.
The whole effect is cheap sounding.
à écouter en amoureux ou un souper en tête à tête.

As promised in the title this is the perfect background music for quiet nights. Diana delivers with heart and soul to make this an excellent choice for easy listening.Published on Sept. 8 2010 by D. Walsh
