Years after the 1990s, the decade will be remembered for the rise of pianist-vocalist Diana Krall. Simply put, this British Columbian-born artist is one of the most engaging musicians to emerge from the heap of scat-happy singers high on pyrotechnics, but short on poetry. Stamped with the imprimatur of the Nat King Cole trio and blessed by her apprenticeship with the late West Coast piano giant Jimmy Rowles, Krall simply sings songs the way they're supposed to be sung: with devotion to the lyric and with attention to the groove. This CD finds Krall in familiar company with compatriots Russell Malone (on guitar), bassist John Clayton, drummers Lewis Nash and Jeff Hamilton, and vibraphonist (and former Bill Evans associate) Larry Bunker--all supported by Johnny Mandel's svelte string arrangements. Krall and crew take Irving Berlin's chestnut "Let's Face the Music and Dance" and the Sinatra-signatured "I've Got You Under My Skin" south to Brazil via a sexy bossa nova. Malone's lush guitar accompaniment complements Krall's heartfelt delivery on "When I Look in Your Eyes", and Michael Franks's "Popsicle Toes" dances courtesy of Hamilton's drum work. "Devil May Care", "East of the Sun (and West of the Moon)", The Best Thing for You", and the stridish "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" groove with a minimum of waste, while Mandel's simpatico strings steal the show on "I'll String Along with You", "Pick Yourself Up", and "Do It Again". All of which further illuminate the cool fire from this fine gift from North of the Border. --Eugene Holley Jr.

With her sultry voice, great piano skills and a Grammy to add to her name, Diana Krall is the Modern-Day Queen of Jazz. She performs with elegance and a style that is so distinctively her very own. Her adeptness on the piano is very impressive. What makes her an extraordinary performer is her ability to sing and play at the same time, and excel in both. What a great talent! The credit also goes to Tommy LiPuma, Johnny Mandel, David Foster, Eddie Karam, Al Schmitt and all the equally talented jazz musicians: Russell Malone (guitar), John Clayton (bass), Jeff Hamilton (drums), Ben Wolfe (bass), Larry Bunker (vibes), Lewis Nash (drums), Pete Christlieb (sax), Alan Broadbent (piano - track #13), Chuck Berghoffer (bass). Congratulations for making this recording a tremendous success.

This CD covers a repertoire of unforgettable classic melodies by the most brilliant songwriters of yesterday and today such as, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Harry Warren/Al Dublin, and Ted Koehler/Harold Arlen. Likewise, Michael Franks and a budding songwriter Clint Eastwood, among many others.

My top favorite is "Let's Face The Music And Dance," which she delivers par excellence. With its Bossa Nova style and superb orchestration, it's the best interpretation I've ever heard. Other standouts are "I've Got You Under My Skin," "I'll String Along With You," "East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon)," "Let's Fall In Love," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "Pick Yourself Up," and of course "Popsicle Toes" (How can I not remember this song when I was a huge fan of Michael Franks in the eighties?) I have collected a number of his albums since "Art of Tea."

This CD is a treasure and the more you listen to it, the more enjoyable your listening experience will be.

OK, I admit it. I'm a fan of this incredible performer. Diana Krall's voice has been described as like honey laced with scotch whiskey. Her smooth vocals and piano stylings, along with the other members of her trio, make for some great listening. Many of the tracks on this disc are standards that have stood the test of time. Diana gives them a fresh spin. Listen to "Let's Face the Music and Dance" and see if you don't start singing along. She sails through Michael Franks's "Popsicle Toes" with the whimsy this song deserves. I could go on, but you just have to listen for yourself. The DVD-Audio version of this disc was used for this review. The ultra-wide dynamics, coupled with an excellent surround mix by Al Schmitt, make this a real treat. The stereo version of this album is also included, but the surround version envelops you in Diana's world. It simply must be heard to be appreciated. The only downside is that the hidden song, "Why Should I Care", appears only on the stereo version.

Quando le note critiche di un disco sono sostituite da suadenti immagini di una ragazzotta bionda, fotografata sulle spiagge coralline di Guadalupe, può sorgere il dubbio che la registrazione sia priva di spessore. Se poi la bionda in oggetto è la cantante stessa, allora anche i meno maliziosi penseranno ad un'interprete più bella che brava. In effetti, Diana Krall è molto carina, ma non saranno solo i tredici ritratti contenuti nel disco a fare la gioia dell'acquirente. Grazie anche brillante chitarra di Russell Malone (già fido collaboratore di Harry Connick jr), Diana interpreta con sicurezza un interessante repertorio di songs americani (Berlin, Gershwin, Porter), cui riesce a conferire atmosfere piuttosto originali. Con una voce dosata e sensuale, di per sè miracolosa se si considera il colore madreperlaceo della sua pelle. Perdonate l'eccesso di xenofilia ed il gusto per l'autocitazione, ma non posso che ricordare, a questo proposito, una vecchia frase di Arthur Cravan: "un bianco non vale nemmeno il cadavere di un negro".

Diana's previous collection of very romantic love songs had been so successful that the formula was repeated. However, there is nothing formulaic about the quality of this album, which is every bit as good as Love scenes.
Again, the songs were chosen from the Great American songbook. Many of the songs were originally American hits in the twenties and thirties, including Let's face the music and dance (Fred Astaire), Devil may care (Glenn Miller), Let's fall in love (Eddy Duchin), When I look in your eyes (Hunter Rodeheaver and Virginia Asher), I've got you under my skin (Ray Noble), I can't give you anything but love (Cliff Edwards, Ben Selvin and Johnny Hamp all had huge hits with it), I'll string along with you (Ted Fio Rito), East of the sun (Tom Coakley), Pick yourself up (Fred Astaire) and Do it again (Paul Whiteman).
Some of these songs, like Let's face the music and dance, were originally more up-tempo, but here they are slowed right down, making them sound fresh and exciting. The original artists are mostly unknown these days - only Glenn Miller and Fred Astaire remain widely recognisable - but Diana and others are doing an excellent job of keeping their music alive and relevant to a modern generation.

A friend's rave, a nice review in the local paper, and air play on the local smooth jazz station motivated me on this "impulse" purchase. Sadly, the shining reviews and serious and repeated play does not lift Krall's performance and production of this album above the hype.
Krall treaded dangerous grounds by going up against the giants who originally performed these standards. Unfortunately, in comparison, she doesn't bring anything new or better to the table. Her vocal competence is not challenged here. Indeed, Krall is technically proficient. Hints of Carmen McCrae waft about during play but what is lacking is the obvious emotion and distinction that made the originals so appealing. Some tracks are sterile of the oozing passions that have made standards standards.
And where is Nelson Riddle when you need him? The CD suffers from an underwhelming lack of orchestral production that, nearly on its own, lifted Linda Ronstadt's classic standards album to lofty heights. Only the final cut "Why Should I Care?", my favorite on the CD, makes an attempt at full-on orchestration that is so needed but missing from this collection.
Perhaps if Ms. Krall finds a good writer or even writes her own material and combines that with good arrangement and a big band, she could easily meet the hype that seems to surround her.
