Very new ground for her and so different for her fans...don't expect
the usual jazz she does...but, it's more like a lounge sound to it,
and I have to admit that the quality of the recording and the personnel
that plays with her is top notch...very late night feel music to it...
nice audacity from her to kick the same old same old... recommended!

DIANA, YOU VAMP! ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CD. STRETCHING YOUR WINGS IS ALWAYS A GOOD THING. AFTER ALL, IF YOU DON'T TRY NEW THINGS HOW DO YOU KNOW JUST WHAT YOU CAN DO. I LOVE THE COVER ... DON'T LISTEN TO THOSE GOODY 2 SHOES TRYING TO SABATOGE YOU. DON'T WE ALL WISH WE COULD LOOK LIKE THIS AFTER HAVING KIDS. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. YOUR MUSIC IS EXCELLENT.

I like this album.new direction new feeling. she goes the blues/jazz side, like other great singers.lots of guitar and piano, deep voice that is good for the blues. don't think every song or album is going to jazz. Variety is the thing that makes her better .

This is a unique sounding album, that relies on a Louisiana Cajun sound. The guitar playing is very distinctive, as is the sound of the album. I only like three songs on the album. I'll bet that is one of Diana's poorest selling records despite the provocative cover art. I am a big DK fan especially as I reside in Vancouver, BC , her adopted home town. Not her best effort despite a very unique production sound. Better luck next time.

I just loved this CD. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. Many great tunes to dance in the kitchen to. I feel Diana has outdone herself and I would highly recommend this CD.

I liked this album. I liked what Krall has tried to do. Put on a disc and step back to the roaring 20's. Forget your typical jazz, the album is about a different style of music.
The problem I have is with the mastering of the vinyl. The sound is flat and muffled. Never does her voice project, it just blends in with the instruments. And the instruments never stand apart. One big mess of sound.

Maybe that's what she was going for, I don't know. I will play is record again because I like the music style but not because of the sound quality .

Let me begin by saying that I've been a huge, huge fan of Diana Krall for many years, so I was eagerly anticipating the release of this album and confidently went ahead and pre-ordered it. Once I heard it, I couldn't help but be overcome by disappointment despite the fact that I badly wanted to like it and listened to it over and over, hoping to hear what all the great reviews were about. My problem is this: The thing that I've always loved most about Diana, that set her work apart from everyone else, was her marvelous talent as a jazz pianist. Like everyone else, I also love her exquisite voice and the classy elegance of her persona. On this release, however, it seems that the goal was to rob her of that elegance and downplay her pianistic skill. Not that I don't appreciate the cover art...Diana plays the sultry, sexy role beautifully and I admit to quite enjoying the photos (like any other red-blooded North American guy!)...But the whole presentation seems to lack the sophistication that has always been Diana's stock in trade. Musically speaking, on a few of the cuts Diana's gorgeous voice is allowed to shine through, but on many of them she is all but drowned out in the mix by a clunky, ham-fisted accompaniment featuring none-too-subtle guitars, drums, and other vintage-sounding instruments; good for historical interest, perhaps, but long superseded by modern innovations (with good reason). What little piano playing we hear similarly lacks Diana's usual grace and wit, and sounds as though it was performed on an ancient, out-of-tune Legion Hall piano. I'm sorry, but it's hard for me to imagine that this is really how Diana herself would wish to present her talents to the world. And lest I be accused of not wanting to listen to anything but the great American songbook fare that Diana became famous for, let me say that my favourite album of hers to date has been The Girl in the Other Room, which featured some wonderful contemporary song-writing as well as some hip, innovative piano work. Instead, this latest offering seems regressive...almost analogous to Leonardo Da Vinci taking up cave wall painting. Oddly enough, I normally enjoy this style of music, in its place...It's just that Diana Krall is capable of so much more and her considerable talents seem wasted here. So I'm afraid I'm left frustrated, and rather saddened at what seems to be the demise of Diana Krall the extraordinary pianist. I do hope this is just a temporary experiment for Diana, which will play out in due course.

This recording is very different from the classic Diana Krall but it is delightful and brings back memories from older albums in a variety of styles. It even reminder me the early recording from Elvis Presley at Sam. A great Diana Krall.

I found when I first listened to it, I didn't know what to think. I put it aside, and let it be. I tried it again, and then again. This CD has morphed into one of my favorites, right up there with The Girl in the Other Room. A few songs don't work for me, but have fallen in love with the majority. If you don't like it, try it again. The woman is still amazing, and getting better and better every year.

as much as I love Diana Krall this one really did not do too much for me. But I'll keep trying.
