Product Description

Product Description

Special Edition of Krall's Ode to Brazil with an Extra Disc of Goodies: Charmed Life, but Not for Me, I Love Being Here with You, Maybe You'll Be There, and the Enhanced Video of the Look of Love.


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

The sound engineer who recorded should have a Grammy. It is the most perfect and impressive recording I know of. This disc will make you, and anyone who hears it fall in love with Hi-Fi again

On top of this, Diana's voice and the remarkable talent of the music ensemble who recorded this, including Diana's own awsome piano makes this an audio delight few can resist
Two friends of mine have gotten SACD-capable device and purchased this disc after hearing it play in my living-room. It's just that good..

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.

I have all of Ms. Krall's superb recordings but I believe TLOL outshines everything she did before.
I've listened to the album probably 100 times in the last eight months. It's heady, mood-altering music. At the end of a long, maybe rotten, day, the opening notes of "S' Wonderful" sink in like that first sip of scotch. Krall's haughty cover of "Cry Me a River" makes Julie London sound like Julie Andrews. I've loved the London version since I was a teen but I bought "A Touch of Class" just to compare and it's true. At times, I wish Spanish were my native tongue so I could appreciate what must be a sexy Canadian-accented "Besame Mucho." (Remember how cool Astrud Gilberto sounded on "The Girl from Ipanema?")
Matters of taste aside, here are some facts to consider before purchasing this album:
*Jazz Twits: if your thing is listening to "risky," "offensive" treatments and other silliness, this CD won't look good in your collection. It's for entertainment purposes only.
*The ten tracks do have similar arrangements but the melodies are all distinct. Sameness, per se, is not bad. Check out "The Intimate Ella" for an example of 13 identical arrangements.
*The orchestra does not drown out the singer, reviews to the contrary. Krall's voice is characteristically so clear and prominent that you can hear intimate vocal sounds. (The production won Al Schmitt a Grammy for engineering.)
*Soothing, down-tempo bosas may not be for all the people, all the time. Reasonable people understand this and move on. Personally, I wish this had been a two-volume set.

Produced by Tommy Lipuma with orchestral arrangements by Claus Ogerman this is Diana Krall's finest work. In the hands of these three all ten of these familiar standards are new and fresh. This is the kind of work Sinatra used to do with the lush arrangements of Nelson Riddle or Gordon Jenkins. Her luciously husky voice backed by Ogerman's arrangements are a win-win. The last minute of Besame Mucho and the opening arrangements of Dancing in the Dark and I'll Remember You are pure slices of heaven. Krall's voice is at it's soulful best on Cry Me a River and Maybe You'll Be There. This Cd stands apart from Krall's other efforts due to the beautiful orchestal arrangements of Ogerman and the concious effort of both Diana Krall and her long time producer Tommy Lipuma to create a work of restrained artistic beauty.
They have succeeded. The first listening of this CD will be a subtle revelation of a great artist finding her "voice". The Jazz is light and restrained. The result is a CD that you fall in love with a little more each time you hear it. This is something special musically and is not to be missed. Like the first cut says, S'wonderful!

Folks, I love Diana as much as the next fan. Her past work is true genius, with her vocal skills and musicianship truly making her unique among jazz singers, especially young and pretty ones. Like most of the reviewers, I do hope that Diana will again record a "basic" jazz album in the future in which she is more of an integral part of the music, taking more "risks" vocally as well as on the piano. BUT...
...this does NOT mean that this album should be avoided, unless you just simply hate strings! It is mellow, smooth jazz as you might hear in the 1950's - 1960's, with a torchy quality but short of being true torch. Diana's vocals are restrained, but always pleasant and distinctive (I love the way she says the word "paradise" in "S'Wonderful"); her piano playing is relegated to a few solos, while the orchestration is ever-present in the music. I do not agree that the orchestration is screechy, nor is it ever overbearing. If you think of Natalie Cole's "Unforgettable" album, you've got the right idea. Like that album, all of the cuts on "The Look of Love" are winners, with the string arrangements tastefully executed on each track.
This album would be worth 5 stars in any other case; but because we all expect more from Ms. Krall, I'm giving it 4. As such, it deserves a place in anyone's collection who appreciates quiet, yet intricate and sophisticated music. You owe it to yourself!
