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.

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars CUDDLE BY THE FIRESIDE CD Oct. 5 2001
By MOVIE MAVEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I usually will not add my review if a CD or book or video has already lots of reviews. I mean: what is left to say?
I felt, however, after reading about 20 reviews of Diana Krall's new THE LOOK OF LOVE that I wanted to write what is obviously a minority point of view. I LOVED this album. It reminded me of the Frank Sinatra "theme" albums like "Only The Lonely" where all the songs on the disc were of one mood. Here is Krall singing one gorgeous love song after another, accompanying herself, as always, on the piano with a small jazz combo and backed by a studio orchestra and the London Symphony. The orchestrations are lush, the sound on the CD is terrific and Krall is singing like I've never heard her sing. Every number is tops and done in Krall's signature throaty, sexy, husky style.
I especially enjoyed Schwartz and Dietz's "Dancing in the Dark" which is, in my opinion, one of the finest pop songs of all time and which cannot be allowed to be forgotten. Since the horrors of September 11, alot of songs with first rate lyrics take on all new meanings and here is a song which says, "We're waltzing in the wonder of why we're here/Time hurries by/We're here and gone."
This is a cuddle by the fireside with someone you love album. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

3.0 out of 5 stars Krall Follows Nat King Cole Into "Homogenized Pop Mode" Oct. 12 2001
By Wade Souza - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been a Krall fan since '93 when a Canadian friend sent me a tape of her first release. As a jazz guitarist and fan of jazz piano and vocals I loved her from the start..putting her in the league of early Nat Cole,Shirley Horn, Carmen Mcrae and Sarah Vaughn. While she wasnt a truly great singer....her voice really worked because of her phrasing, emotional feel, swing and the swinging piano she played extremely well. When I finally saw what she looked like, I knew she could be marketed to a very broad audience (I'm also a marketing consultant and former music executive). I only hoped she would NOT succumb to the same fates as Nat Cole, Wes Montgomery and George Benson, fine jazzers who became so marginalized by the music industry they became essentially pop musicians, and in my view lost the feel that made them stand out initially.
All that said, this is what Diana Krall has been pushed towards on this disc. It started somewhat on her last outing but seems to be virtually complete with this one. Sad thing is she sounds like she knows it..at least subconsciously. Her performance is often lacking in emotion, depth and her piano is virtually invisible. The accompaniment is superb from a pop perspective but boring from a jazz perspective...the instrumental performances seem to be deliberately mainstream....her guitarists especially lack the jazz feel of the past even though one was on her early records. The solid jazz feel of Peter Bernstein and early Russell Malone were solid secondary instruments to Kralls piano....not true here.
Bottom line....this is an ok pop disc and NOT a jazz disc at all. Its only a so-so Diana Krall CD and misrepresents her real abilities. I have seen her live 3x and she is great, funny, plays a hell of a piano and can sing with the best jazz singers..but this disc doesnt do it.I think its a loss to jazz lovers but also to music lovers as her performance suffers in this context.....she doesnt sound like she is sining from the heart....and she has the heart of a true jazz musician.
Krall is one of the few jazzers who can make a jazz record and have it really sell...ie. make a real living from it. This is a real issue for her and most jazz players and the true economics behind the push to pop from her record company...its also the art of music being subordinated to the "product" of commerce.
Maybe her next release should be a live trio or quartet date from a small intimate club....she probably doesnt play that way much anymore but it is where she shines. Maybe a charity date with a select audience....taped for later release?

4.0 out of 5 stars Give "The Look of Love" a Chance! Oct. 12 2001
By Kenneth M. Gelwasser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Over the past few years I have become a big fan of Diana Krall.She is both a tremendously talented jazz vocalist and pianist.In the past I have seen her numerous times in concert and have seen her perform much of her latest material.Yet, I was really surprised by the style and sound of her new CD, "The Look of Love".If you were looking to hear a sound alike sequel to her grammy winning, best selling album, "When I Look Into Your Eyes", you are in for a very big shock.Gone is the small band sound with Diana's jazz piano playing out front in the mix.Instead Diana treats us to a very subdued, vocals album which is heavily orchestrated, with many of the songs given a bossa nova touch. It greatly sounds like Diana is emmulating the Sinatra concept albums of the late fifties and early sixties.In fact when I first heard this album, the first thing that came to mind was the classic album, "Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim". When I later looked at the credits of these two albums, I found out that they were both arranged and conducted by the same person, Claus Ogerman.I have to admit, that this CD threw me for a curve, when I first heard it. This album sounds like nothing she's done before.It took repeated listenings for this new sound to grow on me... but it did! It is like a fine wine that you need to acquire a taste for. Highlights include a wonderful, "S'Wonderful" and a fantastically, sexy version of "Cry Me A River".My only real complaints with this album is that the orchestration is a little heavy handed and I wish I could have heard more of Diana's piano. Still, it's a good CD, which I would recommend you give a chance!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sound Of Love... Sept. 18 2001
By J. Lund - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Sides will perhaps be taken as to whether or not THE LOOK OF LOVE is a step forward for Diana Krall, since it does veer in style from the expected. Not to marginalize her previous albums, but I consider this CD to be a major leap forward for an already impressive talent. Note the following: 1) Diana is accompianed by an orchestra here, rather than a small jazz combo (although of course Diana still contributes piano solos). 2) Those who liked some of the finger-snapping up-tempo tunes she has recorded in the past should prepare themselves--that isn't the mood she is visiting this time around. 3) The music generally falls within the spirit or the letter of bossa nova, and the expected degree of subtlety in this genre is maintained from the album's beginning to finish.
The tone of the album isn't somber, but it does deal with adult emotions, specifically the ups and downs of love...and as anyone who is familiar with such bittersweet gems as I GET ALONG... can attest, the latter can be particularly poignant when the singer channels such tunes' multi-layers of heartfelt emotion effectively, as Diana does here. Throughout, Diana's voice is a flawless gem, not so much technically--although I have no complaints regarding that--as in her power to communicate from the soul to a degree that I find approaches that of the best 1950s-vintage Frank Sinatra concept albums. As did Sinatra, Diana often sings barely above a whisper, but at appropriate times raises her singing voice for dramatic effect. Hopefully such a departure from previous CDs is an indication that Diana isn't going to pander to the change-resistant faction of her fandom, but rather that she will risk her popularity by exploring whatever music that she is inspired to tackle at a given point in her career. Who says a traditionalist can't think like a progressive?

3.0 out of 5 stars The Look of Love and the sound of whaaattttt? Oct. 2 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have four of Diana Krall's albums and thought her "When I look in your eyes" was MORE than deserving of a Grammy win. A truely astonishing singer, Krall ranks way up there. Butttttt, I was disappointed in this CD. That is not to say this is a CD with no redeeming music - it is simply inferior to her previous CD. I found three things on this CD especially disappointing: One, virtually all of the songs are melancholy - how they chose to load this with so much sadness is beyond me. If you're even close to having a bad day, don't put this baby on - you'll end up tossing yourself through the window. Second, her rendition of Besame Mucho clearly sounds like an American TRYING to sing a latin song . . .. it loses something to hear an American singing in Spanish. Third, Krall has some superior muscians - outstanding guitarists, bassists, keyboards, drums . . . To add a symphony loses that intimate jazz sound. A good CD worth getting but be prepared to continue giving more air time to her previous CD.
