Sunday Jazz – Diana Krall

I have been a big admirer of Diana Krall since 1996 when I bought her then new album “All For You: A Dedication To The Nat King Cole Trio”

all-for-you

My favourite song she plays is “Peel Me A Grape” which featured on her “Love Scenes” album released in 1997.

Her cover version of Joni Mitchell’s ” A Case Of You” from her 2002 live album “A Night In Paris” re-kindled by admiration for the music of Joni Mitchell

Diana Krall first new CD in nearly three years – Quiet Nights, is to be released on March 31, it is Krall’s first CD of new material in three years.
Krall, known for her crossover appeal had twin sons with husband Elvis Costello in 2006; they turned 2 Dec. 6. The 10 songs include ballads, three recordings of songs by bossa nova legend Antonio Carlos Jobim, and standards such as “Walk On By” by Burt Bacharach.
A two-time Grammy winner, Krall is surrounded by familiar faces on “Quiet Nights.” In addition to her longtime quartet and producer Tommy LiPuma, who worked with her on nine previous recordings, arranger Claus Ogerman returns. He last worked with Krall on her 2001 record “The Look of Love.” Ogerman was the arranger on many of bossa nova’s first wave of recordings in the 1960s, working with Jobim, Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz and Bill Evans. Ogerman came out of semiretirement to once again work with Krall. LiPuma, who first worked with Krall in 1994, said the record shows how she has matured as a singer.
In addition to finishing “Quiet Nights,” Krall is producing a new Barbra Streisand record that is slated to be completed in January and released sometime in 2009. Krall intends to tour North America in April following the release of “Quiet Nights.”
Krall’s previous album release was The Very Best of Diana Krall (her eleventh) and it was released in 2007. In the U.S. the CD debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart at number 19.

    • True, but to be fair she has been busy producing babies recently rather than albums!
