Album Review

Recorded "live" at the Paris Olympia, Live in Paris offers listeners Diana Krall's understanding of the musical techniques of composition, piano, and vocal improvisation on 12 songs from the Great American Songbooks of Cole Porter,Harold Arlen, George and Ira Gershwin, and contemporary artists Joni Mitchell and Billy Joel. Accompanied by the award-winning Anthony Wilson on guitar, John Pisano on acoustic guitar, John Clayton on bass, Jeff Hamilton on drums, and Paulinho Da Costa on percussion as well as the Orchestra Symphonies European on "Let's Fall in Love" and "I've Got You Under My Skin," the lovely vocalist heightens your listening pleasures with distinctive phrasings and tangible pathways to inside the creative imagination by getting inside harmony, the changes, and melodic structures. On Joel's "Just the Way You Are," Krall is accompanied by Christian McBride on bass, Michael Brecker on tenor saxophone, Lewis Nash on drums, and Wilson on guitar, among others. This song also resides on the soundtrack to the film The Guru and is probably one of the best ballads on the set due to the great solo from Brecker. His powerful but sensitive playing adds the ultimate expression and approach to the melody — one with attitudinal preparation, which is always necessary for a song that has such familiarity and association with another musician. For those who may not have heard Krall perform "live," this recording will give you a firsthand account of the ambience and excitement of a musical evening with her.

The Definitive Diana Krall

LIve in Paris is the album I recommend if I want to introduce someone to Diana. This is real jazz - the opening track, the straightahead and swinging I Love Being Here with You, leaves no doubt that Diana has the piano and vocal chops of a seasoned master. This album has it all - a constantly accelerating version of Devil May Care which will leave you breathless, and an amazing ballad rendition of I've Got You Under May Skin. Her very personal interpretations of a recent standard - The Look of Love - and an established standard - Fly Me to the Moon - prove that Diana is an immensely talented artist who is clearly at the top of her game. Treat yourself to all her albums, but if you have to choose one, this is it.

A charge in the air

I had the good fortune to hear this concert in person at the Olympia in Paris. It was understood that Diana had a lifetime dream to perform at this great venue. She was marvelous in every way as was her quartet. There seemed to be a charge in the air for the entire night's performance. We were sitting just a few rows from the stage and I really was taken with Diana's skill and verve on the piano. If Nat King Cole is one of her inspirations, she listened well! This was an exciting concert in every respect. I recommend it highly.

A must have......

Diana Krall's talent is overwhelming. She's the ultimate in jazz. You won't be sorry you bought this. You will be missing out if you don't!

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

With her pre-bop piano style, cool but sensual singing, and fortuitously photogenic looks, Diana Krall took the jazz world by storm in the late '90s. By the turn of the century she was firmly established as one of the biggest sellers in jazz. Her 1996 album, All for You, was a Nat King Cole tribute that showed the singer/pianist's roots, and since then she has stayed fairly close to that tradition-minded mode, with wildly successful results. Krall got her musical education when she was growing up...
