18 Songs, 1 Hour 13 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Diana Krall is well established as an interpreter of standards. For her 11th studio album, vocalist/pianist and Nanaimo native goes back to the pre-standards era, taking on the 78 RPM records she heard at home growing up in Nanaimo, British Columbia. Glad Rag Doll mostly features songs from the '20s, including the melancholy title track from 1928. It marks Krall's first collaboration with famed producer T Bone Burnett (O Brother Where Art Thou?, Roy Orbison), who worked with her husband, Elvis Costello, in the mid- to late ‘80s. Burnett brought along some of his regular crew, including guitar wizard Marc Ribot and the understated drummer Jay Belarose, for an album that showcases a markedly different yet instantly recognizable aspect of Krall’s artistry.
