5.0 out of 5 stars See the video at the beginning of True Crime October 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Diana Krall at the beginning of the movie True Crime. Her voice was arresting. Her interpretation so masterfully controlled. Her vocal quality so finely textured, it is hard to describe. It isn't that she uses great vocal or dynamic range. She might have range, but she doesn't show off. The word subtle isn't subtle enough to describe that voice. She's clearly of the minimalist, less is more school. Maybe like Diana Ross in Good Morning Heartache, or Lauren Wood in Fallen, or Joni Mitchell in Edith and the Kingpin. If she were a wine she would be a dry sherry, neither a heavy port nor a light chablis. If she were a dessert she would be a tiramisu, not completely untextured like a pudding, nor crunchy like a cobbler. You could call her voice silky, in the sense that real silk pulls at your hand, doesn't just glide by like satin. Closer to home, if she were an operatic soprano she would be a lyric, not a dramatic. My vocal coach said that singing is all in the mind. Then, you can hear her thinking. She thinks about and extracts meaning from each phrase.
It was a pleasant surprise to learn that Clint Eastwood did the music for Why Should I Care. It is a sultry bluesy tune, not demanding of range. But what Ms. Krall does to enhance its classic lines and to distinguish repeated phrases must be heard.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT the Clint Eastwood song . . . February 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The song on this CD is "I Should Care", not "Why Should I Care?", the Clint Eastwood song described in an earlier review. I just received it and it wasn't at all what I expected. This is the only complete song on the CD, and it was not the one I specifically ordered this for. It only has very short snippets of "The Look of Love" and "Cry Me a River. This is just a Borders Books sampler CD with poor sound quality. Ordered it "used", although it was actually an unopened sample CD, and didn't pay much, but with shipping, it was a lot more than it is worth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clint made my day - he wrote it! November 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I like his movies and that is how I got here. The movie, True Crime was ok as Eastwood movies go. I enjoyed it enough to buy a used copy of it. But what "made my day" was this song. As the credits rolled, a good movie became fantasmic! This subtle tune began to flow through my speakers and I found myself entranced! I searched the credit list for the song and there it was. Diana Krall. Who? I had never heard of her. I am not a real jazz fan or should I say I wasnt but that all changed when I bought a copy of the album with a bonus track... this song. As I listened and read hte liner notes, Written by Clint Eastwood... HUH? I was thrilled. It is a mainstay in my car cd collection. That is a place reserved for only the cds I play all the time. She sits with pride in the first cd sleeve. And she has a new fan. Thanks Clint for writing a fantastic song! 5 STARS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantabulous November 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Diana Krall when I watched "True Crimes". I have never heard a voice quite as stupendous as her's. I ran right out and bought two of her CD's and I listen to them all the time. I have always been a lover of jazz, but couldn't seem to find that artist that hit my soft spot. Diana does that for me. She has both snappy tunes and soft tunes for any mood you might be in. She is definetely a "Don't Miss" artist. I feel in love.

I fell in love with this song as soon as I heard it while watching a movie (I don't even remember the movie). I liked it so much that I stayed to read all of the movie's credits to write down the name of the artist and song, so I could buy it. I had heard about Diana Krall, but had never listened to any of her works. After hearing this song, I am definitely going to buy it and other CDs by her. I plan to buy "Why Do I Care" tonight. She is truly an "artist", not merely a singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi-lite of the movie September 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This song was enough to make my wife and I review the credits several times. We searched for some time to find this on an album/CD, finally we settled for the single.
We both thought this was an "old" song from the 1930s or 1940s (not later than 1955). Were we shocked to learn Clint Eastwood was one of the writers. The rendition by Diana was enough to get us hooked on her and her style. I wouldn't categorize as jazz, but rather the "Big Band" styles.
Absolutely top notch: singer, lyrics, orchestra and setting for the performance in the movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing October 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
To be quite honest, my opinion of Diana Krall varies from song to song. I saw her in concert, and there was something about her stage-presence that was off-putting. This recording though, is incredible. The melody was written by Clint Eastwood, who has written more than you realize, and is absolutely enchanting. The arrangement is breathtaking (I believe it's by the incomperable Lennie Niehaus) It's so good I'm singing it for a jazz performance!
