Editorial Reviews

The Look of Love doesn't tamper with Diana Krall's ongoing success, continuing the emphasis on romantic ballads and embracing them with lush string arrangements. At the core, of course, is Krall's voice. She's developing into one of the great torch singers, with an approach that's both direct and subtly nuanced, true to the song and yet deeply personal. There's a combination of restraint and drama here, as Krall ranges from the confident to the wistful, from loss to playful insinuation, as each song requires. "Cry Me a River" is bittersweet triumph, while "Love Letters" and "Maybe You'll Be There" maintain the most tenuous emotional hold, at once fragile and resilient. "Besame Mucho" and "Dancing in the Dark" are sultry romances wafted on light Latin beats. The songs develop their intimacy in the setting of Krall's quartet, which usually includes bassist Christian McBride and drummer Peter Erskine and several fine guitarists, most frequently Russell Malone. They're a superb complement to her voice and piano, and the close communication carries through the depth and sheen added by Claus Ogerman's rich orchestrations. --Stuart Broomer

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.

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 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..

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!

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?
