2.0 out of 5 stars Great music...worst Krall disc to buy January 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Let me first say how much the new practice of jazz/pop stars irks me. They hold off a few tracks from an album, which only get released on import versions costing three times as much, or greatest hits CDs. This Krall offering contains 3 previously unreleased tracks, only available here...perfect to get those who already own everything to buy this disc, just for 3 songs. Anyway, on to the actual review.

Typically, greatest hits compilations are designed for the consumer who wants to get the biggest songs from a particular artist. And that scheme works for most rock/pop artists (Elvis, Rolling Stones, etc). But in the case of Diana Krall, she doesn't really HAVE hits. The majority of her recorded output is old standards from the world of classic pop vocals & jazz, spanning the 1920's-1960's. Most of those already were huge hits, regardless of the performer. So, it seems that a greatest hits album for her is sort of a silly point.

Since buying this disc would give you a sampling of her most recent albums (only the Verve albums, by the way...not her early albums), it would give you a sampling of many styles and arrangements. If you are looking for a hodge-podge of Krall, with no theme or style of its own, then this is definitely the disc for you. However, if you are just getting into Diana Krall, and only want to buy one disc, a better option would be to decide what you like about her music, and get one of her original albums. You don't need to buy every one. Even if you only get one CD, any of her albums will find her singing big hits with her unique vocal style. One of her original albums will set the mood much better than any "hits" album. She sings on all albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fine & Varied Compilation. October 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This collection plays like a cool breeze breaking up a steamy Summer day. All the tunes feature the strong vocals of Ms Krall, & her excellent Piano playing. She has a subtle music savvy that oozes sex appeal. This set of songs goes from 1996's "All For You, to 2006's From This Moment On." There are spunky mumbers, direct jazz jams, sensuality, & improvised romantic journeys. From her eleven albums, the string based hits are well represented.

But oddly, her singer-songwriter tunes are left out. There are a few unreleased tracks. A yearning "Only The Lonely," a cruising "You Go To My head," & "The Heart Of Saturday Night." "Lets Fall In Love," with its fine guitar intro & the Bacharach cover "The Look Of Love," are here to be played over & over by anyone who needs a mood enhancer. throughout this collection her precision timing & her interpretive voice made for a great weekend of listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really classy collection September 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
(4 & 1/2 stars) This new Diana Krall best-of CD does what you would hope any best-of would do. That is, it plays like a near-perfect collection of songs where just about every cut entertains at a high level. The songs are sequenced very well, with up-tempo numbers mixed in to spice up the slower and more romantic music. So you get to hear "Let's Fall In Love," with its fabulous guitar-and-vocal intro (Russell Malone (Playground) on guitar) leading right into "The Look of Love," a great Bacharach cover. And so on. All feature the ultracool and exquisite vocals of Ms Krall, and her piano playing's not too bad either. The real highlights for her fans are the three previously unreleased tracks, songs from the sessions for two of her previous albums. Each of them is good enough to belong on this best-of (a fairly rare thing for a hits collection). I particularly enjoyed "You Go To My Head," which has both a wonderful orchestral arrangement by Claus Ogerman AND some tasty piano lines from Diana. This album will make a great christmas gift for the jazz fan on your list. I kind of wish I had bought the deluxe edition with DVD The Very Best of Diana Krall, but this music is great anyway.

PS - I wanted to title this review with a pun on the lady's last name, such as "Krall, Don't Run" or "Pub Krall," but those wouldn't have made sense, right?

5.0 out of 5 stars Smokingly Sultry September 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
While Diana Krall is not the apex of jazz vocalist when it comes to the instrument of her voice, (that would be Diane Schuur) she makes up for it by oozing sex appeal onto every note. For that... She is unbeatable.

This is a great collection for someone like me who really likes Ms. Krall's music but isn't ready to go buy the whole catalogue of her work, as it has the songs I am most familiar with, and thereby my favorites.

Great CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD is great! September 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Great live-in-studio stuff --- plus a couple of vids --- and a couple of live cuts.
"Temptation" is tremendous.

(Anybody else's DVD have audio static in it during "Temptation"...?)

4.0 out of 5 stars The VERY best of Diana Krall September 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I generally have a good feeling about a "very best" or "greatest hits" collection, and a Diana Krall collection is quite welcome in my music library. Of course, the "very best" of anyone's work is subjective and this is missing some of her early work from "All For You"("Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" would have been a good fit), and the outtakes that represent her "new songs" are satisfactory. "Temptation" would also have been a good choice. Overall, 4 stars. And pick up the version with the DVD included. And get "Live In Paris" in any version!
