Editorial Reviews

Wallflower is a collection of songs from the late 60's to present day that inspired Krall in her early years. Produced by 16 time Grammy® Award winning producer David Foster, the album finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time.

On Wallflower, Diana Krall showcases her considerable gifts as a vocalist in a bold and beautiful way. Krall sings a set of songs that include familiar popular classics like The Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreaming" and the Eagles' "Desperado" favorite vintage songs by Krall's musical heroes Bob Dylan (he inspired the album's title track "Wallflower") and Elton John "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word". The album also features more recent gems like Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" and a wonderful new composition from Paul McCartney "If I Take You Home Tonight".

Diana Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time. Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist in the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling artists of her generation.

The new album marks Krall's first studio effort since 2012's Glad Rag Doll, produced by T Bone Burnett, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 1 on the Jazz Albums chart. Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, she has won five Grammy® Awards, eight Juno® Awards and has also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.

Miss Krall does her versions of mostly 70's and 80's soft rock gems. The good news is, fans of Diana Krall will love this CD/Album/MP3. And the other good news is that this release is on vinyl, and if it's anything like her other releases on vinyl and you have a nice system, this is pure ear candy from start to finish. Let's face it, Diana Krall could literally sing the phonebook and it would go platinum. A number of these covers not only work, but are all the way Krall: "California Dreamin';" "Superstar"; "I Can't Tell You Why;" "I''m Not In Love;" "Don't Dream it's Over." There is bad news here, though. Well, actually mixed news. If you're a Krall purist and a complete music fan, about half of these selections fall flat (hence 4 stars instead of 5). Let's face reality here, do we really need another version of "Desperado?" Really?!? However there is more good news - the remaining eight songs are trademark Krall. The top selections have a soaring and rich orchestral layer that pops every time. Dylan's "Wallflower" is a complete surprise which finds Miss Krall doing something she does best: reinventing a popular tune and making it her very own. Diana literally remakes four songs on this release and completely renews them ala Krall, making her versions equal to, if not better than the originals. Ultimately, Diana Krall has reinvented "Lounge Jazz" for 2015 and stamped it with her signature vocals and virtuoso piano skills. She surrounds herself with talented pros from top to bottom as usual (Did you see who produced this album?). Almost a classic. Worth the wait for most everyone who is familiar with her music.

I enjoy Diana's early jazz albums, but at least for the time being, she has chosen to go for the easy listening market. The only jazz track is a duet with Georgie Fame on a cover of Yeh yeh, which is not on the standard CD but is a bonus track on the deluxe edition. Although described as an Amazon deluxe edition, it is not exclusive to Amazon. I am familiar with most of the other tracks via the original versions and / or earlier covers.

Apart from Yeh yeh, I think the best track here is Alone again (Naturally), a duet with Michael Bublé. Originally a Gilbert O'Sullivan solo recording, it takes on a whole new perspective as a duet.

The title track is a hitherto obscure Bob Dylan song. It seems that his version has only been released so far on bootleg compilations, while not many cover versions have been recorded. Maybe Diana's cover will give the song wider attention.

Two Eagles covers are featured, Desperado probably being the better known, but I can't tell you why (from The long run) is certainly no obscurity.

I find this to be a very enjoyable album to listen to. It's certainly not a jazz album apart from one of the bonus tracks, but I enjoy easy listening music as well as other genres.

... ... and, unless something beyond my imagination comes along, I have just heard the best CD of 2015, and this is it. I have listened to Diana Krall for years and I have always liked her music and I still do. "Wallflower" is a collection of covers including songs from, among others, The Mamas and The Papas, The Eagles, Jim Croce, and The Beatles. All of the songs are vocally flawless, as anyone would expect from Diana Krall, and her wonderful contralto is appropriately accompanied by understated instrumentation. I have listened to the CD twice since it was delivered to my door and I expect to listen to it a dozen more times before the end of the week. It began being simply wonderful and will get better and better as time passes. These are songs to which you can listen carefully, take note of the lyrics, and clearly understand the states of mind of the songwriters and the vocal performer without having to work at it too hard and with high confidence that your own state of mind has briefly been transformed so as to be in accord with theirs. Wear a warm sweater when you listen to this record and listen in a well ventilated room because Diana Krall will simultaneously give you cold chills and take away your breath. "Wallflower" has joined Jamie O'Neal's"Eternal", Lynda Kay's "Dream My Darling", Martina McBride's "Timeless", Patty Loveless' "Sleepless Nights", and Shelby Lynne's "Just A Little Lovin" in my regular rotation along with The Marvelous Linda Ronstadt and The Incomparable Emmylou Harris. This is strong company and "Wallflower" belongs there, without doubt.

I have several of Diana's cds and play them often. They are the old ballads or standards which fit well into her style. This one just doesn't cut it, not a good choice for her range. Some are so slow it is hard to listen to. Better listen to it before you buy it, it is not the Diana Krall I have enjoyed for so long.

It is great to see Diana Krall back in the game and at the top of her form. I am not sure what all the discontent is about here in some of these reviews. After the Glad Rag Doll travesty, which I thought was the worst thing ever recorded and almost gave up on her, shes back and sounding better than ever. So I am suprised to be reading so many negative comments. Possibly some die hard jazz fans (I am one myself) are just wanting a new classic jazz album and nothing more no if's and's or but's,,,, but there is really plenty in Wallflower to rejoice about for fans old and new. The music is lush, her vocals have never sounded better, and the arrangements are very enjoyable as is the piano playing. You can tell David Foster has his stamp on this. These are soft and smoky, full and vibrant, moving and a little easy listening, a little jazz, a little pop, a couple duets, can't go wrong with Buble there. The music and songs don't really give in too much to any genre, its just a great easy listening collection that harkens back to some great songs and era's, while giving it a modern yet beautiful production. Enjoy Wallflower, can't wait to see her on tour when she comes to my area in April, but overall I think this album deserves 5 stars. Play it on a rainy night with a glass of wine, or over a nice dinner or just while reading a book in a blanket, next to a fire, or a spring day as the birds are singing and the clouds are rolling by, the soft breeze will pull you in to the music.
