5.0 out of 5 stars "Love being here with Diana Krall", December 16, 2002
This review is from: Live in Paris (Audio CD)
The opening tune is a Peggy Lee/William Schluger composition called "I LOVE BEING HERE WITH YOU", featuring some great vocalizing by Krall and tickling the ivory's that only she can, her back up is Anthony Wilson (guitar), John Clayton (bass) and Jeff Hamilton (drums) shades of the King Cole Trio come to mind. Smooth sounds of "LET'S FALL IN LOVE", a classic standard by Harold Arlen/Ted Koehler sends the listener into the realm of pure ecstasy. Mesmerizing and tranquil vibes within an original style in this Burt Bacharach/Hal David "THE LOOK OF LOVE", sends a message of sensual feelings that Krall brings to the surface ~ must make mention this sounds better "Live", something in Krall's voice gives this more substance.
Some stand outs ~ "I'VE GOT YOU UNDER MY SKIN", nothing can top this Cole Porter selection that only two people I know give this their own signature, of course Frank Sinatra is the first and now Diana Krall comes to the forefront, not bad company to be in---beautiful arrangement by Alan Broadbent music director, conductor of the Orchestre Symphonique Europeen, this song really gets under your skin, gotta love it. Some great jazz piano on "DEVIL MAY CARE", Krall and her group are really having a swinging good time, and it shows. One of my all-time favorite songs is "MAYBE YOU'LL BE THERE", songwriters Rube Bloom/Sammhy Gallop hit the mark with words and music, Diana takes it to a higher level with this intimate arrangement.
My highlight pick is "A CASE OF YOU", love this song, love Joni Mitchell (artist/composer) and Love Diana Krall with the lyrics pouring from her soul, this song especially shows what a terrific singer she is. Another highlight has to be "JUST THE WAY YOU ARE", the never to be forgotten Billy Joel hit, Krall and her style take over, she's right at home with this one. If you're not a fan by this time, there is no hope for you. This album is a keeper for the jazz-buff in all of us, take it from me this is well worth the money and then some.
Total Time 70:11 on 12 Tracks ~ Verve 440-065-109-2 ~ (2002)
