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.

I absolutely love this album and her great, smoky sound. Lovely woman to see in concert (even though she seems a little shy it does not take away from her sound and good sense of humor).
I bought it this week and I woke up to the music out loud in my bedroom today thinking I wad in heaven. Her voice is crystal clear, sharp, warm and very acoustic like. The variety of songs includes over two or three decades of known hits. It is my new favorite cd. Buy it!
Apart from enjoying the elegant arrangements, economical but delicious piano, and of course Diana's understated tone and phrasing, this collection pinpoints some standards of tomorrow, and maybe that is the philosophical point. California Dreaming is reinterpreted and rearranged to sound timeless, and I've always heard it as a quintessentially 60s song until now. That take something special, and that is why we love Diana Krall and trust her taste in songs, songwriters and arrangers.
