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.

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.
For her new release, WALLFLOWER, Diana interprets classic pop songs from the '60s, '70s, and '80s. They include the title track, a Bob Dylan composition; The Eagles' "Desperado" and "I Can't Tell You Why"; The Carpenters' "Superstar"; Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again (Naturally)," a duet with Michael Bublé; Randy Newman's "Feels Like Home," a duet with Bryan Adams; Jim Croce's "Operator (That's Not The Way It Feels)"; Elton John's "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word"; The Mamas & the Papas' "California Dreamin'"; 10cc's "I'm Not In Love"; Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over"; and an unreleased Paul McCartney song, left over from the Kisses on the Bottom sessions, "If I Take You Home Tonight.Read more ›
