The first time I saw Diana was when I was watching Jazz Central on BET a few years ago, and I was truly impressed, but I never really tried to find out anything more about her, until this year. I was searching on the Internet and I found her rendition of "Christmas time is here". I was totally blown away, and I had to find more.
From the very first song, "Let's face the music and dance", with its steamy bossa nova, smokey delivery from Diana, and smooth string accompaniment, it's really hard to put this album down. All of the arrangements are extremely well done, and Diana brings out all of the emotions of each song like she's lived through them all. Especially the title track. I couldn't stop listening to it. I just hit the replay button, and fell into the lush sounds of the strings, the warm guitar, while I fell in love with Diana's soothing, comforting voice. VERY few albums have ever done that to me before, and I can't wait for her next effort so she can do it to me again.
Now I can understand that people are mad that Diana doesn't show off her great piano chops, and those who claim that she's selling out, but I have to totally disagree. Diana doesn't have to go the route of so many artists and use their albums to display how great they are; she just wants the music to show for itself. As for the selling out thing, she is more popular, yes.Read more ›
Even then, I didn't come in entirely unprepared. After hearing about the third random rave-review of her music, and especially her piano-playing, I finally had to sample her music for myself.
My first sampling was 'Love Scenes', which certainly didn't disappoint. I could definitely see her husky-voiced, character-laden appeal. Her covers of many traditional hits (Porter, etc.) are certainly very appealing, and unique enough to warrant all the claims of Krall's being one of the biggest, truly new things to happen to contemporary jazz music.
But it was after I bought 'When I Look Into Your Eyes' that I really found out what all these claims about Diana Krall's 'specialness' meant. Although I am a huge music fan with a very wide range of tastes based on my mood, it is seldom that a piece of music absolutely takes me away. Well, when I first heard the title track, 'When I Look Into Your Eyes', I actually stopped what I was doing, and just *listened*. What a beautiful, sad song. Funny, a few days later I casually listened to the CD again from the beginning, and the same thing happened AGAIN! I suddenly dropped what I was doing, and just sat and listened because I was almost incapable of doing otherwise. The beauty of that song is indescribable. It makes so much of pop-music seem so utterly trivial in comparison. The depth of feeling, plus the expression in her voice, is so heart-stirring as to be almost painful.
I can't say that I come across such emotionally powerful music very often. Only select classical music can even come close to the effect that Diana Krall's voice has on me. She is truly wonderful and we are lucky to be able to listen to her.
