On this collection of love songs, it's clear that Diana Krall is cool but very much in love with this music. She covers Irving Berlin's chestnut 'Let's Face the Music and Dance' and the Sinatra-signatured 'I've Got You Under My Skin' south to Brazil via a sexy bossa nova. The 2LP set is now on 180 gram vinyl.

The subtle textures of her singing come through clearly and the soundstage is wide with fair depth. The music is very well engineered and doesn't carry the torch of so many modern recordings that are over-compressed and lifeless. This recording puts Diana right in front of you, centered in the sound and very clear. Other instruments play in different areas in the stage and are all very well represented. With the right equipment this album will bring this performance to life in your home and you can almost touch the instruments yourself as they play.
As for the music itself, this album is the first time I've sat down and done any critical listening to Diana Krall. I find the music to be well produced and open with a natural and laid-back feeling that I expect from a great jazz album. The inclusion of vibraphone on some tracks just adds icing to the, already sweet, cake.
Lyrically this album is clever and engaging with great writing and some excellent imagery.
Overall this album is one you can enjoy listening intently to or playing as you work or accomplish other tasks around the house as it's quality is fantastic and it's also a very pleasant experience musically.

a preponderance of "beautiful blond" stuff -- the photos, the poses.... Aren't we mixing up things
and not focusing on her talent? I'm offended by that PR stuff. I suppose she doesn't have much
control because the bean counters are selling part jazz great, part Playboy girl-of-the-month.
She a fine looking rather plain woman with makeup and mucho money going for hair stylist.
Well, that's enough of that. Her tune selections on this album are the best. I hope that in the
future she'll do away with strings and physical promotion and stick to the music.
