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.
this disk. The overall feeling is one of low lights, a bit of wine, scents of musk and living one
moment at a time with the one you adore. Yes, all this before you had children.
This album was my introduction to Diana Krall. I was overwhelmed by her melodic phrasing on the
piano and her vocals. She successfully seduced me as she sang her way through my heart by way
of these classic songs. She used a trio and a quartet plus some strings, on a few, to help coax
those wary feelings from my heart. Wow.
I was lucky enough to see her just after this release, playing with her trio, in a relatively small
venue. Terrific show and with the same tasteful presentation. She preformed the most of this album
as well as others. I was so sorry to have missed her opening for Tony Bennett months later. Ah
One can pick just about any song and write a tribute to her presentation; her musical finesse. Well,
except "Popsicle Toes". Never liked that song and unfortunately Ms. Krall did her best and I find it
the weakest cut on a highly consistent and delightful album.
The DVD-A disc is allegedly playable on most DVD players. The Sound Options: Advanced Resolution
Surround Sound (96hkz/24bit), Stereo(96khz/24 bit), or Dolby Digital Surround Sound; all depending
upon the type of DVD player you own.
The DVD-A version includes a "Let's Face the Music and Dance" Music Video. This song is one of the
most atmospheric and intimate pieces of music I have chanced upon in a long, long time. Nuance and
understatement make this piece stand out and make you fall in love with love again. Delightful and
soft as it wafts to your ears, around your brain and into your heart. She whispers oh-so-sweet
nothings and you feel the warmth of her breath and you shake to your toes.
Whether you buy the standard release, or the DVD-A, you will love these songs and fall in love again.
The production and mastering of the original stereo CD is superb, but listening to the DVD-A disk is
like letting Ms. Krall perform in your living room. And I would not even ask for an autograph.
