So Good

Paul_D

One of the few albums on this site you really need to take as a whole, Beautiful music. You've never heard 42nd street done this well.

Just sit back and enjoy......

Soft lights, a bottle of wine, someone you love and Diana Krall's CD. From cut to cut, she can bring a smile to your lips as well as your heart. Soft jazz at its best.

so easy to listen to

Wonderful remake of some great standards and she does them proud! Really enjoy this album, I have even converted some pop listeners to jazz with this selection. Great music, and she make it timeless.

More Diana Krall!

I love this woman's voice and style. This is a good album, but I sure wish we had some more recent work to choose from as well. She does mostly pretty standard stuff here, and I really enjoy the newer material she has chosen to include in more recent albums. That said, you will certainly enjoy what is offered here if you choose to download. My favorite song available here is definitely "Body and Soul."

Unique voice, artful music

I saw her at the Hollywood Bowl and she was fantastic. Her voice is genuinely beautiful. No over-production here.

An incredible talent, Krall does what she's best at with great music - and she doesn't mess with it, which is such a welcome change!

the voice...

How can you NOT like her voice? I love the old school feeling to the album, but her singing is still fresh and crisp. Solid pick...

They Say All Music Guide

Krall’s first recording remains an eye and ear opener. Without the overt schmaltz, Krall proves a sincere singer and, more so, a fine pianist whose talent in this area would later become sublimated. If you want to hear not only the roots of Krall’s jazzier and romantic side, not to mention the fun, you’ll get it all on this remastered CD, with a bulletproof rhythm section of the peerless bassist John Clayton and always on-the-money/in-the-pocket drummer Jeff Hamilton. The program contains several songs that have become Krall’s signature tunes. “Straighten Up & Fly Right” is typically cute as she nicely modifies the lyric. “Frim Fram Sauce” is easily swung and wittily rendered. Several standards such as the easy swinging, bluesy “I’m Just a Lucky So & So” with its impressive bridge piano or the straight read of “Do Nothin’ ‘Til You Hear From Me” seem like child’s play. She uses delayed, staggered phrasings with energetic pianistics during “As Long As I Live,” jumps in more pronounced and driving tones for “This Can’t Be Love,” and cleverly deviates from the melody in now typical Krall-ian fashion for the previously unreleased “On the Sunny Side of the Street.” She’s most convincing on the unaccompanied take of the classic “Body & Soul” and goes into semi-classical mode with Clayton’s bowed bass during her lone original “Jimmie.” There are two instrumentals: “42nd Street” swings very well with flourishes inserted here and there on a slight re-arrange, while Klaus Suonsaari’s (not Charlie Parker’s) “Big Foot” sports heavy modal introductory chords, impressive stop starts on a blues strut, and the most interaction during this set. Krall’s fans should consider this an essential recording in her growing discography, and perhaps in many ways her best. – Michael G. Nastos
