Russell Malone's guitar work behind Ms. Krall is superb as always, but what makes this CD (and even more so the SACD) worthwhile is the sound quality -- it's exceptionally well recorded. Unfortunately Ms. Krall is only adequate as a pop singer and painfully limited when she tries to be a jazz singer, offering up a handful of vocal gimmicks in place of genuine improvisational skills. Heard alongside legitimate jazz vocalists, such as on Ray Brown's "Singers" album, her limitations nearly embarass her. But oh the sound of this recording -- very impressive. The piano really sounds like a piano, a feat few recordings pull off.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
