All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Pianist/vocalist Diana Krall pays tribute to the Nat King Cole Trio on her Impulse! set. In general, the medium and up-tempo tunes work best, particularly such hot ditties as "I'm an Errand Girl for Rhythm," "Frim Fram Sauce," and "Hit That Jive Jack." Krall does not attempt to directly copy Cole much either pianistically or vocally, although his influence is obviously felt on some of the songs. The slow ballads are actually as reminiscent of Shirley Horn as Cole, particularly the somber "I'm Through With Love" and "If I Had You." Guitarist Russell Malone gets some solo space on many of the songs and joins in on the group vocal of "Hit That Jive Jack," although it is ...

Guitarist Russell Malone gets some solo space on many of the songs and joins in on the group vocal of "Hit That Jive Jack," although it is surprising that he had no other opportunities to interact vocally with Krall; a duet could have been delightful. Bassist Paul Keller is fine in support, pianist Benny Green backs Krall's vocal on "If I Had You," and percussionist Steve Kroon is added on one song. Overall, this is a tasteful effort that succeeds.

    This was the first Diana Krall album I listened to. It's a tribu

    This was the first Diana Krall album I listened to. It's a tribute to Nat King Cole, and one he would definitely smile at. It certainly made me smile with: "Popsicle Toes" and "Frim Fram Sauce". It's a must have for any fan of Nat King Cole's music, done in the style that only Diana Krall possesses.

    "Allfor You"

    I really enjoy Diana Krall's husky-voiced singing and jazzy style in both
    her singing and playing, along with her back-up group who knows where
    she is going with her arrangements.

    One Of Her Best CD's

    I am a recent Diana Krall fan; I purchased all her CD's within two months. This was the last one that I bought--but it is one of her best!!! Her sultry voice and the musical arrangements are one-of-a-kind. I can't wait for her next CD.

    Diana Krall really feels her music

    The albums I have (all of them) have really endeared her vocal style. Being an old jazz drummer myself, I especially like her up tempo renditions. A real fan and I can't wait to get the next album.

    One of her best albums

    This is her best album. It can be listened in any setting (rCandelight-omantic, background-relaxation, or just enjoying soft Jazz) and even non-Jazz affectionados think the vocalization shows a great tonal range, and the backup well arranged and melodic. This particular album is in the league with the better of soft-Jazz stylists/vocalists. The only song does not belong here on this albums theme is ''Hit that Jive Jack''.
