From This Moment Onby Diana Krall
After her ambitious 2004 release The Girl in the Next Room, which featured original songs and contemporary music touches, Diana Krall returns to the sound that made her the jazz diva of choice for a new generation. Collaborating with both the crack Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra and her own fine quartet, Krall essays tried-and-true standards in the inimitable cool-yet-committed tone that sets her apart from all competitors. Sharing production chores with Tommy LiPuma, Krall finds the right mix of ballads and light swingers to showcase her intimate vocals. The repertoire is A-list all the way, calling on Porter, Gershwin, Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, and other Great American Songbook masters while also finding room for Jobim’s bossa nova masterpiece “How Insensitive.” That Krall touches on Sinatra territory in her choice of material displays how assured she remains as a personal stylist. It’s good to have Krall back on familiar territory, doing what she does best.

I like Diana's husky voice. But I really liked the arrangement on Isn't This A Lovely Day. The arranger/bassist John Clayton always does a great job on Diana Krall's music. I heard John is going to release a new album soon. I'm going to check it out.
return to the style that made her famous.
This Release is a tad too laid back.
What a great salute to the big bands. Finally Diana is back in form. Well, she was back when she released the Christam Song album last year. This album deserves notice. It is great salute to the American Songbook. The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra is simply wonderful. Diana's voice and piano playing is too marvelous for words.
I'm a HUGE Diana Krall fan - purchased this CD on the day it was released. I've been listening to it for a few days now in my car, and I keep rewinding it to the first two songs - those are the only song arrangements that I like. The others appear to be draggy (if that is indeed a word). I loved Diana's XMAS album from last year and I wanted to like this one too - I guess it wasn't meant to be.
