In an age of sonic bombardment and in-your-face delivery, Diana Krall won over a new audience the old-fashioned way: through understatement. A light-toned, subtle singer with a sure feel for swing, Krall is an equally subtle and swinging pianist. And she knows exactly the perfect material to handle.

Overview

In an age of sonic bombardment and in-your-face delivery, Diana Krall won over a new audience the old-fashioned way: through understatement. A light-toned, subtle singer with a sure feel for swing, Krall is an equally subtle and swinging pianist. And she knows exactly the perfect material to handle. Dave Frishberg's "Peel Me a Grape" and Percy Mayfield's "Lost Mind" are given just the right touch of knowing wit, while such seasoned standards as, "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You" and "You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me" get recharged by Krall's sincerity and effervescence. This Canadian transplant models her groups on those of the Nat King Cole trios of the early 1940s, with guitar replacing drums. LOVE SCENES benefits from the presence of the masterful bassist Christian McBride, who joins Krall's regular guitarist, the highly accomplished Russell Malone. By keeping things temperate and in control, Krall quietly seduces the listener.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Vocalist/pianist Diana Krall was a very hot property by the time this Impulse CD was released. Teamed in a trio with her regular guitarist Russell Malone and bassist Christian McBride, Krall here mostly emphasizes ballads having something to do with love. She is at her best on "I Don't Know Enough About You," "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance With You," and "How Deep Is the Ocean." However, Krall's earlier Nat King Cole tribute had more variety in tempos and moods and is recommended first. A decent but not essential release.
