Biography

Diana Krall's extraordinary new album 'Glad Rag Doll' (October 2nd, Verve Records) is an exhilarating and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new instrumentation and new musicians. It stars a singer and piano player, filled with mischief, humour and a renewed sense of tenderness and intimacy.

The record reveals itself at that remarkable vanishing point in time where all ... Read more in Amazon's Diana Krall Store

Product Description

Product Description

For the recording of Glad Rag Doll, Diana Krall went into the studio with T Bone Burnett and came out with what the jazz singer calls a "song and dance record". This new sound is evident on tracks such as "There Ain't No Sweet Man That's Worth the Salt of My Tears", written by composer Fred Fisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad Rag Doll - Glad I bought it 15 Oct 2012
By J. D. Naylor TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
A fine and long awaited album from the ever popular Ms Krall. Despite the attention grabbing album cover there is also much to grab the attention inside. No lush orchestrations or jazz standards, just simple tunes, nicely sung, with, at times minimal backing. This puts Diana's voice to the fore and she does just nicely in her own laid back and husky kind of way.
The whole album really could belong in enother era which combines elements of Gypsy jazz, barrel house blues and some good old romantic balladry. Mark ribot on guitar plays a very big part of the accompaniment on this album and Diana's own piano playing often takes a back seat. Many of the tunes have a nice stripped down and laid back affair with minimal backing which is quite unlike her previous albums.
For me this is a much better album than the very low key "Quiet Nights" which gained as much criticism as it did praise. This is a brave and bold step from Diana which may disappoint her Non-jazz fan listeners but for those who can put aside the rapid change of direction then there is much to be enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off!!! 29 Oct 2012
By jazzerS
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK if you want to listen to "A night in Paris" or "The Look of Love" (both of which are great, and I have them and listen to them) - well listen to them I guess! I applaud Diana for an album which is a slight departure from some of the things she has done before. I applaud her especially for looking beyond the classic female jazz vocalist songbook - which she has shown many times she can perform as well or better than the best. So if you want to hear Diana interpreting some different material, and doing it with her usual style and panache, then this album is for you. It is also for you if you like jazz and have a genuine appreciation for the intimate relationship between jazz and the blues. It is also for you if you like Diana's husky delivery, which suits some of this material really well.

No comment directly on some of the other reviews, but "pompous", "ignorant about the roots of jazz", not to mention "narrow minded" are comments that might apply to some of them. Really, what do some of you expect? That she will simply reprise the material she and others have already done more than once? She's an artist - she needs to grow. Great Diana, more please. I think you're great at the classics, and my respect for you as an artist has increased as a result of this album. Keep listening to the 78s!

By Doug TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I have been waiting for a new album from Ms Krall, and was a little shocked and dismayed by the cover image, which is surely not necessary to sell this excellent musicians work. (Hence only 4 stars)

Getting beyond this....

It is however a gem of an album with no fancy orchestras, just simple ballads and songs performed very well indeed.

(It is after all that husky voice that is Diana Krall), and in this album we get to enjoy that voice at its very best with minimal backing.

An excellent album, which I have been listening to over and over again...

Hmmm..... I must admit that the last two studio albums from Krall, which while very pleasant, were creating a strong sense of deja vu in me, and, much the same as Micheal Buble, she seemed to be in a complacent rut of similar arrangements of middle of the road crowd pleasers that offered little in the way of variety and development.

This new offering does at least attempt to take a new approach in presenting Krall as something more than an easy listening popular jazz artist, but unfortunately it's not a wholly successful exercise.

The cover of the CD, on which Krall is uncharacteristically and somewhat tastelessly portrayed as some Britney-like sex doll, is a clue to the changes within. The first few tracks, however, will lead you to think that you're in for another round of 'Quiet Nights', but suddenly by track 5 we're in the new world of the blues/ rock Diana, that only increases in its drawn out monotony as the album progresses.

Don't get me wrong, some of the tracks are very good indeed and are a refreshing diversion from the Krall norm, but the production of this album overall is rather muddy and does not pay homage to any instrument, including the vocals, except the electric guitar, which takes over as the main focus of extended bridge in too many of the tracks.

She does deserve some credit for attempting something different here, which in some tracks works fairly well, but the album as a whole won't appeal to fans of her earlier work, but neither will it appeal to rock or blues fans either, and this is its fundamental problem. It simply doesn't know what kind of album to be, and Krall really does seem to have come rather unstuck with this ill-advised muddle of styles.

Further listening might make it grow on you, but I can't help feeling, rather reluctantly, that Krall is going to be forced back into her comfort zone after this.

Too much, too soon, too muddled.

Shame.
