No, seriously, this is the best I've ever heard. What does she do? She sings contralto and plays piano, with (really good) guitar, string bass and drums as backing. But the more I listen, especially to this particular album, the more impressed I get. Diana Krall clearly subscribes to the school of acoustic performance that says that anything live is always twice as fast and three times as good as a recording. Play it to your mates, play it to your granny. You just can't fail to be moved even by the first opening chords; and the pace never lets up. It's a timeless evocation of happier times. Anyone who has any respect for music in any form should listen to this and see how it should be done.
