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

DIANA KRALL The Look Of Love (2001 UK 10-track CD album from Diana Krall with her quartet and the London Symphony Orchestra performing a sensual collection of ballads and bossa novas. Includes SWonderful Dancing In The Dark Cry Me A River The Look Of Love Besame Mucho and others picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

More polished than ever before, Diana Krall strolls with languorous ease through The Look of Love, effortlessly charting her continuing growth as a sophisticated singer of the popular songbook. She brings to a delightful selection of Latin flavoured standards all of the charm that has so captivated her huge following during the past few years. That audience, especially those who enjoyed her last outing, When I Look In Your Eyes, will delight in this CD. There may be a little less of Diana's own piano playing than some fans might like, but the accompaniment, mainly from the London Symphony Orchestra, is flawless. Throughout, the lush strings, arranged by Claus Ogerman, are spiced by the addition of a handful of jazz players among which is Diana's long time musical associate, guitarist Russell Malone. Here and there a gentle touch of Latin percussion is added, bringing a pleasing hint of rhythmic urgency but for the most part this is laid-back, relaxed music making of a very high order. --Bruce Crowther

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and Sultry 15 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Everyone who heard the wonderful songs from Diana Krall's last album 'When I look in your eyes' waited in anticipation for her next album. And, earlier this year Ms Krall released 'The Look of Love'. I didn't know what to expect, but I did realise there would be a big change in style as her record label Verve turned Diana from a girl next door jazz pianist/vocalist into a sex symbol and world wide super star.
'The Look of Love' is different from her previous albums. In other Krall albums there has always been a variety of styles from smoochy ballads to up beat swing. Her latest creation, however, contains only slow to medium paced ballads with some interjections of bossa nova. There are no really fast swing numbers here.
This album is stylish and a joy to listen to, perfect for cosy night's in or romantic dinners. The style is cool, laid back easy listening. Diana's band are sturdy, reliable and give the album a good flow. There is also use of an orchestra which does give the album a far more romantic atmosphere than just the trio alone.
Diana's voice is always sultry, sexy and utterly moving. She puts so much feeling into each song that you can not help but be taken by her beautiful velvet voice.
One disapointment of this album is that Diana Krall hardly gets chance to shine with regards to her piano playing. This girl is a superb pianist but there are only one or two piano solos from her on the entire album.
This is probably not an album for hard core jazz fans, as the mood is definately easy listening, and the songs are a mixture of jazzy standards and popular tunes. However, if like me you love to hear beautiful music played by talented artists. If you love to hear a stunning voice and gentle songs, then you will love this album.

Take any track in isolation and you can't fail but be impressed by the cool sophistication of the voice and the subtle bossanova arrangements. All very stylish and sales will be mega, confirming Diana Krall's graduation from jazz artist to an MOR superstar. Looked at as a complete CD, the Look of Love's late-night Latin mood becomes rather repetitive and may leave those fans who have been following her career for a few years yearning for some of the adventure and rhythmic variety which have characterised earlier efforts. We were turned on by her jazz roots and it is to be hoped that she will return whence she came with future recordings. Incidentally, for those who dig Diana in a more informal setting she does a delightful version of "Let's Get Lost", the title track of a new Sony CD by Terence Blanchard, one of the current top gun jazz trumpeters whose other guests are Dianne Reeves, Cassandra Wilson and Jane Monheit.

5.0 out of 5 stars sublime listening 2 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
Diana Krall's latest album is of a slower tempo than her earlier work. This is more like 'lounge' music, gentle, soothing, smooth.
Her rendition of such classics as 'S'Wonderful', 'Cry me a River', and 'Love letters' are the best I've heard. She's also included some Bossa Nova, not a type of music I'm normally keen on but after hearing Diana sing it I could change my mind.
This is late evening music, sublime listening for when the lights are low and you just want to relax.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Look of Love 9 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was given this album by my son. Who is this Diana Krall I thougt. I have now played the whole album over 300 times and never tire of it. I play it non -stop on a three and a half hour car journey. It relaxes and keeps you alert, because you have to sing along. In fact this album should be prescribed on the NHS. This is a "must buy" Everyone I have let listen to it has rushed out and bought a copy. What a shame she's to marry Elvis Costello, or I'd ask her to marry me. If Diana reads this, my address can be made available, he he.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime�. my type of Jazz 17 Dec 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I guess just like all music, jazz comes in different 'styles'. Full on jazz does nothing for me but Diana Krall's style is a different story all together. I had only heard her once or twice on TV clips so really had no idea as to what she really sounded like but due to the constant praise in the press I decided to take the plunge. There was no particular reason I chose this album over her others but what an introduction. Her voice is perfectly suited to the style of jazz she sings and is backed up by some wonderful piano playing and musical accompaniment. True jazz aficionado's have apparently not been so enthusiastic about this album but don't let that put you off. Put this on in the background (or even better through headphones) and just enjoy. This is a sublime album from a true artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diana continues with a successful formula 18 April 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Following the success of her two previous albums, Love scenes and When I look in your eyes, Diana recorded another album in similar style. It doesn’t quite make the same impact, but that may be due to raised expectations because this is still a high quality album.
Diana has once again selected songs from the Great American Songbook to fill the album, though this time she also has included a sixties song, The look of love, which was a hit for Dusty Springfield, and a fifties song, Cry me a river, which was a hit for Julie London.
S’wonderful was originally a top five American hit in 1928 for the long-forgotten Frank Crumit. Love letters was a hit for its writer, Dick Haymes, in 1946, but only really became popular when Ketty Lester covered it in the sixties and had a huge international hit with it. Elvis Presley and Alison Moyet have also had huge hits with their covers. I remember you is another 1940’s song that waited for the sixties to gain popularity, this time via a Frank Ifield cover.
Diana sings these songs as well as anybody, and also plays piano on all tracks. However, all tracks feature either the London symphony orchestra or the Los Angeles session orchestra, so Diana does not get the chance to show just what she can do with a piano.
This is a wonderful album that confirms Diana as the leading jazz lady in the world today.
