4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and Sultry, 15 Jan 2002
This review is from: The Look Of Love (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.
