Diana Krall "From This Moment On" 180gm 2LP
Format: 180gm 2LP
Limited pressing of this 2006 album from the acclaimed vocalist/pianist.
Returning to a large ensemble sound, pianist/vocalist Diana Krall delivers a superb performance on From This Moment On. Listeners find Krall diving headlong into the Great American Songbook that has long been her bread and butter. Impressive big swing numbers like "Come Dance with Me" showcase her muscular rhythmic chops both vocally and on the keys.
Having long drawn comparisons to such iconic and icy jazz singers as Julie London and Peggy Lee, Krall truly earns such high praise here. In fact, tracks like "Willow Weep for Me" and "Little Girl Blue" are drawn with such virtuosic melancholy by Krall as to be far and away some of the best ballads she's put to record. Similarly impressive big swing numbers like "Come Dance with Me" showcase her muscular rhythmic chops both vocally and on the keys.
Backing her here is the always wonderful Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, featuring some punchy and solid solo spots by trumpeter Terell Stafford, as well as the rhythm section talents of guitarist Anthony Wilson, bassist Robert Hurst, and drummer Jeff Hamilton.
