CD Review: Diana Krall

Quiet Nights
Verve
By David Chiu

Diana Krall’s latest album is another sultry jazz pop work. It also draws inspiration also from Latin jazz and boss nova, which is no surprise three of the songs in the collection feature the works of Antonio Carlos Jobim, including the classic The Girl from Ipamena (here interpreted as “The Boy From Ipanema”). Accompanied by lush orchestration, the music, spanning from the standards such as by Porter and Cahn/Styne to Bacharach/David, certainly evokes the feeling of summery romantic evenings and furthered by Krall’s husky, luscious vocals.
