"When I Look In Your Eyes"
Blessed with incredible piano skills and a sultry voice, Diana Krall is a
remarkable performer. What Brian Setzer did to big band swing, Krall should
achieve the same success with traditionnal Jazz. Her 1999 release, When
I Look In Your Eyes, is an excellent array of great jazz -- Jazz lovers
will enjoy this album, and will want to hear more of her music.
Irvin Berlin's "Let's Face The Music And Dance" has the atmosphere
of Getz/Gilberto's "The Girl From Ipanema." Snappy-styled jazz is heard
on "Devil May Care" written by Bob Dorough. Simply beautiful, "Let's
Fall In Love" written by Ted Koehler & Harold Arlen has the style of the soft
jazz classics by Nat King Cole. The music is great also, with great piano,
electric guitar, and stand-up bass.
The title track, written by Leslie Bricusse, has incredible orchestration,
and Diana Krall's sultry vocals can really set the romantic mood. "Popsicle
Toes" (written by Michael Franks), resembles the snappy jazz of The Nat
King Cole Trio, and it's bassline could be compared to the classic Jazz hit that
Miss Peggy Lee, Elvis Presley, and many others had covered, "Fever."
Cole Porter's "I've Got You Under My Skin" is a traditional classic.
Recorded by many many artists, Diana Krall's version is simply beautiful,
romantic, and sexy. The snappy-jazz style is back again with Jimmy McHugh &
Dorothy Fields' "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." Harry Warren & Al
Dubin's "I"ll String Along With You" is another sultry, sexy ballad,
"East Of The Sun (West Of The Moon)" (Brooks Bowman) returns the
snappy-jazz, as it is yet another very enjoyable tune. Likewise, Jerome Kern & Dorothy
Fields' "Pick Yourself Up" is another great easy listening tune, similar
to such artists as Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. Irving Berlin's "The
Best Thing For You" is another Nat King Cole/snappy jazz number.
"Do It Again" (George Gershwin & B.G. DeSylva) is another great slow
mood-setting jazz song, with great sultry vocals, and incredible musical
orchestration. Likewise, the ending song, co-written by a generous jazz lover,
actor Clint Eastwood (Eastwood/Carole Bager-Sayer/Linda Thompson), "Why Should I
Care" is very beautiful, and incredibly sexy with its saxophone solos.
Heavily influenced by Nat King Cole (her first album was a tribute to him),
traditional jazz, and beautiful sexy ballads makes When I Look In Your Eyes
an incredible album for romantic mood settings, and entertaining jazz in general.
Fans of such related artists as Eva Cassidy, and the recent grammy-winning Norah
Jones will enjoy Diana Krall's music. Once you hear When I Look In Your Eyes,
you'll want to listen to this album over and over, likewise her other releases.
