Diana Krall

Diana Krall's extraordinary new album Glad Rag Doll (2012, 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.

"We all just went in there as if the songs were written yesterday. I didn't want to make a period piece or nostalgia record," said Krall. 

In fact, these are songs that Krall has spent a lifetime contemplating. Both her childhood home and her current address are stacked with 78rpm records and song folios filled with precious and unpolished gems, songs that have not worn out their lustre from repetition. If any of these songs could be identified as "20's or 30's music," then they are 20's or 30's songs as imagined for the 21st Century. The same could be said for a startling rendition of the Doc Pomus classic, "Lonely Avenue", first cut in the 1950s. The contemplative, contemporary reading of the old Gene Austin recording of "Let It Rain" finds a sympathetic echo in Krall's exquisite rendition of Buddy and Julie Miller's more recent ballad of spiritual longing, "Wide River To Cross."

Krall was born in 1964 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Her father played piano at home and her mother sang in a community choir. She was playing piano herself at the age of four and playing jazz in a local restaurant at 15.
In 1999 Diana burst into the public's consciousness with her album When I Look In Your Eyes. In jazz category she took home the Grammy and she became the first jazz artist to be nominated fo the Album of the Year award.
Diana Krall's 2009 GRAMMY® winning album, Quiet Nights, used Brazil as a musical point of reference and landed at  #3 on the Billboard 200, her highest ever position on the chart and her fourth consecutive album to debut within the top 10.
The Glad Rag Doll is Krall’s 11th studio album. Sales of her albums hit millions worldwide winning dozens of prizes including three Grammys.
