Grammy®-winning pianist/vocalist Diana Krall, one of today's best-selling jazz artists, returns to DPAC with an evening of unmistakably sophisticated jazz. She will appear on the heels of her self-proclaimed “song and dance” album Glad Rag Doll.
Diana Krall's extraordinary new album Glad Rag Doll (10/02, 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, humor and a renewed sense of tenderness and intimacy.
The record reveals itself at that remarkable vanishing point in time where all music, swinging, rocking and taboo, collide with songs of longing, solace and regret. All are made new again in a vaudeville of Krall's own imagining.
Working for the first time with renowned producer T Bone Burnett and engineer Mike Piersante, Krall revels in a fresh sonic playground captured in the vivid grain and deep resonant focus of analog tape. Burnett has assembled a distinguished cast of remarkable men to complement Krall's piano contribution at an 1890s Steinway upright.
Diana Krall's 2009 Grammy® winning album, Quiet Nights, 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.
