CD Reviews

I can't seem to stop listening to this.

"Very listenable. This is my favorite album of Ms. Krall's. If you like small groups, standards and stuff with a little swing, this is the disc for you. This CD is very straightforward but has some nifty little surprises. I can hear the influence of Mary Stallings (!) and (I know you won't believe this) a tiny touch of Ahmad Jamal (!!!). She even recorded a version of the Harold Arlen tune "As Long As I Live." It seems like nobody ever records or even knows about that great little song. There is something here for a casual listener and a total jazz snob like me. A deal at twice the price."
Smooth Jazz and on from there.................

"There isn't anything I don't like about Diana Krall and her music. She is the most refreshing and the nicest thing to look and listen to in a whole lot of years, an entire generation, even. I loved her from the moment I heard her first piece........"Peel me a Grape" on Calif. Bay Area Radio Station KKSF---103.4. Just a few years ago. The rest just gets better and better, can't go through the day without listening to her! Steppin Out displays her enormous piano skills----SHE IS JUST SO GOOD! It's hard to focus on just one album. Stepping Out takes you through the moods and completes the feelings that the soul of Jazz demands of you. VERY NICE!"
Diana Krall at her best: She sings! She plays! She swings!

"This is a great CD: vintage Diana Krall before the marketing folks at GRP Records got ahold of her career. Unlike her three most recent albums of "easy listening" music, which see her talents as a jazz singer and pianist well hidden, this album swings! Unlike the overly-breathy sultriness of recent efforts, her singing style here is strong and effortless, reminiscent of Shirley Horn or Rosemary Clooney. Her playing, even at this early stage of her career, is melodic and complementary to her vocal phrasing. I owned the original release when it came out in '93, and just bought this remastered edition, which is well worth it. The sound quality was already just fine, but this new version is better yet, with increased detail and soundstage. Best of all, there is a bonus track, which was omitted from the original release, and is a real treat for a longtime Diana fan. After the disappointing schmaltz of Love Scenes and The Look of Love, it was exhilarating to hear a new track of Ms. Krall singing and swinging again!!"
