"Sinatra Live at the Sands" with the Count Basie orchestra from 1966, it gets no better.

Any one of them is great, but I'd start with Restless. She's pretty amazing at uncovering lost gems from the Songbook era, but now that she's predominantly a live act, she's been known to throw "Like A Rolling Stone," "Maggie's Farm" and "God Only Knows" into her sets. It's pretty amazing that her records sound so good, seeing as she self-produced all three of them with the money she scraped together from gigs and her then day-job waitressing. Hope you enjoy them…

That's probably why they sound so good

Not me!
I find here music really great, and she looks stunning as well.

Hm. iTunes tells me I absolutely adore Live in Paris and I liked All For You quite well. I also have picked up The Girl..., The Look of Live & Love Scents just for the sake of them being SACDs, but I rarely ever listen to them. They are all a bit dull and lifeless, way too polished and perfect for my taste, which totally contradicts their overall awesome production quality. Live in Paris is a whole different thing. She may not be the epitome of Jazz, but that is one great album.

She goes around screwing up songs made famous by other people who did a much better job of it and then people pay money for that crap?????? For the fans, I recommend if you like one of her songs, you go and find out who else did that song and buy an album from one those people. Its kinda like "Do you want an album by Frank or do you want the Mikey Bubbleybutt version"? If you rather hear Beyonce do "At Last" instead of Etta James then just go ahead an open a vein now because your lost.

Gosh, that Michael Bublé reference went right by me.

Factcheck: Krall was a star before she met Elvis Costello.

Confession: The three (or is it four?) times I've actually put on Live In Paris, I made it all the way through. Since I get a subset of ADD pretty quickly when music doesn't blow me away, that's saying a lot.

If you hate Diana Krall, do you have to hate her husband?

I dont' like Elvis Costello regardless of his choice in wimmin - Like Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols said "Elvis Costello is a wanker - he wears glasses with no glass in them."
