I'm sorry, but I just hate Diana Krall, Holly Cole and all of these tepid, boring, white bread 'jazz' performers...I just don't get it, I really don't. Like last night on 'Hot Air' on CBC radio (in Canada) they played a couple of Krall covers (again) then followed it up with an Ella Fitzgerald number - it was like sitting in a fetid darkened bedroom with your old dog snoring then getting up and opening the curtains to see the sun-shining beautiful world of nature outside...what were they thinking? Now I know I am hitting a hot button by saying this - and everyone is entitled to their own taste and opinions - but come on! Dig through the past when jazz was king - you'll find a 100 better singers - played by a 1000 better musicians - with real soul, not this somnambulistic lazy lounge crud that has taken over the jazz world. I would rather take valium and listen to Mel Torme at half-speed than endure Diana Krall droning through 'Frim Fram Sauce', in fact I would rather be listening to the drill bit in the dentist's chair than hear any more dull, drivelling Nat King Cole covers!...man, I'm gonna go and put on some old Freddie Hubbard - I can't believe he's dead... Who wants to join the club?
