Music CD - 2012

Rate this:
Diana Krall's extraordinary new album, 'Glad Rag Doll' 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. 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. It is at once a major departure and a natural progression for the gifted musician. Diana simply calls the album, "a song and dance record."

GOOD 2012 release by talented singer/pianist. I enjoyed it and am listening to all her material. So far her GREAT 2014 Wallflower release, also available at KCLS, is tops for me.

Lush, sensual, energetic, and gorgeous, it's worth listening to even if you don't like jazz.

The most overproduced and least interesting of Krall's endeavors. She and T-Bone Burnett should NOT have collaborated. "Lush, sensual, energetic, and gorgeous, it's worth listening to even if you don't like jazz." Because, translation, if you DO LIKE or KNOW SOMETHING about jazz, you will have sense enough and taste enough to recognize Glad Rag Doll as TOTAL GARBAGE.

I’m not typically a Jazz fan, but I saw this artist perform on “The Colbert Report” and enjoyed her music so thought I’d check out the CD & it was awesome. Diana is a Canadian jazz pianist and singer, who sings interesting lyrics with a smooth voice. Impressive!
