Diana Krall: The Girl In The Other Room (2004)
Then there’s Krall’s piano interludes. She interprets as well from the keyboard as she does vocally.
Guitarist Anthony Wilson makes a perfect partner for Krall. His lyrical slides and blue nuances provide the same kind of shading that the singer reveals through her lyric choruses of melancholy. The two express deep feeling and sincere emotions... the heartfelt kind. Wilson’s guitar and Krall’s piano, alone, give her audience a fulfillment unmatched by many popular artists.
In this era of iTunes and MP3s, downloading single songs can mean losing sight of which song is which. Portability also means that there will be distractions during a listening session. To combat this unfortunate side effect, Krall gives her audience something to remember with each selection. Whether it's one of her collaborations with Elvis Costello or one of the gems by Mose Allison, Joni Mitchell or Tom Waits, she’s left an impression that won’t fade any time soon. The unique voice, the unmistakable piano interpretation, and the meaningful interpretation of each song’s lyric message stays with you for good.
