    While I don't share your views on The Girl in the Other Room (I'm quite found of my SACD of it and I enjoy her wandering off her usual track), I do enjoy her other work immensely. Gotta run, though, so more on her music from me later.

    I don't think Krall has had a really good studio album since The Look Of Love (2001) so that's coming up on ten years of rather disappointing results.

    I'm not one mired to Krall doing the tried and true Cole Porter stuff and the like. If someone thinks she can't handle Brazilian music - take a listen to "Besame Mucho" off of the Look of Love album and then tell me what the heck happened to her with this train wreck of bossa nova that is her latest effort. I also think she can handle more contemporary songs so, again, it's not simply a niche thing. For example, I love listening to "A Case of You" on her Live in Paris effort (the Joni Mitchell song). That's a very tough song to pull off and she does it amazingly well while giving it her own spin.

    Meanwhile, I'm enjoying some Melody Gardot as I'm writing this.

    My boss is going to have an aneurysm from that cover.

    Based on the image, everyone should be getting the 12" vinyl.

    That's EXACTLY what I wrote to a co-worker when I informed him about the release!

    I listed to the Glad Rag Doll album and will now be purchasing it.
    I really got into it. Best way I can describe it ... put it on and you're with Diana Krall in a small, intimate cabaret or piano bar. No big numbers, just interesting songs. Took a bit to get used to her voice as it seems the years have not been kind to her vocal nodes. So, it's a weathered smoky voice .... but along with age comes character and this album has plenty of that. So many songs I like ... "Prairie Lullaby" 'Wide River To Cross" "Lonely Avenue" .... this is a different road for Krall ... but a nice one to explore.
