Diana Krall – Quiet Nights

As the title hinted, Diana Krall’s newest release is best experienced during Quiet Nights. From the opening “Where or When” to the bonus-closing “Every Time We Say Good Bye,” Krall delivered the entire bossa nova-flavored album in a relaxed, mellow tone. Together with her quartet and Claus Ogerman, master of Brazilian-tinged orchestration, Krall breathes calm and breezy air into the title tune, “So Nice” (love her tasty piano chops) and other standards.
