Product Overview

From the luxurious opening chords of the first track, even before Diana Krall has sung a single beautiful note, her new Verve release-The Look of Love-will have you hooked. After winning a Best Jazz Vocal Performance Grammy for 1999's platinum-selling When I Look in Your Eyes, Diana Krall delivers her best album yet-a lush, cinematic collection of ballads and bossa nova tunes. Produced by Verve Music Group Chairman Tommy LiPuma, and featuring the London Symphony Orchestra arranged and conducted by the legendary Claus Ogerman, The Look of Love brings to mind such classic Frank Sinatra albums as In The Wee Small Hours and Only The Lonely. But the elegant piano solos, the sensual vocals, and the wickedly modern sense of humor are, inimitably, all Krall. "Claus Ogerman and Johnny Mandel have been my favorite arranger/composers since I was seventeen years old," Diana explains. "So I said to Tommy LiPuma, 'wouldn't it be great if we could work with Claus on the next album?'" At the time, it seemed simply like another 'what if?' Sure, Ogerman had crafted landmark albums for Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, and Antonio Carlos Jobim, but the German composer had been retired from arranging other musicians' work-concentrating instead on his own piano sonatas and violin concertos-for almost 17 years. Then, when Diana was on tour in Munich, LiPuma arranged for her to have lunch with Ogerman. Struck by Diana's musicianship, and their mutual love of old movies, Ogerman took the project on. The film buff connection proved to be more than a coincidence; it influenced how Krall has grown as a singer. Her voice is richer than it has ever been and so is the feeling underneath each song. "There are passages in which she reminds me of Barbara Stanwyck," Ogerman told The Los Angeles Times recently. "She's acting the words great, the way Sinatra did. While he was singing, he was acting out the lyrics, and Diana does the same thing." From a smoky rendition of "Cry Me A River," to the heartbreaking tenderness of "I Get Along Without You Very Well," to a Spanish-language version of "Besame Mucho," and her sultry rendition of the title track, The Look of Love is the album that Diana Krall fans have been waiting for. Of The Look of Love, Krall says: "I was so creatively pumped. We recorded so many tunes; I wish we could have released a double record... This album is my dream come true."
