Review: Diana Krall by Beck

August 26th, 2009 03:41am

A few of the things I learned about Diana Krall in less than two hours:

- She has a microwave on her tour bus.
- Her kids are busy out in the lobby working the merch table.
- The hot-pink stilettos she strutted across the stage were a gift from some guy named Elvis. And no they’re not red.
- It happened to be Elvis’ birthday. To celebrate, he was scarfing clams casino at Carmine’s in Chicago.
- “Cheek to Cheek” was not really in her key.
- Learning music while growing up on Vancouver Island, she had fun at “band camp”.
- She’s actually shy (to prove it, she sang, “I’m shy!” after stumbling through an intro to a Tom Waits song).
- When she used to fly across the country with Rosemary Clooney, it was with a vodka tonic in one hand and rosary beads in the other.
- She likes to steal jokes from Sacha Baron Cohen (something about how she loved Buzz Aldrin in “Toy Story” and how Louis Armstrong walked on the moon - the segue being that Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweickart was in the audience).
- Brazilian songwriter Antonio Carlos Jobim once played a show at Carnegie Hall while the taxi meter was running.
- She’s going to therapy next week.

In other words, when she mentioned “I got silly when I had kids,” it was more than understood. There’s always been something a little goofy on the surface about Diana Krall - kind of like a blonde tomboy in heels, kind of like a pre-bombshell Scarlett Johansson in “Ghost World.”

But when she slips in those sultry vocals, it all melts away. After all the non sequiturs and strained asides, she’ll casually start a song, just tinkering at the keys, and suddenly Jobim’s “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars” is recast as a dreamy love song (only to fall away like a veil in closing) or suddenly Waits’ “Jockey Full of Bourbon” moves with a sway instead of a grind and Nat King Cole’s “Frim-Fram Sauce” makes you actually want the french-fried potatoes along with the ausen fay and the chafafa.

It happened again and again Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center in Santa Rosa.

Regardless of that taxi meter, Jobim got his due in hushed tones that breathed a little differently and read a little differently on paper: “Quiet Nights” and “The Boy From Ipanema.”

Her surrounding cast - Anthony Wilson on guitar, Robert Hurst on bass and Jeff Hamilton on drums - filled in all the blanks, especially with Hurst’s left-turn solo on “Cheek to Cheek” - a song that found Hamilton slowing the brushes down to the pace of a Zen garden rake.

By the time Krall summoned a bluesy Jelly Roll piano run through pieces of “(What’s So Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding” and Elvis’ new song “Sulphur to Sugarcane,” somewhere Nick Lowe was smiling and somewhere her husband was digesting clams casino and waiting for a happy birthday call (after all, as she mentioned, their iChat was down all day).

Did I mention the not-red hot-pink shoes?

Streisand talks about Krall - LA Times

... But it seems that everybody, even Streisand, thinks that Luiz Bonfá's "The Gentle Rain" belongs to the "Black Orpheus" soundtrack. Jesus!

Barbra Streisand
The singer's new 'Love Is the Answer,' produced by Diana Krall, is lushly orchestrated.
by Susan King (Los Angeles Times, August 31, 2009).

Barbra Streisand may make beautiful music, but she rarely listens to it.

"I don't understand today's music," Streisand acknowledged, adding that she does enjoy some contemporary artists. "I saw John Mayer recently. My God, what a great guitarist and singer, but I don't turn on music. I listen so much when I am making a record.... I get so tired of music."

Especially when songs favor the beat over the lyrics.

"I can't relate," said the 67-year-old Streisand. "I guess the society is getting somehow angrier and angrier and less from the heart. It's sad. You know we are living in very hard times. We are living in fear and anger, and that is represented by the music."

Such negative emotions are nonexistent in her latest album, "Love Is the Answer," which will be released Sept. 29. The work, Streisand's first studio album since 2005's "Guilty Pleasures," is about melodies and lyrics, she said.

The bestselling female recording artist in history avoided the recording studio because of her touring schedule as well as the demands of building a new Cape Code-style house in Malibu.

"I didn't even know if I would have a voice left because I was full of sawdust and screaming over the hammers and the saws," she said.

"Love Is the Answer" also marks the first time the Oscar-, Emmy-, Tony- and Grammy-winning Streisand has worked with award-winning Canadian jazz artist Diana Krall and her combo.

Streisand was executive producer of the album; Krall was producer.

"We had a mutual respect for one another and admiration," said Streisand from New York during a recent phone interview.

"Her mom used to play my records," added Streisand, who met Krall at the Monterey Jazz Festival a few years ago. "So she kind of grew up with them. I usually produce a lot of my own things, so we did it as a collaboration."

Oscar-winning composer Johnny Mandel ("The Shadow of Your Smile"), who has worked with Krall and Streisand previously, provided the disc's lush orchestrations.

"We met several times to just go over songs," said Streisand of Krall. "She would send me songs. I would tell her what I would like to sing. What I haven't sung. What I meant to sing."

For example, the smoky bossa nova "Gentle Rain" from the 1959 classic film "Black Orpheus" was in Streisand's repertoire on her latest tour as "my opener because it was nice to open the voice with a gentle song. Diana had recorded it, so it was the perfect thing to put on this album."

Streisand had always wanted to record Jacques Brel and Rod McKuen's haunting "If You Go Away." Streisand was such a fan of the French singer Brel that she flew to Marseilles in the 1960s to hear him perform in concert, only to have him not sing his signature tune.

Krall suggested the lovely "Make Someone Happy" from the 1960s Broadway musical "Do Re Mi," composed by Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Jule Styne, who wrote the music for Streisand's Broadway hit "Funny Girl."

"I love the fact that my dear friend Jule Styne wrote it," she said. "I fell in love with that song. That was so fun. We did that several times to get it right."

Streisand even changed the lyrics for a fundraiser last year for then-Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama:

"Barack is the answer
We know that he is the answer
Since we've found him
Let's all rally 'round him"

The regular CD features the Mandel-arranged orchestra versions of the songs; the two-disc deluxe CD set also features Streisand performing the selections with Krall's jazz group.

Krall always records basic tracks with her band and then the orchestra is added later.

"David Foster records that way, where you do the tracks first," said Streisand. "I don't particularly like it. I love the inspiration of the orchestra. But it brought me back to the way I started, so there is something very pure about it, not innocent but young and youthful -- nostalgic."

Streisand is giving an intimate concert of selections from "Love Is the Answer" at the famed New York jazz club the Village Vanguard on Sept. 26 for 100 lucky fans.

Her website at is offering three contests to win tickets: Pixel Puzzle Game, Show Us Your Streisand Video Contest and Sammie's Cutest Pet Photo Contest. Sammie is Streisand's fluffy white pooch.

The concert was the brainchild of her manager, Martin Erlichman, who has handled Streisand since she was a teenager making a name for herself at such New York nightclubs as the Bon Soir and the Blue Angel, which no longer exist.

When she was 19, she auditioned at the Vanguard. "Miles Davis was the star of the show. The opening girl singer was Joanie Sommers. My friend Rick Edelstein was the waiter and he got Miles' musicians to back me at the audition."

"I didn't get the job," she added.
