At 43, Diana Krall is no longer the wunderkind who snuck up on jazz lovers in 1993, and gave them a small, wet kiss on the back of their necks in the form of her debut album, "Stepping Out."

Seasoned as a pianist, singer, writer, Krall is now a wife (she's married to Elvis Costello) and mother with 12 albums to her credit, and a 13th ("Glad Rag Doll") due out Oct. 2, she is – as they say – not getting older, she's getting better.

Krall, accompanied by a tight combo, showed off her still-maturing virtuosity in a romantic, sensuous set on the Thunder Valley Casino Resort Amphitheatre stage Saturday evening. The warm, late-summer breezes seemed appropriate for the bossa nova-rich set list heavily influenced by her 2009 album "Quiet Nights."

Dressed casually in a three-quarter-sleeve, butterfly-print top and jeans, and sporting gold-framed, round-lensed Ray-Bans to shield her eyes from stage lights, Krall delivered her dreamy, delicious songs with a mix of steam and sex that enraptured and captivated the amphitheatre's concertgoers.

Krall's world tour continues Tuesday with a performance at the Turlock Community Theatre, before heading to the Hanford Fox Theatre (Aug. 22), and a two-night engagement at the Hollywood Bowl (Aug. 24-25). To view future tour stops, click here.
