By any standard this five-time Grammy winning jazz pianist and vocalist is one of the most accomplished and distinctive musicians in the world today. Respected far and wide as a wildly successful recording and performing artist, Diana Krall remains a true musical force. At any given moment she could be producing Barbra Streisand's new album, serving as musical director and arranger for Paul McCartney or hitting the road for a good cause with Neil Young.
As the record shows, she has already done all that and much more. Along the way Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist of the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling and most beloved performers of her generation, one whose recordings thus far have earned her nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.
Krall's Grammy-nominated ninth studio effort, From This Moment On, was originally issued on Verve in 2006. Co-produced with longtime collaborator Tommy LiPuma, the sterling eleven-track set finds Diana working in a large ensemble and revisiting the Great American Songbook she made her name on in stunning fashion. From her lived in interpretations of ballads like "Little Girl Blue" and "Willow Weep for Me" through to the big swinging "Come Dance with Me," From This Moment is yet another master class release from Krall that has appealed to music lovers far and wide.
