Soulful Sundays: Diana Krall

The first time I heard Canadian singer/songwriter Diana Krall, her voice made me think of someone from another generation not someone who was born in 1964. I loved her voice and phrasing — I was hooked. I bought her CDs as soon as they were released and played them over and over.

Ms. Krall has recorded about a dozen CDs. She’s had nine Grammy Award nominations and won three.

Take a listen to her performance of Wonderful, Marvelous and let me know what you think.

It\’s Wonderful

  1. Oh, I saw this video this morning and I do like Ms Krall. Will have to stalk Amazon for her CD. Thanks!

  2. I’m a huge fan of Diana Krall’s music but had no idea she was Canadian. This is a great song. Your site is beautiful. Love the photos and the look of it. Like good jazz, it has style!

  3. You’re welcome, Totsy.
    Interestingly enough, I was going to feature Sarah Vaughn but Diana kept coming back to me so went with her instead. Funny, eh?
    Thanks for visiting,

  4. Yup, she’s Canadian. Born in Vancouver — near your neck of the woods, eh?
    Thanks, Monica. And thanks for that compliment. I just uploaded this new theme, still trying to figure it out and take advantage of its bells and whistles. I have no programming experience so I’m figuring it out as I go so I’m thrilled that you like it.
    Thanks for visiting,

  5. Hey Tony, glad you like Diana.
    Thanks — still working on it, slowly figuring out what’s what. Glad you like it.
    Talk later,

  6. She is an amazing singer… I thought the same thing when I first heard her sing and, like you, I heard the music before I saw her or knew anything about her… She is awesome.
    BTW, I think I have now subscribed to your blog. I will see if anything shows up in my email. 🙂 Also, I gave you a shout out today. 🙂

  7. Isn’t she? Especially for someone so young. I don’t know about you but when I hear people like her, Jackie Evancho, etc., it just bolsters my belief in reincarnation. How else could they have their gifts at such an age or sound like they’re older?
    Great! I tried it out and it works — let me know if it does on your end.
    Thanks for the shout out, Elizabeth. I’ll head over a little later.

  8. Yes, the email subscription button works! I’m in agreement on the reincarnation bit… old souls in new bodies. 🙂

  9. I have to admit it has taken a while for me to warm to this singer. It must be old age (hehehe) but I really like her now. Soulful indeed.

  10. Yes, she is.
    I felt the same about Norah Jones but now I really love her! I think I know what it is, in my case. At the time, everyone was talking about her and her music was everywhere — there was just too much noise. I like listening to music in quiet so I can really hear what a singer is saying, listen to the instruments hear how they communicate the message. When there’s a lot of hype and noise, I tune out.
    Thanks for visiting, Narelle,

  11. Thanks, Tony!
    I was thinking about you a day or so ago. I think I have an idea for a post for your music blog — if you’re interested. I saw some of my photos from Barcelona and remembered that we saw Chicago while we were there. Or I could send you something on one of the other concerts I’ve been to. Let me know,

  12. Hi Marcia, apologies for delay in replying, I’ve only just verified my disqus account. A review of Chigaco in Barcelona would be great, thanks!

  13. I’m not sure it’d be a review since it happened so long ago. Does it matter when it happened? Let me know,
