Diana Krall

JAY HORTON
8 pm, Tuesday April 15 | $69.50-$89.50.
 

[LAST CENTURY'S MODEL] Nearing two decades as the Western world's pre-eminent smooth-jazz chanteuse and pianist—or, at least, the only one your mother is likely to have heard—Diana Krall has sold an all-things-considered baffling number of records merely polishing the most familiar chestnuts of the Great American Songbook. While Krall's lone attempt at embracing modernity, 2004's The Girl in the Other Room, met critical and commercial shrugs, her most recent recording, Glad Rag Doll, enlivened the formula by leaning further backward to interpret an obscure bounty of favored Jazz Age 78s. Alongside typically rough and resonant production by T-Bone Burnett, the forgotten ditties add a welcome bounce to an estimable repertoire.
