The Best of Diana Krall

Updated on March 2, 2013

Diana Krall's sultry voice is the best jazz music I've ever heard!

Diana Krall was born in British Columbia and grew up singing around the piano with family. She loved the old jazz and blues songs from her father's record collection and began playing piano at the age of 4. She has gained world-wide notoriety since releasing her first CD in 1993 called, STEPPING OUT. She now travels the world doing live concerts. She has come a long way from her first gig in BC, playing piano at a local restaurant at the age of 15. She is married to Elvis Costello and has two little twin boys.

I love to play Diana Krall music when I have a dinner party. It sets a lovely mood. I have heard her music playing at a wedding reception once as well - very nice.

This lady is too great to be confined to the jazz genre; she transcends the genre in a 21st Century way.

Diana Krall

Jazz that appeals to non-jazz officionados

Diana Krall gets stuck in the jazz genre of music, but her sultry, soulful music crosses the boundaries of the jazz genre and appeals to those who prefer other genres as well. She delivers the sound of the 40s and 50s in a 21st Century package.

Diana studied piano with Jimmy Rowles in Las Angeles, CA. Jimmy Rowles became known as the jazz pianist for Ella Fitzgerald and Billy Holiday.
