Hear Diana Krall's exclusive WBGO: Singers Unlimited session

Bookmark and Share

Early in her musical career, in the ‘90s, Diana Krall played a regular gig on Saturday evenings in Boston. When she drove down to New York City on Sunday mornings, she'd plan the trip so she could get close enough to hear the FM signal of WBGO in time to hear Singers Unlimited. She's been hearing herself playing piano and singing ever since on WBGO.

Nowadays, she can listen to wbgo.org during her travels around the world or in her hometown, Nanaimo, British Columbia. "I listen to you all the time," she said when she came in for a recent session with a killer band, featuring frequent quartet-mate Anthony Wilson on guitar, along with bassist Robert Hurst, drummer Karriem Riggins and violinist Stuart Duncan. They played songs from Diana's new release, Turn Up The Quiet, which is a virtual comeback to straight-ahead jazz after the contemporary pop foray of her previous album, Wallflower.

Diana Krall's world tour kicks off today in Minneapolis. She appears at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center on June 16, and at the Beacon Theater in New York on June 21. You can hear her session throughout WBGO's Singer's Unlimited on Sunday, June 11. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN
