Diana Krall set for Madison's Overture Center / Wisconsin Gazette

As someone who improvises both in music and in life, jazz pianist Diana Krall considers herself a lucky person. Such luck - and considerable talent - have powered the Canadian chanteuse's stellar career as one of the world's leading jazz performers. "I am not much of a planner," Krall, 52, admits during a telephone interview from her home on Vancouver Island. "I just surround myself with players who are the best at what they do, and I am lucky because I get to do all kinds of things." Those "things" include both jazz standards and treatments of pop numbers she frequently performs, and her latest album Turn Up the Quiet, released May 5, features a cross section of them.

Krall launches a massive two-and-one-half-year tour June 2 in Minneapolis. It boasts 79 North American and European dates in 2017 alone. Krall and her combo will be making stops June 3 at Madison's Overture Center for the Arts and June 4 at Milwaukee's Riverside Theater.  READ THE FULL Wisconsin Gazette ARTICLE
