There are a lot of positive and good things to say about Diana Krall‘s new album "Turn Up The Quiet". First and foremost, the title says it all: she DOES turn up the quiet, with ample help from legendary engineer Al Schmitt and equally legendary producer, the late Tommy LiPuma. Diana's voice is recorded with the utter most intimacy, right in your face with each breath audible as if she is directly in front of you. Sometimes it is more like a slight little breeze that turns out to be her singing, like on "Isn't It Romantic". Stefon Harris graces the tune with his vibes and the phat orchestration is once again from the brain of the king of orchestrators, Alan Broadbent. And the band! Christian McBride‘s thick and robust bass opens "Like Someone In Love" before Russell Malone sets in with his striding guitar.
