Like a mink draped over mahogany, Diana Krall's luxuriously supple alto adorns the vintage songs of romance and longing found on Love Scenes with a palpable aura of glamour and late night cool. Her ostensibly effortless command of phrasing and intonation, whether the mood is seduction or a sweet sassiness, further fortifies the opinion that the Canadian vocalist-pianist possesses one of the great female jazz voices to surface in the late 1990s. Augmented by spare but skilful instrumentation from bassist Christian McBride and guitarist Russell Malone, Krall sustains a largely quiet (though hardly sleepy) ambience throughout the CD's 12 selections, from Irving Berlin's "How Deep Is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky)", which she also uses as a showcase for her touch at the keyboard, to Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away from Me". Her swing is artfully subdued ("All or Nothing at All"), and her wry, expressive approach to "Peel Me a Grape" is pure charm. Yet Krall shines most luminously on languid gems such as "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You" and "Garden in the Rain". Anyone in search of an album ideal for watching city lights at 2 a.m. should keep Love Scenes in mind.
On LOVE SCENES, Diana Krall utilises the same trio format she used on her critically acclaimed ALL FOR YOU. And it's easy to understand why: the simple instrumentation Krall plusguitarist Russell Malone and bassist Chrisian McBride is the perfect setting for her sultry voice and relaxed piano playing. She offers 12 delightful interpretations of well chosen, romance related standards.
The three musicians have awonderful rapport (both Malone and McBride have played on previous Krall albums), and each tune exhibits an easy, effortless swing. Krall' s piano playing is sensitive and lyricalon the ballads, and right in the groove on the uptempo numbers. Malone's full, rich tone blends perfectly with Krall's piano accompaniment, and McBride's formidable bass playing punctuates the trio's every nuance on this drumless date.
