5 times Grammy and 8 times Juno Award winner Diana Krall will bring her Turn Up The Quiet tour to Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier at Place Des Arts in Montreal on November 29th and 30th.
With her pre-bop piano style, cool but sensual singing, and fortuitously photogenic looks, Krall took the jazz world by storm in the late ’90s. By the turn of the century she was firmly established as one of the biggest sellers in jazz. Her 1996 album All For You was a Nat King Cole tribute that showed the singer/pianist’s roots, and since then she has stayed fairly close to that tradition-minded mode, with wildly successful results.
Krall got her musical education when she was growing up in Nanaimo, British Columbia, from the classical piano lessons she began at age four and in her high-school jazz band, but mostly from her father, a stride piano player with an extensive record collection. “I think Dad has every recording Fats Waller ever made,” she said, “and I tried to learn them all.”
In 2003, Krall married iconic British rock musician Elvis Costello. A year later, she issued The Girl in the Other Room. Covering a few standards, this album also included original material — some co-written by Costello — for the first time in her career.
Her latest album was released on May 5th this year. Watch Diana Krall talk in depth about her inspiration and process in the video below.
