And she can play pretty good too!
Today's Countdown Tune gives us Krall showing her virtuosity and scatting abilities with The Clayton Hamilton Jazz Orchestra - No. 10 on The 2016 Christmas Countdown - Diana Krall with Jingle Bells.
We had the pleasure of seeing the multiple Grammy winning Diana Krall, one of the the top female jazz singers and pianists today, at the world class music venue, The Laura Turner Concert Hall at the Shemerhorn Symphony Center, in Nashville several years ago. Her appreciation and understanding of the history of jazz and its most accomplished contributors is very impressive. She brings all of that history into play with a very modern, contemporary approach to jazz. With a smooth, edgy contralto voice and elegant keyboarding - Well - Like they say in some circles - The girl can flat out sang AND play! She's also married to Elvis Costello. I'm not sure I get that, but, whatever works, right?
Merry Merry Jingle Jingle - Only ten days left!
