1999 Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl Double LP!
Grammy-nominated vocalist/pianist's Verve debut features orchestrations by
Johnny Mandel and production by Tommy LiPuma.
If artistry is about growth, then count Diana Krall as one of jazz's consummate
artists. When I Look In Your Eyes is yet another step ahead for the
vocalist/pianist. This gorgeous Verve release breaks away from the standard
piano trio setting of her two previous releases; several of the album's cuts
feature the graceful orchestrations of maestro Johnny Mandel.
"I hadn't thought about making an album with strings until Johnny Mandel
called," Krall admits. "I still wanted to do more with my trio and
quartet, and I wasn't really comfortable with a complete switchover. So to me,
this is the best of both worlds: the Diana Krall trio with Johnny Mandel
orchestrating some of the tunes."
The Canadian-born Krall cites Mandel's previous work with Frank Sinatra (Ring A
Ding Ding!) and Claus Ogerman's Joao Gilberto session (Amoroso) as inspirations
for the work on this album.
The songs on When I Look In Your Eyes range from the playful "Popsicle Toes" to
the seductive "Do It Again." The album also features Krall's interpretations of
such standards as "Let's Face the Music and Dance," "I Can't Give You Anything
But Love," "Devil May Care," and a bossa nova reworking of "I've Got You Under
When I Look In Your Eyes features Krall on piano and vocals with long-time trio
mate Russell Malone on guitar. Ben Wolfe and John Clayton share bass duties and
Jeff Hamilton and Lewis Nash alternate on drums. The album was produced by
Grammy-winner and Verve Music Group Chairman Tommy LiPuma, with some tracks
being co-produced by LiPuma and Mandel. It was recorded by Al Schmitt.
