    This review contains spoilers. After seeing Diana Krall at Radio City Music Hall and listening to her music at my wedding, I waited for her concert in Miami April 2, 2013 with great anticipation. The concert was very disappointing. The cartoonish silent movie background, the out-of-place fiddler, the excessive number of band numbers, seemed all part of a design to mask her own unremarkable performance. Her singing was pathetic, and her piano playing was lacking. The song selection assured that her voice would not be heard, and the Neil Young and Bob Dylan songs (the two worst male singers in recent times) were certainly challenging for her (insert sarcasm). Before the marriage to a mediocre 1980's pop/rock artist, Diana Krall's stage presence and artistic performance were magnificent, however, his influence has overshadowed her artistic aura and she has become less an artist than what she once was. The concert was not a Diana Krall performance, it was a contrived show that made a mockery of her and those who went to see it. Collapse

    Glad Rag Doll breaks intriguing new ground for a hitherto smooth operator. [Nov 2012, p.90]

    Some tracks still sound ripe for Christmas rom-coms. But the best see veteran producer T-Bone Burnett, Tom Wait's guitarist Marc Ribot and Krall's husband Elvis Costello rough up her seductive keys with some electric Americana fuzz. [Nov 2012, p.99]

    T-Bone Burnett renders mostly old jazz numbers with a blend of period feel and modern fidelity, so they're "in the tradition" without sounding antique.
