  1. There may be a bit too much classic good taste on Quiet Nights--there is no reinterpretation, only homage--but that's not quite a problem because Krall knows enough to lay back, to never push, only to glide upon the gossamer surface.
  2. The line between dreamy and sleepy is a fine one, and many jazz singers have fallen on the wrong side of it when attempting bossa nova. Diana Krall, however, negotiates it skillfully on Quiet Nights, her first album of all bossas.
  3. Ogerman might be the only arranger alive who can make an overstuffed orchestra sound so distant and wistful, and Krall, suddenly channeling Julie London, is the taciturn symphony's whispery match.
