Cry Me A River

I don't know how familiar any of you are with Elvis Costello's wife, Diana Krall, but if you haven't heard her, you should take a few minutes to listen to this youtube video of her playing and singing Cry Me A River. She is wonderful! So much so in fact, that I just ordered The Very Best Of Diana Krall from amazon.com. In fact I ordered two copies, and plan on giving one as a gift to someone I care for very much.

Thank you Melissa, that was wonderful. I had not been familiar with her before, I plan to fix that!

Around these parts, since Diana Krall is from Nanaimo, BC, Elvis Costello is known as Diana Krall's husband. :)

She's an excellent singer and pianist. I only wish she'd do more real jazz -- she's great in small combos -- but hey, it works for her.

I've been a fan of hers for over ten years, even before she married one of my heroes. I agree with Veronique-- I prefer her work with small combos. The orchestra can be too much in large doses.

Beautiful voice, expressive pianist, and not at all hard to look at!
