Tuesday's music tip - Diana Krall, "from this moment on"

From This Moment On is the tenth and latest album by Canadian jazz pianist and vocalist Diana Krall. It was nominated for Best Jazz Album at the 2007 Grammy Awards.

Krall's secret of success is the combination of great lyrics and the skills in terms of timing of a great piano-player. You can feel that every syllable is in the right place at the right time, all the time.

My personal favorite, although a bit slow, is "Little Girl Blue". The lyrics are great and the delicate whispering with a classic track just make me want to listen to it again and again.
If you ever had the chance to see her live, you'd know the almost intriguing intimacy of her performance that makes you feel like you are the only listener in the whole room.

But there are also faster tracks like "Day In and Day Out" which feel lighthearted and remind me of the late Count Basie with a piano tinkling over a chugging guitar.
