Overview

While vocalist/pianist Krall sometimes takes it on the chin for being too understated, I'll take her whisper over the blare of most big-belting divas any day. When I Look In Your Eyes somehow manages a stark lushness even when thickened by arranger Johnny Mande's pasteled strings. Krall's delivery has become quite authoritative of late. While the minimalism of her vocal lines and trio music may exude polish, her emotional commitment can always be felt bubbling just below the surface. There's obviously much more than mood at work in her reading of the title cut, a ballad whose depth is heightened by the song's lovely voice, guitar, and muted strings arrangement.Similarly, the lithe bossa of "Let's Face the Music and Dance" almost equals the cool-headed commitment of the style's Brazilian masters. And anyone who thinks the singer's not in touch with her suggestive side needs to bask in the eloquent lust of Gershwin's "Do It Again." For an extended moment, Krall squelches all charges of prudishness with a mere purr of sensuality.
