Diana Krall - Live at the Montréal Jazz Festival
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Diana Krall - Live at the Montréal Jazz FestivalLess elegant than 2001’s sumptuous Live in Paris, Krall’s latest DVD is almost folksy by comparison. Where Paris featured stark lighting and formal attire, Montréal is all bright lights and blue jeans. But it’s a more relaxed and accessible performance, with plenty of overlapping shots, gentle dissolves and a gorgeous, birds-eye view of Krall’s keyboard work. Best of all, it leans heavily on fine Krall-Costello compositions like the tender “Narrow Daylight” and the melancholic, Joni Mitchell-influenced “Departure Bay.”
