Can y’all possibly comprehend the flawlessness of this woman in the pic? The fact that she’s 47 years old says it all. FORTY SEVEN YEARS OLD. That’s right lessers.
YOUR FAVES NEED TO SIT THEIR SAGGY ARSES DOWN.
Velvet voiced Canadian Jazz chanteuse extraordinaire Mizz Diana Krall will be releasing her 10th studio album ‘Glad Rag Doll‘ on September 25th. And I, for starters, am hyper-ventilating. A crucial observation? Krall ages backwards y’all.
The two-time Grammy winning songstress and pianist goes back to the 1920’s and 30’s on the T Bone Burnett-produced ‘Glad Rag Doll‘, her first release since 2009’s Bossa Nova influenced Billboard # 3 peaking ‘Quiet Nights”. The album, which I feel is a significant departure from Krall’s signature style, boasts of timeless classics like Gene Austin’s ‘Let It Rain‘, ‘Lonely Avenue‘ by Doc Pomus, Billy Hill’s ‘Prairie Lullaby‘ and Fred Fisher’s ‘There Ain’t No Sweet Man Worth The Salt Of My Tears‘. Check out the lyric video for Krall’s whimsically lush take on Buddy Miller’s ‘Wide River To Cross‘ right here :
Here’s the track-list of ‘Glad Rag Doll‘ :
1. We Just Couldn’t Say Goodbye (Woods)
2. There Ain’t No Sweet Man That’s Worth the Salt of My Tears (Fisher)
3. Just Like a Butterfly That’s Caught in the Rain (Dixon/Woods)
4. You Know I Know Ev’rything’s Made for Love (Sherman/Tobias/Johnson)
5. Glad Rag Doll (Ager/Dougherty/Yellen)
6. I’m A Little Mixed Up (James/Johnson)
7. Prairie Lullaby (Hill)
8. Here Lies Love (Rainger/Robin)
9. I Used to Love You But It’s All Over Now (von Tilzer/Brown)
10. Let it Rain (Kendis/Dyson)
11. Lonely Avenue (Pomus)
12. Wide River to Cross (Miller/Miller)
13. When the Curtain Comes Down (Hoefle/Lewis/Sherman)
Personally, I’d prefer Krall re-creating another ‘The Girl In The Other Room‘ (2004) or ‘The Look Of Love‘ (2001) – undoubtedly two of the best records from her extensive discography, dating back to her 1993 début ‘Stepping Out‘. But then again, there’s literally nothing out there that Diana Krall’s signature Contralto cannot do justice to – and ‘Glad Rag Doll‘, irrespective of being a collection of songs that might come across as a tad obscure, should shine through.
