Artist of the WEEK 6-28

Diana Krall, is a Canadian jazz pianist and singer. She is known for her contralto vocals.

In 1993, Krall released her first album, Stepping Out, which she recorded with John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton. It caught the attention of producer Tommy LiPuma, who produced her second album, Only Trust Your Heart (1995).

Her third album, All for You: A Dedication to the Nat King Cole Trio (1996), was nominated for a Grammy and continued for 70 weeks in the Billboard jazz charts. Love Scenes (1997) quickly became a hit record with the trio of Krall, Russell Malone (guitar) and Christian McBride (bass).

In August 2000, Krall was paired on a 20-city tour with Tony Bennett. They were paired again for a song on the TV series Spectacle: Elvis Costello.

In September 2001, Krall began a world tour.

In 1999, she was awarded as Best Jazz Musician of the Year.

After marrying Elvis Costello, she worked with him as a lyricist and started to compose her own songs, resulting in the album The Girl in the Other Room. The album, released in April 2004, quickly rose to the top five in the United Kingdom and made the Australian top 40 album charts.

Krall and Elvis Costello were married on December 6, 2003. Their twin sons Dexter Henry Lorcan and Frank Harlan James, were born December 6, 2006 in New York City.
