#9] Diana Krall The Girl In The Other Room
Canadian jazz pianist/vocalist Diana Kralls adventurous CD, The Girl
in the Other Room, fuses songs by the likes of Joni Mitchell and Mose Allison
alongside tracks she co-wrote with her husband, Elvis Costello. While some
jazz purists might be tempted to cry foul, Kralls smoky voice and stark
interpretations should convincingly calm any potential critic. Once again,
the enigmatic artist proves that jazz can be popular music.
