Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, her albums have garnered five Grammy Awards, eight Juno® Awards and have also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most acclaimed artists of our time.
Krall recently wrapped the second leg of her North American tour with two incredible nights at The Hollywood Bowl in August, along with a stellar performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Krall and her familiar band of Anthony Wilson (guitar), Karriem Riggins (drums), Robert Hurst (bass) and Stuart Duncan (fiddle) have been entertaining audiences with material from Krall’s latest album, Turn Up The Quiet, during this North American tour. The album holds significant importance because it was the last recording Krall made with her long-time mentor and collaborator, producer Tommy LiPuma, and it is dedicated to his memory.
Earning critical praise, MOJO Magazine called the new album "spectacular" and said Krall was in “top form.” People Magazine said, “Diana Krall's new music will have fans falling for her all over again.”
