Diana Krall Love Scenes

Catalog #IMPD233
compact disc, cassette
release date 8/26/1997
Impulse! Records
When my producer, Tommy LiPuma, and I were deciding on the songs for my newest CD, it never occurred to me that the songs we ultimately chose would be all about love. I selected songs that I personally liked, and that had a special meaning for me. However, as is often the case during the creative process, a connection among the songs just seemed to organically appear. The songs are indeed about romance. But to me there is a broader and more personal attachment to each of the songs than the standard definition of romantic love might imply. I think that these songs represent the strength of love, including the love of family and friends. But rather than describing my own thoughts about each song, it is my hope that all of you who listen to the music and read the lyrics will discover and imagine your own personal "love scenes" among the mountains, oceans, rain and gardens of these songs.

Diana Krall Only Trust Your Heart

Catalog #GRD9810
compact disc
release date 2/14/1995
GRP Records
Only Trust Your Heart is Diana's critically acclaimed debut on the GRP label and marks her first collaboration with GRAMMY-winning producer Tommy LiPuma.

(from the liner notes) Diana Krall recalls her first conversation with the great composer/arranger, Johnny Mandel, she told him that she was both a singer and a pianist. Mr. Mandel replied, "Oh, so you're a hyphenate! Are you a singer-pianist or a painist-singer?" Diana the singer needs Diana the pianist as an accompianist; but Diana the pianist wants to play. And they're both...I mean, she's both...that is, Diana Krall is an extraordinary new artist whether singing or plating or...both!
