Diana Krall came exclusively for a concert at the Thurn und Taxis Schlossfestspiele to Regensburg in July 2019. Her voice is sometimes gentle and sensual, sometimes harsh and sexy, but always unmistakable – Diana Krall sings rock pop songs and sultry ballads, velvety jazz and candle-light swing that gets under your skin. For many years she has easily crossed all genre boundaries. Diana Krall covers the great hits of the 70s by Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney and Elton John – but also newer songs like “Temptation” by Tom Waits or “Do not Dream It’s Over” by Crowded House. With her surprising, expressive improvisations on the piano, the blonde Canadian grants the audience a glimpse into her soul and hits the audience right in the heart. The “First Lady of Jazz” – as she likes to be called – is not a diva. With her band, she repeatedly creates this unique mix of suspenseful arrangements and melodic harmony.
Diana Krall and the legendary Tony Bennett have just released a duet album with classics by George Gershwin. Time and again, she also works with her husband Elvis Costello – and with Jamie Cullum, the “Sunnyboy” of jazz, she likes to meet for piano sessions.
