Diana Krall Tickets for Sale

Singer/pianist Diana Krall got her musical education when she was growing up in Nanaimo, British Columbia, from the classical piano lessons she began at age four and in her high school jazz band, but mostly from her father, a stride piano player with an extensive record collection. 'I think Dad has every recording Fats Waller ever made,' she said, 'and I tried to learn them all.' Krall attended the Berklee College of Music on a music scholarship in the early '80s, then moved to Los Angeles, where she lived for three years before moving to Toronto. By 1990, she was based in New York, performing with a trio and singing. After releasing her first album on Justin Time Records, Krall was signed to GRP for her second, Only Trust Your Heart and transferred to its Impulse! division for her third, a Nat 'King' Cole Trio tribute album called All for You. Love Scenes followed in 1997, and in late 1998, she issued the seasonal Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. When I Look in Your Eyes followed in 1999. Whatever notoriety Krall had earned over the years for her work exploded with this album, which became an international best-seller and earned her a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. It also was the first jazz album to be nominated for Album of the Year in twenty-five years. Krall's crossover success followed her as she performed in the Lilith Fair the following year and her songs cropped up everywhere from episodes of Sex in the City to films like Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. In 2001 she released The Look of Love. The album topped the Billboard charts and went quintuple platinum in Canada, the first by a Canadian jazz artist to do so. The Look of Love also helped Krall win three Juno awards in 2002, taking home awards for Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Best Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Two years later, Krall issued The Girl In The Other Room. Covering a few standards, this album included original material for the first time in her career.

Her playing attracted the attention of bass player Ray Brown who brought her into touch with influential teachers and producers. At age seventeen, she won a scholarship from Vancouver Jazz Festival to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. After three terms she moved to Los Angeles to study with Jimmy Rowels, with whom she also began to sing. In 1990, Krall relocated to New York.

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, For You (1996) was nominated for the 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).

Orchestral arrangements by Jonny Mandel provided the background on When I Look In Your Eyes (1999); more Grammy nominations came along, and she was rewarded as Best Jazz Musician of the Year. The band mix was kept, following arrangements on The Look Of Love (2001) created by Claus Ogerman; this record achieved platinum status and reached the top 10 of the Billboard 200. The Look of Love went to number one on the Canadian album charts and went quadruple platinum in that country. The title track from the album reached number 22 on the adult contemporary chart.

In September 2001, Krall began a world tour started. Her concert at the 'Paris Olympia' was recorded and released as her first live record. Diana Krall - Live in Paris topped the Billboard jazz charts, went top 20 on the Billboard 200 and went top 5 in Canada. It garnered her second Grammy (Best Vocal Jazz Record) and a Juno Award.

In December 2003, she married Elvis Costello. Under his influence, she started to write and compose on her own; together they made an album The Girl in the Other Room which was released in April 2004, and quickly rose to the Top 5 in the UK, the Australian top 40 album charts. 'Temptation', a cover of the Tom Waits song off his Frank's Wild Years album of 1987 reached number 1 of the World Jazz Charts (based on the US, Germany, France, Japan and China) and reached the US Top 40 on the pop charts.
