Review by Pieter Hofmann
Her jazz is seductive -- though, granted, not extremely adventurous -- and Krall understands the importance of a tune. Her selection of material on Love Scenes is impeccable.
Following last year's All for You, a dedication to the Nat King Cole Trio, Love Scenes further explores the theme of love with satisfying results. Augmented by the first class playing of Russell Malone on guitar and Christian McBride on acoustic bass, Krall's piano playing is a smooth velvet glove of notes.
Her renditions of "Peel Me a Grape" and "I Miss You So" are particularly warm, while the 1932 Bing Crosby chestnut, "I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You" is pure seduction. Not a dud on this one.
