Diana Krall

Chris Ingham, MOJO, 1999

SO EFFICIENT, SO all-pervasive has been Canadian pianist-singer Diana Krall's rise in the jazz world (and beyond, in sales terms), an American jazz magazine offered her the ultimate jazz ghetto snobster put-down by featuring her, alongside Keith Jarrett, in their most over-rated list. Now she’s getting features in the rock monthlies. "I always like to get involved where it’s about just music, and not about a certain genre." She used to be jazz, but she’s all right now. Boy, has she arrived.
