She will surely provide us with many more talented interpretations, recordings and concerts in the years to come. Diana Krall Trio performed on “1. Jazz Festival” in Split, in front of full auditorium of Croatian National Theatre, making it a night to remember. Diana, Russel Malone and Ben Wolfe showed deep level of relation in band resulted in tight and clean sound that captured audiences attention from the first note played until end of performance. Blond and young Canadian played piano with great timing, supporting her smoky, but bright voice. Although, performing mostly ballads from “Love Scenes”, Diana Krall never sounded sentimental, but strong and persuasive involving all listeners in experience we will hardly heard in Split for a long time.
Grown on the foundations of great jazz-legends of past Diana Krall is still developing her piano play and her voice invokes memories of jazz in times when more of such female pianist-singer practiced their mastership.

From there, Diana studied with bassist Ray Brown and became a presen ce on the New York/Boston jazz scene, commuting back and forth between gigs that really let her cut her teeth. Her career has since skyrocketed garnering respect and admiration from critics and jazz fans and winning awards and honours, including a 1996 Grammy Award nomination for Best Jazz Vocalist."
