Diana Krall  Vocal, Piano Russell Malone  Guitar Christian McBride  Bass Tommy LiPuma  Producer Johnny Mandel  Producer Al Schmitt  Engineer, Mixed Engineer Winner of multiple accolades at the Smooth Jazz awards, and a 2003 Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal, Diana Krall's career has taken off in a sensational fashion. Now relive some of her earlier work, as she presents this DVD-Audio release of her 1999 album "When I Look In Your Eyes." Tracks include "Devil May Care," "Let's Fall In Love," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and more. Recorded at Avatar Studios, New York, New York. WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES won the 2000 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance and for Best Engineered Album, Non Classical. WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES was nominated for the 2000 Grammy Award for Album Of The Year. WHEN I LOOK IN YOUR EYES, a 1999 Verve release, heralds the return of the cool and groovy Latin-tinged jazz of the '60s. Upon hearing the opening track, a bossa-nova-fied version of Irving Berlin's "Let's Face The Music And Dance," one might think he had accidentally put on a Getz/Gilberto record. In fact, it's hard to avoid comparing Krall's breathy alto to that of Astrud Gilberto-particularly on the more samba-flavored numbers. But Krall ultimately resists comparisons. Her simultaneously textured and smooth tone, warm timbre, and conversational phrasing mark her as unique. The set of standards here, including "Let's Fall In Love," "I've Got You Under My Skin," and "Pick Yourself Up" among others, is enhanced by fine session musicians and Johnny Mandel's tasteful arrangements. While Krall is more than comfortable with a sly swing (Michael Franks' "Popsicle Toes"), it is the stirring ballads-like the title track-that show her skill to best advantage. Krall is a considerable talent, and the time-tested, well-loved sound that characterizes these tracks should ensure her success.  This platinum selling album marks Diana's first break from the piano trio and includes several tracks backed with beautiful orchestrations arranged by Johnny Mandel. When I Look in You Eyes also features some of Diana's best know recordings including "Let's Face The Music and Dance" and "I've Got You Under my Skin" PRODUCED BY TOMMY LiPUMA Tracks1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 PRODUCED BY TOMMY LiPUMA AND JOHNNY MANDEL Arranged by Johnny Mandel and Conducted by Eddie Karam and Johnny Mandel Recorded and Mixed by Al Schmitt Small ensemble arrangements by Diana Krall and The Diana Krall Trio/Quartet except tracks 1, 3, 10, 11, and 12 co-arranged by John Clayton and Diana Krall.
