Personalities | Diana Krall | Contemporary Era | Jazz & Blues

(Vocals, piano, b. 1964)

From western Canada, Diana Krall attended Berklee School of Music, was encouraged to sing by Los Angeles-based pianist-singer Jimmy Rowles and was mentored by bassist Ray Brown. Her first trios, co-led by guitarist Russell Malone, emulated Nat ‘King’ Cole’s. Her accessible stylings led to international festival tours, bestselling recordings and increasingly nuanced vocal shadings. In 2004 Krall married British singer-songwriter Elvis Costello and released her first album of all-original material.
