Info zu This Dream Of You

Ein neues Album von Diana Krall ist immer ein Ereignis. Auf keinem ihrer bisherigen Werke kam man der Sängerin und Pianistin vielleicht so nah wie auf "This Dream Of You", dem Album, das die Künstlerin jetzt für den 25. September angekündigt hat. Das hat eine besondere Entstehungsgeschichte.

Als die junge Diana Krall 1994 bei der Aufnahme ihres zweiten Albums "Only Trust Your Heart" das erste Mal mit Produzentenlegende Tommy LiPuma zusammenarbeitete, fühlte sie sich wie im siebten Himmel. Schnell wurde ihr klar, dass sie keineswegs nur ihrem eigenen Herzen, sondern auch Tommy LiPuma vertrauen konnte. Die außergewöhnlich enge, fast schon intime Kollaboration zwischen Krall und LiPuma sollte in den folgenden fünfzehn Jahren noch neun weitere Alben hervorbringen. Darunter Millionenseller und Grammy-prämierte Alben wie "When I Look In Your Eyes", "The Look Of Love" und "Quiet Nights". Zuletzt bildeten sie 2016/17 ein Team für die Aufnahme von "Turn On The Quiet". Kurz bevor das Album herauskam, verstarb Tommy LiPuma allerings am 13. März 2017 mit 80 Jahren. Umso erfreulicher ist es, jetzt zu erfahren, dass bei diesen letzten gemeinsamen Sessions noch genügend Material für ein prall gefülltes zweites Album mitgeschnitten werden konnte. Und das bringt die kanadische Sängerin und Pianistin unter dem Titel "This Dream Of You" heraus.

"Es ist weit davon entfernt, ein Album mit Outtakes oder gar unvollendeter Musik zu sein", unterstreicht Diana Krall. "Denn es unterscheidet sich wesentlich von dem Album 'Turn Up The Quiet', das ursprünglich aus diesen Sessions hervorgegangen ist. Das zeigte ein anderes Bild in einem einem anderen Rahmen." Für ihr kommendes Album hat Diana Krall Perlen zusammengestellt, die vielleicht ein wenig leiser und intimer ausgefallen sind, dem Hörer dafür aber die Künstlerin ganz besonders nah bringen.

Das hängt sicher auch damit zusammen, dass Krall ihren Tonmeister Al Schmitt bat, die Aufnahmen anders abzumischen, um ihre Stimme näher ans Ohr der Hörer zu bringen. Tatsächlich hat man Diana Krall wohl noch nie zuvor so unmittelbar und direkt gehört wie hier.

"This Dream Of You" ist eine Sammlung von Gassenhauern und bedient professionell die Erwartungshaltungen vieler Diana-Krall-Fans. Nicht mehr, aber auch nicht weniger." (Jazzthing)

Some music is intended to paint a romantic scene – a candlelit dinner, a walk along a moonlit beach. Quiet Nights – Diana Krall’s twelfth album – ain’t about that. Using Brazil as a musical point of reference, the award-winning pianist and singer is not suggesting a night out; she means to stay in.

“It's not coy. It's not ‘peel me a grape,’ little girl stuff. I feel this album’s very womanly – like you're lying next to your lover in bed whispering this in their ear.”

She’s not kidding. From Krall’s refreshing version of “Where or When,” to an utterly soul-stilling rendition of “You’re My Thrill,” the ten songs on Quiet Nights are disarming in their intimacy. Even those already familiar with the breathy vocals and rhythmic lilt in Krall’s music – and now there are millions – will be taken aback by just how far the music pushes, unabashedly, into the realm of sweet surrender. “It’s a sensual, downright erotic record and it's intended to be that way.”

Krall is the first to credit the musical team she assembled – her loyal quartet, ace producer Tommy LiPuma, engineer Al Schmitt plus legendary arranger Claus Ogerman – for much of the seductive power on Quiet Nights. But there’s a deeper, palpable sense of maturity that she brought to the recording as well. “Most of my singing and playing on the album is really just first or second takes. ‘You're My Thrill,’ was a second take – “Too Marvelous,” first take.”

“She’s completely matured,” says Tommy LiPuma, who should know, having first worked with Krall in 1994. “Even in the past few years. She approaches her vocal phrasing much more like an instrumentalist than a straight singer. It’s in her reading of the lyrics, and the timbre of her voice, much more misty like Peggy Lee in her mature period.” (“I didn't want to over sing -- I was drawing also from Julie London very strongly on this album,” Krall confesses, noting that such influences are not always conscious on her part. “It just came out that way.”)

As such, the Brazilian focus of Krall’s new album could not have been a more natural next step. “She's been very sympathetic to this music for a long time,” notes LiPuma. “When we did The Look of Love, we were very much leaning in the bossa nova direction. Quiet Nights is really a celebration of this music. Diana sings three Brazilian classics, she rhythmically turned four standards into that style, and three ballads. So really there are ten songs on the album of which seven are just straight up bossa novas.”

It makes sense that Quiet Nights (also the English name of the bossa nova classic “Corcovado” that is the title track) draws much of its musical spirit from the land that puts the “carnal” into its annual Carnaval celebration. “I was inspired to do this record because of my trip last year to Brazil,” says Krall, who returned to Rio de Janeiro to shoot a concert for a new DVD release. “Then I just kept going back and found that everywhere you go you still hear the sounds of Jobim and bossa nova.”

For those who may not remember or weren’t yet around, Brazil’s bossa nova wave (literally “new bump” or “new way” in Portuguese) was the widely popular musical style, based on the country’s traditional samba rhythms, that swept up from the sidewalk cafes of Rio in the early ‘60s and seduced the entire planet with its hypnotic, swaying beats, sultry melodies, and new, exciting harmonies – all with generous room for jazz improvisation. Antonio Carlos Jobim (who composed “Quiet Nights” and “The Girl from Ipanema”) and Joao Gilberto (“Este Seu Olhar”) are two of the pioneers of the music, revered as national heroes in Brazil to this day.

Fifteen years later, she can look back over a stellar career path: in ’99, signed to Verve, her career exploded when When I Look in Your Eyes won a GRAMMY® for best jazz vocal and became the first jazz disc to be nominated for Album of the Year in twenty-five years. In 2002, The Look of Love was a #1 bestseller in the US and a five-time platinum album in Canada. 2004’s The Girl in the Other Room, was her first to focus on her own songwriting (with six tunes co-written with husband Elvis Costello); 2005’s Christmas Songs proved one of the season’s best-sellers; and 2006’s From This Moment On was an upbeat, critical success that coincided with the birth of her twin sons – a life-affirming event that LiPuma feels enhanced Krall’s continuing growth as a musician. “Motherhood definitely agrees with her—and marriage. I think she's really come into her own.”

As moving as Quiet Nights is -- deriving from Krall’s feelings for Brazil and bossa novas – the singer is not shy in admitting that its sensuality is as much about her home life. “It’s my love letter to my husband – just an intimate, romantic album.” As they say in Rio – obrigado!
