Wow man!!!!!!!!Diana Krall's luxuriously flexible alto adorns the classic songs of romance and longing found on Love Scenes with a clear aura of glamour. Her apparently natural command of phrasing and intonation, whether the mood is seduction or a sweet sassiness, further supports the general view that the Canadian vocalist-pianist possesses one of the great female jazz voices to surface on this earth. Accompanied by the expert instrumentation from bassist and guitarist (Christian McBride and Russell Malone, these cats are masters!), Krall sustains a largely quiet ambience throughout this CD's. In “How Deep Is the Ocean (How High Is the Sky)," Krall displays her skills as a competent jazz pianist. Anyone in search of an album ideal for watching city lights at 2 a.m. should keep Love Scenes in mind.
