9 DAYS TIL JAZZFEST!! – An Evening With Diana Krall

Greetings Jazzians!

Wow, just 9 more days to go until the Tri-C Jazzfest! Are you ready?  Do you have your tickets yet? Some of the concerts still have a few seats left, while others, like Esperanza Spalding, are completely SOLD OUT.  Yay!

April 28, 2012 at 8:00 pm – Playhouse Square

If you have never heard Diana Krall, you have missed a treat in your life.  Her voice is melodically delicious, and she plays the piano beautifully!  Diana Krall is one of the best-selling artists of her time, topping every other female jazz artist in the last two decades.

With more than 15 million albums sold, she is the only jazz singer to have had eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums.  A winner of three Grammys and eight Juno Awards, the Canada native has earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.  Her stellar quartet includes Robert Hurst (bass), Anthony Wilson (guitar) and Karriem Riggins (drums).

In her concert, “An Evening with Diana Krall”, you will experience the richness of her vocals and lyrics as well as the skilled musicians within her quartet.  She is a quality artist, whose sound it true to life: what you hear, is what you heard.

Tri-C Jazzfest, now in it’s 33rd year, is the Largest Jazz festival presented by an educational institution, and most definitely the largest in the Midwest.  They are presenting 10 days of Jazz: Education, History, special presentations and tributes, and some of the finest representations in the Jazz genre in concert.  The venues are spread over the downtown Cleveland to East Cleveland areas, are all RTA accessible, and very affordable [free to $85 dependent upon the event].

In this age of technolgy, live musicianship was becoming nearly extinct.  Fortunately, while it has been infused in by some more progressive artists, Jazz has remained for the most part the pure, disciplined yet unstructured, freestyle form of musical expression as when it began. April 19-29, Cleveland will be filled with the sounds of live instrumentation and incredible vocals.  Be sure to stop by the Tri-C website [www.tricpresents.com] and purchase your tickets to Diana Krall, as well as the other fine artists shows.  You will NOT be disappointed.

See You There!

    I had never heard Diana Krall before. It was a pleasure to encounter her for the first time last night. She’s smooth as a pianist and a vocalist. I liked the tribute to Tommy and Dr. Sue’s presentation as well. Diana mixed it up. She did make you feel like you were in her living room. She’s impressive. Great show. Would see her again. Thanks Neo for this wonderful opp to give feedback on the phenominal job Tri-C Jazzfest is doing with the concert this year. Would love to hear you sing!!!

    • Yeah, I like her voice. It has a nice smoke to it, a lot darker than I really knew. I had only heard a few songs, and didn’t research so that I would fully appreciate it.

      I have one last performance in Cleveland on May 9 at Executive Lounge at 9pm. It’s an open mic spot, so I will sing and do Poetry. If you can come out, please do!
