Diana Krall

December 8 2017, 8:30 p.m. Diana Krall. Canadian singer, songwriter, and pianist - Diana Krall returns to Vancouver with her Turn Up the Quiet World Tour.. Event detailsNo other female artist has done more to keep jazz on pop culture's radar than modern day jazz legend Diana Krall. Between 2001 and 2012, the Canadian singer, songwriter, and pianist landed five consecutive studio albums in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart, an accomplishment unrivalled by her contemporaries in the genre. Revered for her impressive live concerts, Krall regularly performs covers of songs by artists like Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, and Neil Young, giving the material a signature jazzy twist that ticket buyers have come to know and love. Her sensual vocals and be-bop inspired piano style are perfectly suited for jazz standards and her self-penned songs, but on Glad Rag Doll, her T-Bone Burnett-produced 2012 album, Krall expanded her repertoire even further with covers of less well-known jazz and vaudeville songs from the 1920s and '30s.Krall began taking classical piano lessons when she was just four years old and attended the Berklee College of Music in the early '80s before moving to L.A. to pursue jazz. As a solo artist, she has sold more than 16 million albums, making her one of her era's top-selling artists of any genre. .. Event Details. Location: 630 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
