Quiet Nights With Diana Krall
UMe reports: Diana Krall's twelfth album, Quiet Nights, hits stores on March 31st. Here is a little about it: Some music is intended to paint a romantic scene a candlelit dinner, a walk along a moonlit beach. Quiet Nights 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." - more on this story

. U2 Month: Passengers - Original Soundtracks 1
When U2 became the alternative to what is on the radio, as they did during grunge, they are a perfect balance of what makes them a great rock band, as well as what makes them great creative artists. Much of that comes from a willingness to fall flat on their faces. - Read the full U2 Month: Passengers - Original Soundtracks 1 review
