Diana Krall

LIVE: Diana Krall @ Wolf Trap - 6/21/12

Braving the a imminent storms, record setting heat and the threat of increased tolls, Diana Krall made it to Wolf Trap last Thursday, and by the looks of it brought a good portion of the District with her. Performing a mix of jazz standards, some choice more modern covers and her own material, Krall and her band made it clear from note one why she is an three time Grammy Award winner and has taken home Canada’s equivalent, the Juno Award, a total of eight times.

Working through tracks like “How Deep Is The Ocean (How High Is The Sky)”, off of her 1997 album  Love Scenes, and “You Call It Madness (But I Call It Love)” – one of a handful of Nat King Cole covers heard over the course of the evening – Krall and her trio of backing musicians brought the kind of sultry intensity to the Wolf Trap stage that one might expect to hear in the dark hollows of Chicago’s Green Mill or DC’s own HR-57. Throughout the evening they consistently delivered all of the heat and smolder one would expect, but left the smoke and haze behind.

TONIGHT!!! Diana Krall @ Wolf Trap!!!

Crazy from the heat DC? Well never fear because tonight one of the coolest acts around is heading to your neck of the woods. Best selling jazz pianist/vocalist Diana Krall will hit the stage at Wolf Trap tonight as her "Summer Nights" tour continues its trek across the country.

A musician since the age of four (COOL!) Krall has had a stellar career in which she's sold over 15 million records world wide (COOL!), won three Grammys (COOL!), eight Juno Awards (COOL, EH!), and was even named the second best jazz artist of the past ten years (TOTALLY COOL!). And somewhere in all of that she found time to get married to Elvis Costello, which is...do we have to say it?

Whether you are a longtime fan, total newbie, or simply an enjoyer of all things cool, it's going to be a great night to kick back, sink your toes in the green grass and enjoy an evening out under the stars with some friends and the immeasurable talents of Diana Krall.

Tickets are still available online and at the gates. We'll see you on the lawn at 8!
