On this salute to pianist/vocalist extraordinaire Cole, Diana Krall has a lot to live up to, presenting a group of compositions that are ingrained in the public's memory as part of a lasting legacy of both jazz and pop music. It's to her credit that she went about this intimidating task with a resourcefulness and quiet grace that make the album an exceptional tribute.

The bulk of this album features Krall in an appropriately unadorned trio setting, and it captures the essence of the Cole trio's arrangements without resorting to slavish imitation. With guitarist Russell Malone and bassist Paul Keller, Krall swings hard on 'I'm An Errand Girl For Rhythm' and 'Hit That Jive Jack' often employing Cole trio devices such as repeated unison figures and on-top-of-the-beat eighth notes on bass. Nowhere, however, does she attempt to emulate Cole's vocal or piano style. Her own sultry, understated singing and crisp, straightforward piano combine to present a well-developed artistic vision that is distinctive enough to cast a new light on these classic songs.

'She brings great confidence to the mix, and...a sense of how to use that catch in her voice to marvelous effect. The effect is deepened by the contrast with the smoothness of her fundamental vocal sound: the tension between smooth and rough, like the teetering blue note, keeps us hanging on each phrase as it develops...'
