No singer currently active is better than Krall at these oh-so-slow ballads, where she manages to expose every raw nerve end hidden in the melody and the lyrics. She almost sounds as if she is secluded by herself in some quiet nook, singing only to soothe herself. The jazz world with its ballsy, macho culture, hardened in a century of jam sessions, is almost too hostile a soil to support such delicate blossoms. But somehow Krall not only survives, but rises to a high degree of fame. Finally, something is going right in the music world! Joni Mitchell's confessional song is a perfect match for this singer, and she rises to the occasion. You can sense the quiet electricity in the hushed audience. They know that they are hearing something special. You will too.
