Yvan and I are big music lovers...we love all genres with the exception of country I think. (Now don't all you country lovers get twisted in a knot - we just aren't that into it! Are there some good country singers, songs, albums? - sure but we just don't have a hankering for Hank Williams Sr. or Jr. that's all)
We go to a lot of concerts because we both love live music. We love Jazz a lot and while we aren't aficionados we are definitely lovers of the various styles of Jazz.
Last night we had the immense pleasure of going to see Diana Krall in concert. It was the most intimate, relaxed evening of music I have been to in a long time.
She is lovely, funny, witty and plays a wicked jazz piano. Did I mention she is Canadian and married to Elvis Costello? It's true.
We were seated really close thanks to our friends Kristie and Joel getting excellent seats for the 4 of us (2nd row) so you could actually see her fingers as they moved across the keys. It was an excellent way to spend a Sunday evening.
Her backing trio of musicians were definitely masters of their craft and we were just as enthralled by their presence on stage as we were of hers.
If she happens to be playing where you are, I highly recommend you go and see her.
