A remarkable voice, A dazzling view!

Flowers blooming around the park, the smell of wet field coming right through your nose, the cold freshing wind with a sweet air, inspiring and touching for loving couples. The autumn use to be a season for love or sorrow. However its charming goes away far than a sad night or a blue heart. Maybe that's the reason why most part of jazzist musicians loves singing of the season.

And speaking on the witch, LOL (kidding) It ain't no secret (maybe for those who doesn't know anything about me) I'm a loving fan of jazz. Why of that? not even I can describe the right feeling while hearing it some kind of excitement and a joy. Fortunately the very first time I heard was a song by Louis Armstrong, Since then I keep listenning to the oldies and the new ones.

The Art of Jazz is based on the improvising, while a single talent can build up a whole band, a Talent band can put down a house. Great Musicians such as Duke Ellington, Milles, Dizzie, Goodman, Coltrane and too many others that lively knew how to put their hearts in a guitar or a bass and shared their pain or joy without none of us could ever noticed.

Thanks to some beloved friends who decided to show me the path of good music. A few Days I was finally able to buy the DVD of Diana Krall - Live at Paris(2001) (photo) and it keeps playing on and on till some scratches appears at the cd. With a well-selected set list she drives you crazy through some great scenes of old school jazz, from Louis Armstrong, to Nat King Cole, giving a tribute to Frank (Sinatra), She is absolutely outstanding on the show, you can realize the satisfying moments surrounding the musicians.. (such as Anthony Wilson or John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton).

Althought She has a great technique and a virtuoso singer, it's not the time to say that she may be compared to Billie. But I'm pretty sure that she will be right there any sooner. So far, the Goldie blondie really worthed every penny spent on it.
