Canadian Tour Dates Announced
Universal Music Canada / Verve Records is pleased to announce that international jazz superstar, Diana Krall will be touring coast-to-coast this Spring to promote her 12th studio album, Quiet Nights.
This tour marks the first time that Krall will perform tracks from Quiet Nights for her Canadian fans. The 15-city national tour, presented by CBC Radio 2, kicks-off April 15 in Calgary, AB and ends May 13 in her hometown of Vancouver, BC. Select markets also features performances with Orchestra (see below).
Quiet Nights will be available for purchase March 31st. Celebrating this highly anticipated new release, Quiet Nights takes listeners on a romantic and intimate journey through the lush textures of her ballads and bossa novas. Even those already familiar with the breathy vocals and rhythmic lilt in Krall’s music – and there are millions – will be taken aback by just how far the music pushes, unabashedly, into the realm of sweet surrender.
Krall co-produced the album with Tommy LiPuma, and has reunited with the legendary Claus Ogerman for the first time since 2001’s Look of Love. The album was recorded in the famed Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA with Al Schmitt engineering and mixing.
