Diana Krall at Las Vegas Hilton
Diana set to perform in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas Hilton has signed Grammy winner Diana Krall to her first Las Vegas appearance, with the popular entertainer performing four nights, June 14 -17 in the legendary Hilton Theater - featuring The Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra.
"Diana Krall is an incredible talent, and we're delighted that the Las Vegas Hilton will be the site of her Las Vegas debut", said Ken Ciancimino, the resort's executive vice president. "Diana continues the Las Vegas Hilton tradition of bringing great entertainment to the next level." This exclusive engagement also marks the start of her three-month long U.S. tour in support of her latest release, From This Moment On (Verve).
From This Moment On, both in songs, mood and delivery, reflects Krall's personal love for that golden era of song-making, when Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole were in their prime. The Hilton engagement is one of only two exclusive performances featuring Krall with the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, which also was featured on the album.
In 1993, Krall released her first album, Stepping Out, which she recorded with John Clayton and Jeff Hamilton. Her third, All for You: A Dedication to the Nat King Cole Trio (1996), was nominated for a Grammy and continued for 70 weeks on the Billboard jazz charts. She has won two Grammys, one for "Best Jazz Vocal Performance" (1999) for When I Look In Your Eyes (the first ever Jazz record nominated for "Best Album") and the other for "Best Jazz Vocal Album" (2002) for Live in Paris.
Krall has transcended the barriers of genre to become a popular artist who has carved herself a permanent position at the top of the jazz charts.
