  Diana meet Cleveland (6/30)

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

International jazz superstar, Diana Krall is on tour to promote her 12th studio album, Quiet Nights. This tour marks the first time that Krall will perform tracks from the new album, for her fans. 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.
