Welcome to Canada, the first stop on our Jazz Around the World tour. Canada is a very large country, but we are going to spend our entire day here with just one artist: Ms Diana Krall.

Diana’s work has been recognized and lauded around the world. She has two Grammy’s and eight Juno awards.

On a personal note, back in the early 1980’s I heard the Dave Frishberg tune “Peel Me a Grape”. I was somewhat familiar with Frishberg’s work and thought it was a pretty cool song then. It was not until I heard Diana Krall’s version that the lyrics of the song really came to life. The song is a perfect blend of words and music.

Let’s bring Diana to the stage:

Peel Me a Grape

 

Este Seu Olhar

 

I Love Being Here With You

 

Maybe You’ll Be There
