Stay Current with the Pick of the Day: Diana Krall

Diana Krall has been arguably the most prominent jazz vocalist in the world for more than a decade. Between winning two Grammy Awards, eight Juno Awards (Canada’s version of the Grammys) and having five albums chart in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200, no jazz artist has done more to put the genre back on the map in today’s music world. Krall has made it cool to listen to love ballads on piano, and her contralto vocals are likely the inspiration for the phrase “honey-smoked,” which writers often use when attempting to describe a female singer’s vocals. The best part: she doesn’t resort to using the same tricks over and over again, as she demonstrates on her most recent album, Glad Rag Doll, which features blues, funk, acoustic and Spanish guitar numbers in addition to her signature piano sound. $59.50-$89.50, 7pm Sunday, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
