Five-time Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall has achieved cross-over success with her smoky voice, bop piano styles and pop and rock infused sounds. She returns to her jazz roots on her latest studio album, Turn Up The Quiet. On February 24, Krall takes these roots to the stage at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. On Turn Up The Quiet, Krall, who is the only jazz singer to have eight albums reach the top of the Billboards Jazz chart, reinterprets a collection of eleven intimate jazz standards from the Great American Songbook. The live performance will feature songs from this 2017 album, including romantic standards such as L-O-V-E, Night and Day and Blue Skies. The Canadian singer’s signature contralto vocals and smooth jazz style make old standards seem fresh while still honoring the classic melodies her audiences know by heart.
