Diana Krall's The Look of Love won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album, a masterpiece produced by Verve Music Group Chairman Tommy LiPuma and incredibly recorded by Al Schmitt, the album is a lush cinematic collection of ten ballads and Bossa Nova melodies featuring the London Symphony Orchestra arranged and conducted by the legendary Claus Ogerman. Diana Krall sounds like never before on this 2LP 45rpm cut!

The Look of Love doesn't tamper with Diana Krall's ongoing success, continuing the emphasis on romantic ballads and embracing them with lush string arrangements. At the core, of course, is Krall's voice. She's developing into one of the great torch singers, with an approach that's both direct and subtly nuanced, true to the song and yet deeply personal. There's a combination of restraint and drama here, as Krall ranges from the confident to the wistful, from loss to playful insinuation, as each song requires.

Krall's longstanding relationship with LiPuma (Barbra Streisand, Natalie Cole) shines through here as he wonderfully showcases her mastery as a vocalist and pianist like no other. "Cry Me a River" is bittersweet triumph, while "Love Letters" and "Maybe You'll Be There" maintain the most tenuous emotional hold, at once fragile and resilient. "Besame Mucho" and "Dancing in the Dark" are sultry romances wafted on light Latin beats. The songs develop their intimacy in the setting of Krall's quartet, which usually includes bassist Christian McBride and drummer Peter Erskine and several fine guitarists, most frequently Russell Malone. They're a superb complement to her voice and piano, and the close communication carries through the depth and sheen added by Claus Ogerman's rich orchestrations.

In order to achieve the best possible sound ORG has cut The Look Of Love on 4 sides and at 45rpm to allow the maximum cutting level. This gives the record the best signal to noise ratio, better dynamics, less inner groove distortion and better overall sound!
