The Synergy of Diana Krall and Elvis Costello

I just listened a little to Diana Krall's new CD at Amazon and it sounds very promising! I'll probably buy it this afternoon. This comment in one of the reviews, despite being a little harsh and exaggerated, struck a chord with me:

"I was NOT a Krall fan. In fact, I did not like her previous collection of stale cotton candy versions of jazz standards. They were simply boring musically and vocally. Being a hard core jazz fan, I have heard much better versions of those standards. To me she was a pretty face reintroducing standards to those who don't know they are standards. This disc, however, has made me a fan."
