Diana Krall is an absolutely classic name in the history of the EDPCOOLJAZZ festival. The artist has a unique musical style, with more than 15 albums. In 2020 she released the new album “This Dream Of You” and will be at EDPCOOLJAZZ on July 27th 2022 to present this new album at Hipódromo Manuel Possolo, in Cascais.
“This Dream Of You” is an album edited from recordings made in 2016 and 2017. This new work has a quartet composed by John Clayton, Jeff Hamilton and Anthony Wilson in “Almost Like Being In Love” and in “That’s All”, and a trio with Christian McBride and Russell Malone, who play on “Autumn In New York” and “There Is No You” and “Don’t Smoke In Bed”. The last session at Capitol Studios featured an ensemble that includes Stuart Duncan’s violin, which is heard on “Just You, Just Me”, guitarist Marc Ribot, and a rhythm section formed by Tony Garnier and Karriem Riggins. This line-up plays in the recreation of Irving Berlin’s “How Deep Is The Ocean” and Bob Dylan’s “This Dream Of You,” which includes the accordion played by Diana’s uncle Randall Krall.
The artist was in Portugal at the last edition of the festival to a sold-out audience at the Hipódromo Manuel Possolo, maintaining a faithful and happy relationship with the Portuguese public. The jazzy queen returns to the stage of the most ecofriendly festival in the country in 2022, to present a new work and revisit the classics of a career spanning more than 20 years.
