Quiet Nights

This new music album of 2009 is from Diana Krall. It is the 12th album by Diana Jean Krall. She is a Grammy Award-winning Canadian jazz pianist and singer from Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. The Quiet nights title originated from the title of bossanova standard "Corcocovado" that was popularized during early 60s.

The quiet nights album reached the #2 on Canadians Album Chart and #3 on the United State Billboard 200. The 2009 album sold 104,000 units during the first week of its release. Recently, it stands as the #1 top jazz album in billboard. My favorite songs from this 2009 Jazz album are "Where or When" (Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart), "Too Marvelous for Words" (Johnny Mercer, Richard A. Whiting), "I've Grown Accustomed to His Face" (Frederick Loewe, Alan Jay Lerner), "The Boy from Ipanema" (Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes, Norman Gimbel), and "Walk on By" (Burt Bacharach, Hal David). Other songs are "You're My Thrill" (Jay Gorney, Sidney Clare), "Este Seu Olhar" (Jobim), "So Nice" (Marcos Valle, Paulo Sérgio Valle, Gimbel), "Quiet Nights" (Jobim, Gene Lees), "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" (Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn), "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" (Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb), and "Everytime We Say Goodbye" (Cole Porter).
