Glad Rag Doll
by Diana Krall
Released: Oct 2012
Diana Krall teamed up with T-Bone Burnett for this collection of '20s and '30s covers, her 11th studio effort. Burnett's rustic production is a great complement to Krall's dusky alto, but the song selection tends to wander into fairly sappy territory. When all the elements align, however, Glad Rag Doll boasts a sophisticated mix of noir Americana on rockabilly-touched numbers like "I'm A Little Mixed Up" and "There Ain't No Sweet Man..." Krall's voice is a bit underutilized, though; the record's highly styled concept is much more a showpiece for Burnett's flawless capability as a producer.
