World-renowned jazz singer and pianist Diana Krall brings her “Wallflower World Tour” to the Hollywood Bowl on Friday and Saturday, August 28 and 29, 2015, at 8:00 PM, performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The LA Phil, led by conductor Chris Walden, will accompany Krall in selections from Wallflower, released earlier this year by Verve Records. Produced by 16-time Grammy®-winning producer David Foster, Wallflower finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time. The album features classics from the late ’60s to present day that have inspired Krall since her early years, as well as an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney, “If I Take You Home Tonight.”
Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, her albums have garnered five Grammy® Awards and eight Juno® Awards. She has also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Her unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time.
Each evening begins with a set by Gregory Porter, the two-time Grammy nominee acclaimed as “the brilliant new voice in jazz,” backed by his four-piece band. Known for his catchy melodies, poignant songs, and soulful baritone voice, Porter’s most recent album Liquid Spirit sees him reflecting upon his childhood, romances, and socio-economic observations. Liquid Spirit, which marks Porter’s debut with Blue Note Records, follows two critically acclaimed indie label albums that propelled him to the upper echelon of contemporary male jazz singers.
