Diana Krall at Hanover Theatre
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, ten Juno® Awards and have also earned nine gold, three platinum, and seven multi-platinum albums. Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time.
The Turn Up The Quiet World Tour has wowed audiences with material from Krall’s stunning latest album from Verve Records, “Turn Up The Quiet,” and has now become the biggest in Krall’s career. DOWNBEAT Magazine called the album "spellbinding” and wrote, “Krall knows how to put her own distinctive stamp on decades-old standards, making them sound fresh and vibrant."
“Turn Up The Quiet” holds significant importance, as it was the last recording Krall made with her long-time mentor and collaborator, producer Tommy LiPuma, before his sudden passing last year. The album is dedicated to his memory.
