When Diana Krall went in the studio with T Bone Burnett to record her upcoming album, Glad Rag Doll, she says she wasn’t trying to make a period piece or a nostalgia record. Instead the jazz singer/pianist aimed to reimagine classic songs for the 21st century.
The 13 track album, due out September 25 on Verve, is described by Krall as a “song and dance record.”
“We all just went in there like the songs were written yesterday,” she says.
