She projects, to me, a spoiled brat persona that I just cannot get around. I tend to think of Martha Stewart whenever I see or hear her.

    Although I'm a Diana Krall fan I know what you mean. Her voice is not technically great, but to me her phrasing is interesting. She also has a great small group.

    . . . . .Martha Stewart

    Did you know Diana is married to Elvis Costello?
    I'm really diggin Patricia Barber, especially "Mythologies". Lots of quiet, patient space for the artistry to come through. Weird-wild-poetic lyrics, lovely keys, and excellent production.

    I also learned something last night because of this thread. I don't know why, but I never realized what a skillful artist Clifford Brown was. His solo on Joy Spring from the Brown-Roach album below is mind-blowingly brilliant. Now looking for the Complete EmArcy on vinyl.
