There was Karrim Riggins on drums and Robert Hurst on bass who were on some of the tracks from her latest album. I agree with brf that the sidemen somewhat overshadowed her...it was even a little embar...

Did any fellow canuckleheads catch (ahem) Diana Krall at Massey Hall last night? Pretty slick concert featuring an updated take on a lot of her popular pieces. Most impressive to me was violinist Stuart Duncan who performed an otherworldly solo on "Temptation". Traffic and parking was a ni...
