Diana Krall: “Fly Me To The Moon”

Shamelessly “borrowed” from Paul Krugman (but I promised to return it when you folks are done). In honor, of course, of Newt “the Moonbase” Gingrich.

This is a very good song and an excellent version. Modern, but true to its jazz-lounge roots. Perfect for singers who, like Ms. Krall, have an ear for which off-beats to come in on.

Note those big ten-finger chords at the start of her solo. Reminds me of Brubeck in his prime (Dave’s solo starts at 2:42).


In other words, please be true. One can only hope.
