The music of Diana Krall gets the Vitamin label's strings tribute here, and it translates nicely enough, even if the songs fade a little into the jazz combo background without a vocal presence to guide them. Highlights include "Let's Fall in Love" with its sweeping background violin work and the compact, evocative combo of bass, viola, and violin on "Detroit Blues." ~ Johnny Loftus
