There’s still time to get tickets for Grammy-award winning, Canadian jazz icon Diana Krall at Frederik Meijer Garden tonight. She is currently touring material from May’s Turn Up the Quiet, as well selections from the rest of her 13 album discography. The new record features a murder’s row of guests: Christian McBride, Karriem Riggins, Tony Garnier, Stuart Duncan, Marc Ribot, and more. As with many of her most acclaimed albums, it was co-produced by Tommy LiPuma.

Krall was worked with everyone from Tony Bennett to Ray Charles to Barbra Streisand throughout her near 25 year long career. Often juggling duties as pianist, vocalist, and band leader, Krall’s records encapsulate a joy and complexity that can get even the most downtrodden tapping their feet.
