Lexus and Jazz Music

I really like jazz music but, it’s one of those things I don’t normally follow. So, I was watching television the other night and there is this commercial for Lexus where all these different musicians, one on one, are sitting in the back of the car listening to it’s excellent audio system.

Well, one of the people “in the back seat” is Diana Krall who is describing the music she’s listening to. I didn’t know her and looked her up. I think her music is excellent (thank you iTunes) and she’s coming to Atlanta for a concert at Chastain Park in July. Guess I’ll be there. Funny how dominoes fall, huh?

Also, the 30th Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival has its headliners this coming weekend at Piedmont Park. Should be a good show.

    I believe Diana Krall is married to Elvis Costello, whom I adore. Never have listened to her music, though. Is it jazz?

    lot’s of blues influence and soulfulness (is that a word?). I think she does a lot of re-recordings of older songs, it seems.

    Yes she is married to Elvis Costello and he is in one of the Lexus spots also.

    30th Atlanta Jazz Fest: Bobby Hutcherson’s set on Sunday was awesome, the only straight-ahead jazz I heard all weekend :(

    Herbie was disappointing — kind of a blah, fusiony set of tunes with lack-luster performances all around. Last time I saw him was a trio date at Variety Playhouse back in 1999 which was miraculous.

    The crowds were *huge* and everybody I encountered was playing nice. Overall, a kick-butt festival. Next year… how about more jazz?
