Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

ancy the mu­si­cal equiv­a­lent of en­joy­ing a glass of wine in a bub­ble bath? Then take note: Diana Krall is bring­ing her dis­tinc­tive sul­try tones to the city for a night of jazz and pop clas­sics. The renowned jazz pi­anist and singer, who has won five Grammy awards, is on a world tour to pro­mote her 12th stu­dio al­bum, Wallflower. Krall, who be­gan play­ing the pi­ano when she was just four years old, is renowned for her husky vo­cals and sen­si­tive tin­kling of the ivories. With her emo­tive cov­ers of pop­u­lar songs, she has sold more albums than any other fe­male jazz artist in the past 30 years. Her lat­est al­bum takes a dis­tinct turn in the di­rec­tion of pop and fea­tures tunes with Bryan Adams and Michael Bublé. Ex­pect an evening of bop­ping along to the likes of the Ma­mas & the Pa­pas’ Cal­i­for­nia Dream­ing and sway­ing epi­cally to the Ea­gles’ rock bal­lad Des­per­ado. It’s just the thing to give you a lift on a cold win­ter’s night on the wrong side of the hol­i­day sea­son. Jan­uary 24; 8pm; $480–880; Asi­aworld-expo; hk­tick­et­ing.com
