Diana Krall is a brilliant singer and Jazz musician. I taped her set at the JVC Newport Jazz Festival
with her trio, including Russell Malone on guitar and Ben Harper on bass. In the harbor, just a stone’s throw from the stage, sat the QE 2, which can be seen in the reverse shots of the stage. She was just starting to breakout and get noticed around the time that we were taping her set. She also hosted the program, sang like a bird, was easy on the eyes and I couldn’t find a bad angle on her. We decided to forego the usual cladding on the face of the historic fort that served as the backdrop which gave the shots a natural look.
