Diana Krall and Marian McPartland

Jun 28, 2018

Grammy-award winning artist Diana Krall took the jazz world by storm in the late 90s and within a few years became one of the best-selling jazz artists of her time. After having reached out to Marian for mentorship as a teenager, Krall was just kicking off her career when she was a guest on this 1995 Piano Jazz. She tells McPartland how she got her start by singing and playing with her grandmother. The two have fun with a few duets, and McPartland accompanies Krall on the timeless standard “Body and Soul.”
