Diana Krall – Glad Rag Doll – Double Vinyl Records

Glad Rag Doll is an intriguing departure from Canadian jazz vocalist and pianist Diana Krall’s previous works, showcasing her exploration of jazz and popular songs from the 1920s and 1930s. Released in October 2012, this album features a mix of lesser-known old-time songs and vaudeville, bringing a fresh and somewhat vintage twist to her discography.

Produced by the renowned T Bone Burnett, known for his work with artists across various genres and his knack for authentic, rootsy sounds, Glad Rag Doll reveals a different side of Diana Krall. The album delves into the world of early American jazz and blues, bringing to life the music that resonated through an era filled with its own unique struggles and stories.

The album features a collection of songs that are both nostalgic and bittersweet, capturing the essence of a bygone musical era with a modern twist. The arrangements on Glad Rag Doll are crafted to highlight Krall’s versatility, with instruments like guitars, ukuleles, and even a marimba adding to its eclectic soundscape.

Songs like the title track “Glad Rag Doll,” “There Ain’t No Sweet Man That’s Worth the Salt of My Tears,” and “Just Like a Butterfly That’s Caught in the Rain” are performed with a sense of intimacy and immediacy that’s different from the polished, smooth jazz sound Krall is typically known for. This album isn’t just about showcasing vintage songs; it’s about evoking the atmosphere they were born in—a world teetering between two major wars and experiencing vast technological and social changes.

Glad Rag Doll received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised the album for its boldness and Krall’s willingness to step outside her musical comfort zone, while others missed the more familiar jazz stylings of her previous albums. However, the album was generally appreciated for its production quality and the authenticity of its arrangements.

Commercially, Glad Rag Doll performed well, charting in several countries and adding another dimension to Krall’s successful career. It opened up discussions about the relevance and reinterpretation of early 20th-century music in modern times.

Glad Rag Doll stands out in Diana Krall’s discography as an experimental project that pays homage to the music of earlier decades while also allowing her to experiment with different sounds and styles. This album enriches her musical narrative, showcasing her as an artist capable of traversing musical times and styles with ease and sophistication.

For those interested in the history of jazz and popular music, or for fans of Diana Krall looking for a deeper understanding of her artistic range, “Glad Rag Doll” offers a fascinating listen, providing a window into the past through the lens of one of contemporary jazz’s most celebrated musicians.
