Tickets on sale Friday
The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, welcomes Diana Krall at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, 2015. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and singer Krall's new studio album "Wallflower" (Verve Records) will be released Feb. 3. It is a collection of songs from the late '60s to present day that inspired Krall in her early years. Produced by 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, the album finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time.
Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable performing artists. Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist in the past 30 years, establishing her as one of the best-selling artists of her generation. Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, she has won five Grammys, eight Juno Awards, and she's earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.
The new album marks Krall's first studio effort since 2012's "Glad Rag Doll," produced by T Bone Burnett.
