On From This Moment On, Krall storms the bandstand with the Johnny Mercer "Day In, Day Out" featuring a rollicking piano solo finish, the Frank Sinatra classic "Come Dance With Me" (composed by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen) and the smokin' title track (Cole Porter). Her sensual side is brilliantly displayed on a beautiful reading of "Little Girl Blue" with the quartet. The record proves her signature smoky voice and stellar arrangements are at their swingin' best.
From This Moment On marks the singer, songwriter and pianist's first studio record of standards since 2001's platinum The Look of Love. 2005's smash Christmas Songs, was the top-selling new holiday album of the year. The #4 debut of 2004's The Girl in the Other Room, featuring 6 songs co-written by Krall and Elvis Costello, landed her the highest Billboard 200 chart position of her career.
"In songs, mood and delivery, From This Moment On reveals Krall's personal ardor for that golden era of song-making, when Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and (especially) Nat "King" Cole were in their prime. There's an economy and confidence that speak to the maturity of Krall as a performer, and a recording artist." - Ashley Kahn
