The Look Of Love  performed by  Diana Krall  (2001)
Composed by Bacharach/David
Arranged by Claus Ogerman
From: USA
Recommended by eftimihn [profile] on Wednesday 18th August 2004

For "The Look Of Love" Diana Krall managed to bring the legendary Claus Ogerman out of his retirement as an arranger (in fact, at that point, he didn't arrange for other people for 15 years or so). That was due to the fact that Krall's longtime producer, Tommy LiPuma (who did some marvelous production work for A&M in the late 60s e.g. for Claudine Longet or The Sandpipers) used to work with Ogerman in the past and so Claus got on board. While Krall's jazz followers found the result all too schmaltzy i just love it. The track is a very laid back, gentle, cool sounding version with a subtle bossa rhythm. And the arrangement and production is as immaculate as you might expect with Mrs. Krall giving a fine vocal performance, reminding me a lot of Julie London.

from The Look Of Love, available on CD (Verve)

Other Versions: Duty Springfield, Claudine Longet, Anita Kerr Singers, Dionne Warwick, Sergio Mendes and many, many others
