Diana Krall performs tonight, June 12, at the splendid MGM Grand Theatre at the luxurious Foxwoods Resort Casino (I'm speechless!) in Connecticut, promoting both her good new CD "Quiet Nights" (Verve) and her excellent new DVD "Live in Rio" (Eagle/ST2). Not to be missed. Wish the GOMD could be here...
