The disc with the orchestral backing suite alongside Diana Krall and her quartet (CD1 of the Deluxe Edition) is great as it is.
But CD2 with just Barbra and Diana Krall’s quartet has all the intimacy of a performance just for you (and whoever is listening with you) in a jazz club. The old gal has aged gracefully and her voice is just simply wonderful. You can just tell that some of the performances on this album come from a place in her where she has really lived out the lyrics that she is singing.
I’m going to be listening to this for years to come.
