What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

Backed by the Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, the Canadian-born vocalist Diana Krall fills up the tempo of the song with holiday cheer. Her sound so intimate that you might swear the sexy singer is crooning exclusively for you at midnight on Christmas Eve. Krall excels with an approach mastered long ago: elegant delivery that gives extra polish to a very familiar global favorite. This segment takes you through a Diane Krall performance of "What Are You Doing New Years Eve". Credits: http://www.dianakrall.com

I happen to love Diana Krall.  I could listen to her husky, sensuous voice all day.  I guess this post is a bit of a short cut for me, but I have been getting ready for a trip to New Orleans today and will be gone until Saturday.  Don't worry, I have scheduled posts for the time that I will be gone, as I don't really know if I would have the time to post while I am in New Orleans.

So as the song says:

Maybe it’s much too early in the game
Ah, but I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?

I will be driving back from New Orleans some time on New Year's Eve, so I will probably get home and ring in the New Year by myself.  I have a bottle of champagne just waiting for me when I get back.  I'd love to hear what you guys are doing for New Year's Eve.  Anything exciting?

Probably by myself - at least no one has called to say "come on over" and I just can't invite myself, ya know?

Have a great, safe trip!

Peace <3

Safe travels, Joe. Have a great time in the Crescent City.

Nothing exciting in PA. After the most stressful Christmas I can remember with obligations coming from every direction, my partner and I plan on a casual dinner out, followed by drinks on the couch in front of the fireplace, the dog wedged in between us.

I absolutely love Diana Krall. I heard her for the first time when I was much younger. There's so much warmth and depth to her voice. Thanks for posting.

Have a safe trip back! Happy New Years as well!
