Diana Krall

After writing about k.d. lang yesterday, a comment from a blogging buddy led me to think about about k.d.'s fellow-Canadian singer, Diana Krall. A quick look at Diana's chart (14 November 1964, Nanaimo, Canada, time unknown)
shows some similarities with k.d.'s.
(12 noon chart shown)

Both singers' charts have an emphasis on Scorpio and Virgo, both have Venus (planet of music and the arts) in its home sign of Libra, and within a degreee of each other-Lang @ 18.57*Libra, Krall @ 19.55*Libra.

Whereas Diana Krall sticks to jazz interpretations, k.d.'s style is wider ranging, more contemporary and a little nearer to the popular market, but neither is exactly mainstream. They are both of the generation with Uranus and Pluto in Virgo, and both undoubtedly have a distinctive sound - passionate, sexy, yet still delicate. A sound liable to bring on goosebumps and curled toes. Scorpio/Virgo/Libra is a potent mix!

Here is Diana Krall singing my favourite, Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You". I think she sings it better than Joni.

and here, with Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are"
