There's a new Diana Krall album out, though it has Paul McCartney on vocals and his name on the cover. This is all a good thing. All right, so that's a severely reductive way to describe McCartney's fine new album of old standards, "Kisses on the Bottom." But it's clear Macca ceded a great deal of creative control to Krall, who plays piano on every track but one and is credited with the rhythm arrangements, and her longtime producer Tommy LiPuma, not to mention frequent Krall collaborators like orchestrator Johnny Mandel. Funny that, »

With the impeccable pedigree of Diana Krall and Tommy LiPuma behind the boards as producers (and with Krall’s band backing Sir Paul), there’s no question that Paul McCartney’s new album, “Kisses On The Bottom,” is going to sound tasteful and smooth. And it does. At times, so much it hurts. It’s as if you can hear every bristle on the brushes as they hit the drums and every plucked upright bass string. There is not a note out of place. This is your grandfather’s McCartney: forget about imagining any cute head shaking, that he still, improbably, pulls off at 69. Focused »
It’s a legend’s prerogative to do whatever he or she likes, and Paul McCartney has exercised that prerogative plenty over the last couple of decades, turning out an oratorio, classical albums, some experimental electronic music, and other un-pop efforts. Kisses On The Bottom, its name taken from a line in the song “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter,” is McCartney’s probably inevitable standards album, a concept that allows him to play the contented crooner with Diana Krall and her backing band, as well as special guests Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.

Listen and Watch Miley Cyrus Cover Dylan
The world of music is about to honor the legendary Bob Dylan. The tribute comes in the shape of a new album called “Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan”. It’ll be a whopper. There will be 76 tracks on this tribute album, and best of all, the proceeds will go to Amnesty International. You can’t beat that, unless of course you’re offering a fresh new music video. Miley Cyrus is doing just that. She covers the Dylan tune, “You’re Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go”, and because she’s a good sport, she has even made a video to go with the piece.
The 19-year old has put a country flavor on the track, which originally hit as a part of the 1975 album, “Blood on the Tracks”. She also nixes the harmonica for her version of the song. »
